Busplus Club regulations

BUSPLUS Loyalty Club, run by ALSA GRUPO, S.L.U. (hereinafter AG), has been created to reward ALSA clients' loyalty. ALSA will mean the companies that use this insignia in their passenger road transport services. These Regulations enter into effect as from 1 September 2014. ALSA reserves the right to modify these Regulations and the BUSPLUS Club characteristics at any time to improve the conditions thereof. In the event of any such modifications, ALSA will notify BUSPLUS members, at least one month in advance and via both electronic mail and its webpage, regarding the new operating structure and characteristics, as well as the date as from which the modifications will be effective. Clients who do not wish to continue as BUSPLUS Club members will have to notify this within a period of one month following notification of the modifications and they may redeem the entirety of the accumulated points in that same period of time; once said deadline has elapsed they may not make any claim against ALSA for this motive. The Club will be cancelled without prior notice, any liability or application of the above provisions in the event of any force majeure circumstances or any legal impositions that prevent its continuance.

I. PURPOSE OF BUSPLUS CLUB

BUSPLUS Club awards points for the purchase of ALSA tickets. These points give the right to discounts on the purchase of ALSA tickets, as well as free tickets, as the case may be, and carry express authorisation for reception, via any means, including electronic mail, SMS or telephone, of any information regarding the Club, new features, and ALSA services and/or promotions. Likewise, the status of BUSPLUS member entitles beneficiaries to certain exclusive discounts offered by the establishments that sign up to the BUSPLUS Club.

II. CONDITIONS

BUSPLUS Club is open to any individuals over the age of 18. BUSPLUS Club membership is totally free of charge and implies knowledge and acceptance of these Regulations. To become a BUSPLUS Club member, applicants should complete the application form drawn up for this purpose and which is available at ALSA points of sale and on the website www.alsa.es.  Proof of BUSPLUS membership is provided by a national id. document [DNI] or any other legally valid equivalent document (passport, foreigner's Id. [NIE]). AG reserves the right to cancel the membership, without any prior written notice, of clients whose accounts show no movements for more than two years. Such clients will become inactive clients and their points may be cancelled, without prejudice to their right to request reactivation as BUSPLUS clients. Likewise, AG reserves the right to cancel the points account and its balance and to cancel the BUSPLUS membership of clients who infringe the rules set out in these Regulations, or who fraudulently use ALSA tickets. AG reserves the right to cancel the BUSPLUS Club at any time, giving members one month's notice, without this action giving rise to any liability for any damages that said cancellation may cause to BUSPLUS members. If the BUSPLUS members have sufficient points to exchange for tickets, they may exchange them within the aforementioned month's notice.

III. CLUB MEMBERSHIP

Following receipt of your application, which can be submitted at any ALSA point of sale or by sending the specific application form from our website, we will register you as a BUSPLUS Club member, upon which you will start to obtain points, which will be accumulated in your account.

IV. ADDITIONAL ADVANTAGES

Members may also obtain additional advantages, the characteristics and period of validity of which AG will notify via their authorised channels. These exclusive advantages may not, in any case, be accumulated with any ticket promotions.

For more information, see additional advantages and conditions on the UNO-e BUSPLUS VISA Card Application Form, available at our sales channels.

V. OBTAINING POINTS

BUSPLUS members who purchase ALSA tickets at ALSA points of sale, on the website www.alsa.es, via the telephone service no. 902422242 and the channels authorised by AG, will obtain 10 points for each €5 purchases (no rounding up will be applied under any circumstances). AG reserves the right to modify the number of points to be obtained at any given time for the purchase of ALSA tickets, modification that will be notified beforehand at the ALSA points of sale and on the website www.alsa.es. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, AG will inform BUSPLUS members regarding special promotions to obtain extra points, addressed, in particular, to BUSPLUS VISA Card members who acquire tickets using this card. The points are obtained at the time the ALSA tickets are acquired, presenting the member's DNI or any other legally valid equivalent document that provides proof of identity at the ALSA points of sale or the channels authorised by AG. The points will be assigned automatically in the member's account. However, in the case of tickets purchased via the website www.alsa.es and the telephone service no. 902422242 (exclusively for journeys authorised by ALSA) the points will be entered in their account once the corresponding charge has been posted in the bank account of the member that is the holder of the finance card used. Nevertheless, AG declines all responsibility for any delay that could arise in the operation's accountancy due to circumstances beyond AG's control that make automatic operation capture impossible. AG reserves the right to cancel any points posted erroneously in members' accounts. The points expire after 24 months as from the day following that in which they were obtained. Cancellation of tickets purchased will result in elimination of the points obtained for the purchase of the tickets in question.

VI. HOW TO SEE YOUR POINTS BALANCE

BUSPLUS Club members can view their points balance on the website www.alsa.es.

VII. POINTS EXCHANGE

Points may only be exchanged within the Club structure and for the corresponding ALSA tickets. Under no circumstances may points be transferred or exchanged for cash. Members may exchange accumulated points for discounts on the price of the ALSA ticket they purchase; the number of points necessary to obtain the aforementioned discounts will be determined, in each case, based on the itinerary and the class of service in question. Members may also exchange their points for ALSA tickets (subject to seat availability) at ALSA points of sale, as well as on the website www.alsa.es and other alternative channels that ALSA may, as appropriate, make available to members. The member's DNI or equivalent document will be requested, together with the details of the required journey. These tickets may not be modified or cancelled once they have been requested. AG will deduct the points corresponding to the ALSA tickets requested from the member's account as soon as the BUSPLUS Department receives the exchange request.
