Choice Hotels Australasia is pleased to announce they have joined the SuperGold Card programme to offer accommodation discounts to seniors.

The SuperGold Card programme now has more than 930 business partners offering a large range of discounts and concessions at 4915 outlets across New Zealand. Now SuperGold Card holders will be able to use their cards to receive discounts internationally.
Launched in August 2007, the SuperGold Card is a free discounts and concessions card available to all New Zealand residents who are 65 and older, or who receive New Zealand Superannuation or a Veteran’s Pension.

Choice Hotels is offering up to 20 per cent off their standard accommodation rate to SuperGold Card holders.

“We are delighted to offer this 20 per cent discount to SuperGold Card holders,” says Marketing Manager Mardi Brown.

“Choice Hotels offer our senior customers a great place to stay and a price to suit when they are away from home. The up to 20 per cent discount shows just how much we value our senior customers.”

The SuperGold Card provides discounts on a wide range of everyday goods and services, as well as easy access to central and local government entitlements. There are two versions of the card; an “S-branded” SuperGold Card and a special “V-branded” Veterans SuperGold Card.

SuperGold Card business manager Tim Bryers says having such a well known brand as a business partner is very exciting. “I’m sure SuperGold Card holders will value and enjoy the commitment that Choice Hotels has made to the programme, especially as their discount can also be redeemed internationally.”
