HalalBooking Loyalty Club status tiers and benefits
For each stay, you earn:
By earning Status Points you reach and renew higher status: Platinum and Diamond.
Earned Cash Points can be spent to pay for new bookings, saving you real money. Plus, they never expire.
The HB Loyalty Club (HBLC) has 3 status tiers - Gold, Platinum and Diamond. When you join you start with Gold status. You reach Platinum and Diamond status by earning Points after each stay booked on HalalBooking®.
You earn Status Points for each stay booked on HalalBooking. Status Points are credited to your membership account after the check-out from the hotel. The more Status Points you earn during the year, the more benefits you receive as you reach a higher HBLC status.
In the past our website listed hotels mainly in Turkey. But recently we have launched 430,000 hotels in 100 countries. To encourage you to discover new destinations - you earn 2x Status Points when you stay at a hotel outside Turkey, making it easier and faster to reach or renew a higher status.
For hotels in Turkey:
Gold members earn 1 Status Point per $1 spent on stays. Platinum members earn 1.25 Status Points. Diamond members earn 1.50 Status Points.
For hotels outside Turkey:
Gold members earn 2 Status Points per $1 spent on stays. Platinum members earn 2.5 Status Points. Diamond members earn 3 Status Points.
In addition to Status Points you also earn Cash Points for every stay booked on HalalBooking. Cash Points will be credited to your membership account after the check-out from the hotel. Also, there are many other ways to earn Cash Points such as writing property reviews and referring friends. For example, writing a review may earn you up to 2,500 Cash Points. 1 Cash Point = $0.01. Cash Points never expire (as long as your account stays active, i.e you sign-in to your account at least once a year). Cash Points cannot be converted into real money.
It is easy to spend your cash points at the final payment stage of your new booking. Under Payment you will see options to spend some or all of your cash points. The final reduced price will be calculated automatically depending on the total price of your booking and the amount of cash points you would like to spend.
Gold members earn 1 Cash Point per $1 spent on stays. Platinum members earn 1.25 Cash Points. Diamond members earn 1.50 Cash Points.
REACH HIGHER STATUS
You reach Platinum or Diamond status as soon as you have earned 3,000 or 10,000 Status Points within one calendar year (i.e. current membership year). The new status is valid for the rest of the current membership year and the whole next membership year.
For example, if you start the 2023 membership year as GOLD and during 2023 earn 3,000 Status Points, you become PLATINUM for the rest of 2023 and for the whole of 2024. If you earn 10,000 Status Points within 2023, you become DIAMOND for the rest of 2023 and the whole of 2024 (and you are guaranteed at least PLATINUM for 2025 due to SOFT LANDING rule - see below).
Your membership profile screen always shows how many points you earned so far and how many more points you need to reach the next status.
RENEW YOUR STATUS
If you already start the current year as Platinum or Diamond - to renew your status to the next year - you need to earn 3,000 or 10,000 Status Points within the current year. To make it easy for you to renew your status - all your Surplus Points earned in the previous year are rolled over to the current year. Surplus Points are status points earned in the previous year from stays only above the minimum requirement for your current status. Surplus Points earned in the previous year are rolled over to the current year only and not to next year. Also, it is easier to renew your status than to reach it again if you lose it - it is because Platinum/Diamond members earn 25/50% more Status Points per $1 spent than Gold members.
Example 1: You start 2023 as PLATINUM and earned 4,000 Status Points from stays in 2022. PLATINUM’s minimum requirement is 3,000 Status Points, so your 4,000 Status Points mean you earned 1,000 Surplus Points in 2022. These will be rolled over to 2023 making it easier for you to renew your PLATINUM status into 2024, because instead of 3,000 Status Points in 2023 you only need to earn 2,000 Status Points. Also earning these 2,000 Status Points is easier for you now in 2023 because as a PLATINUM member you earn 1.25 Status Points per $1 spent (unlike GOLD members who earn 1 Status Point). Therefore, $1,600 (instead of $2,000) spent will earn you 2,000 Points needed to renew your PLATINUM status into 2024. And if your stays are at hotels outside Turkey, due to the “2x Status Points” rule mentioned above, just $800 spent instead of $1,600 will earn you 2,000 Points.
Example 2: You start 2023 as DIAMOND and earned 12,500 Status Points from stays in 2022. DIAMOND’s minimum requirement is 10,000 Status Points, so your 12,500 Status Points mean you earned 2,500 Surplus Points in 2022. These will be rolled over to 2023 making it easier for you to renew your DIAMOND status into 2024, because instead of 10,000 Status Points in 2023 you only need to earn 7,500 Status Points. Also earning these 7,500 Status Points is easier for you now in 2023 because as a DIAMOND member you earn 1.50 Status Points per $1 spent (unlike GOLD members who earn 1 Status Point). Therefore, $5,000 (instead of $7,500) spent will earn you 7,500 Points needed to renew your DIAMOND status into 2024. And if your stays are at hotels outside Turkey, due to the “2x Status Points” rule mentioned above, just $2,500 spent instead of $5,000 will earn you 7,500 Points.
Your membership profile screen always shows how many points you earned so far and how many more points you need to renew your status.
If you are a DIAMOND member in the current year but do not renew your DIAMOND status into the next year - your status will downgrade the next year but only by one status level, i.e. to PLATINUM, not to GOLD.
Example: You reach DIAMOND in 2023. This means you are DIAMOND for the rest of 2023 and the whole of 2024. If you do not renew your DIAMOND status into 2025, you will be PLATINUM (rather not GOLD) for the whole of 2025.

You can pay $0.20 for 1 Status Point, or spend 20 Cash Points for 1 Status Point. Extra Status Points can only be bought during December. To buy extra Status Points - please email email@example.com.
