Gold Elite 2-for-1 and 4-for-2 rates are big benefits of Club Carlson Visa for EMEA travel

Yesterday a comment on my blog made me realize I never checked Club Carlson Gold elite 2-for-1 or 4-for-2  member discount rates for weekend stays at Club Carlson hotels in Europe, Middle East and Africa – EMEA, when I planned out my September trips.

I might have planned my itinerary a little differently in Norway, if I had seen the great rates offered with 2-for-1 discounts.

An interesting observation I made this morning is I can’t find any reference to Club Carlson’s Gold Elite 2-for-1 rate when I go on the Club Carlson website and look at benefits for Gold elite members. I happen to know the direct links to these discount rates.

Club Carlson Visa card members are granted complimentary Gold elite membership, an elite level that normally requires 20 stays or 35 nights in a calendar year.

Here are some examples of low rates available with the Club Carlson 2-for-1 Gold Elite rate.

Club Carlson 4-for-2 rate:

Radisson Blu Nydalen Oslo $75 per night October 1-5, 2015

Rad Blu Nydalen Oslo 4-for-2 rate

Club Carlson 2-for-1 rate:

Radisson Blu Polar Hotel, Spitsbergen, Longyearbyen, Norway

$107.40 per night September 18-20.

Rad Blu Longyearbyen $107 2-for-1

Club Carlson 4-for-2 rate:

Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Copenhagen

$81.48 per night October 15-19.

Rad Blu Copenhagen $81 4-for-2

Club Carlson 4-for-2 rate:

Park Inn Prague

$36.40 per night November 5-9, 2015.

Park Inn Prague 4-for-2 $36

There are some incredible deals for hotels in Europe using Club Carlson 2-for-1 and 4-for-2 rates available to Gold and Concierge elite members. Park Inn Prague at $36.40 per night is comparable to the price of IHG PointBreaks hotels at 5,000 points per night. Even better is Club Carlson 2-for-1 and 4-for-2 rates are paid rates that earn points and qualify for promotions.

The easiest way for U.S. residents to earn Club Carlson Gold elite membership is through the Club Carlson Visa card.

  1. I clicked on the link and it states at “participating” hotels in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Is there a list of which hotels are “participating” ones? Is it just the three pictured at each link or is it a try and see kind of thing? None of the pictures at the link match the hotels you have listed above.

  2. Have you stayed at club carlson hotels? The status is almost useless. Sorry, just like the card.

  3. Not useless, just not luxurious … the status has basically been a ticket to some good promotions, especially at properties in N. Europe. Again, not luxurious, and occasionally quirky and interesting.

  4. @G says – You have to try to book the rate to see if it is available. There is not a list of participating properties. Dozens of hotels in EMEA offer the 2-for-1 and 4-for-2 rates.

    @Jonathan – I have stayed in Club Carlson hotels in Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Norway, UK, and USA. I have booked 2-for-1 rates in Germany, Ireland and Norway to save hundreds of dollars and earn thousands of points.

    Gold status has real value with the 2-for-1 savings. The Club Carlson Visa card gives Gold elite status.
