Processing time and delivery

While mail delivery dates and schedules are outside our control, we aim to process and post your membership pack including your personalised membership card within five working days. New Zealand Post aims to deliver 95% of standard domestic mail within three working days, but rural or remote area delivery may take longer. An express service is available at an extra charge for delivery to a New Zealand address only.

International mail involves other providers so please allow at least 21 days for most overseas deliveries. If you have not received your membership pack, please contact our Membership Advisor for a replacement membership card.

Accessing membership benefits: your card

The agreements we have with all our partners and providers of membership privileges require presentation of a valid membership card in order to obtain the goods or services.  Our suppliers and international partners may ask you for additional identification. We do not provide electronic or other verification of your membership as an alternative to presentation of your membership card so you can visit international properties or otherwise access good and services provided by third parties while you await delivery of your membership card.
