There are 5 types of membership: Basic, Smart, VIP, Platinum or Platinum+. To attest the type of membership we have created 4 different card designs, which also differ in their colour. (There are likewise 5 types of Partner memberships: Basic, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum+ Here, due to the different designation, both the name and the colour of Partner membership cards differ from those of Best membership cards.) And our club gives club membership to our sponsors without paying membership fee.
Basic membership refers to a basic level of membership, with which members can access our website and take advantage of the discounts offered, but will be limited to a restricted level of service within certain applications and will only be able to participate in our events at the Basic discount level.
Smart membership increases the discounts available when participating in our programmes and offers unrestricted use of our services. Our Smart members can take up employment at our company with a SMART-type employment contract.
Our VIP members can enjoy maximum discounts and can use all applications and services of our programmes and website. Our VIP members can take up employment at our company with a VIP-type employment contract, with a top management income.
Platinum members can enjoy special discounts according to our special offer. Our Platinum members can take up employment at our company with a Platinum-type employment contract.
Platinum+ members also get special discounts in our unique offer. Our Platinum+ members can take up employment at our company with a Platinum+ type employment contract. Becoming Platinum or Platinum+ member is possible on an individual basis.
Only natural persons who accept our Conditions of Use and the Data Protection Statement on our website as binding in their regard can become Best Club members. The representatives of our partners and sponsors will also gain membership in our club. Our members shall cooperate in the interest of accomplishing the goals of our club and shall pay the membership fee.
Membership is for one year. However, you can also pay the membership fee in instalments. We will mail you your Best card that attests your membership only after receipt of the full yearly membership fee.
Purchasing Club Membership
Users, after activation of their Profile, become Club Members, and they can use our website, apply for and enter the competitions and contests. The membership fee will be deducted automatically only on the 2 day of their membership. During the prior 1 day period the member can delete his profile at any time, thereby terminating his membership and thus from these members we will not deduct the membership fee as from the members on the 2 day. In case the member does not terminate his membership, the deducted membership fee can not be refunded. It is not possible to refund the membership fee which was deducted on the 2 day.
In case the user decides to purchase the club membership, at the moment of receiving the membership fee, the user becomes a member. If the member wishes to terminate his membership in the first 1 day of membership, within the legal framework of our company, at his/her sole discretion, we shall refund the fee. Managing to initiate this, the member has to contact us, and request the termination of his membership. The membership fee shall be refunded by European Tourism Club of Malta Ltd. into the bank account number provided by the member.
In case the member starts to use the advantages of membership, for example applying for at least one of our competitions or using discounts provided by our Partners, the member expressly renounces the opportunity of refunding the membership fee.
Your club membership lasts one year, starting from the receipt of the membership fee. Following the receipt of your membership fee we will send you your card electronically (e-card), which you can download and use straight away on our website and take advantage of its discounts at our points of acceptance. Following the receipt of your one-year membership fee, we will send you your card to your address.
Your membership can be terminated in different ways. If your membership is not renewed, it will expire on the 15th day following the end of the previous period. After the expiry of your membership you will only have limited access to our website and will not be able to enjoy your 5-50% discount at acceptance locations.
Your membership can also be terminated through disqualification from our club, should you violate our Code of Ethics, Community Guidelines, Conditions of Use, or Data Protection Statement. In this case you will not be able to claim a refund of your membership fee.
If you do not wish to continue your membership of our club, you have a possibility for 7 days, 14 days before the termination of your membership to switch off the automatic renewal of membership on your Profile page. You can also cancel your membership on your profile page, using the "Delete profile" button.
Your club membership is renewed automatically on the 15th day of the month following the end of your previous membership period. Our system will automatically deduct your membership fee from your account.
