New! Also in Germany

A creative idea as target: Why can one only get train tickets at half price and not hotel stays? That is the question that kept two young Swiss entrepreneurs busy 8 years ago. Their answer to it was the initial spark: that same year, they launched the Hotelcard – also named as the “half-fare” card for hotels and known as BahnCard 50 in Germany.


Since its creation, Hotelcard AG has recorded remarkable growth in all areas. The number of selected partner hotels is increasing daily: Today, more than 620 hotels in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Italy can be booked with 50% discount. A success story in the small Alpine republic, which finds a promising continuation in the land of poets and thinkers.


Top quality for little money

Whether for summer holidays at gorgeous lakes, wellness weekends with beautiful mountain landscapes or business trips in the pulsing big cities: Thanks to Hotelcard, overnight stays in your own or neighboring countries are now totally affordable - without losing quality. All German leisure lovers can benefit from this added value. New Hotelcard members can try the Hotelcard free of charge for 30 days and convince themselves immediately of the advantages.

Since the start of the adventure, the founders pursued the goal of promoting tourism, in particular the hotel industry. This was achieved on the one hand by getting hotels to participate by offering 50% discount on their room rates during periods where fewer reservations were placed and on the other hand by offering Hotelcard members these special half price deals to profit from. Thanks to this business model, hotels can better cover their fixed costs while Hotelcard members can enjoy a 50% discount in all selected hotels.

The hotels are individually and carefully selected before they are added to the platform. Hotelcard members get access this network of exclusive accommodation facilities and can book suites, family, double and single rooms at half price as often as desired. The card is valid per room for two persons. Partners, family members or friends can thus benefit too,  even without having their own Hotelcard.
