National membership and discounts

Are you travelling abroad? You should then check what membership benefits are offered in your country of destination. Follow the links below and these links will take you to the website of the HI's national organization that you will be visiting. It is always wise to check what kinds of discounts and benefits that are offered at the local level when traveling. Don’t forget to ask about local discounts at the hostels where you stay. 

As seen in the table below, some countries/national organizations require a HI membership for allowing you to stay at the hostel. Therefore, the prices quoted is a membership price and therefore the 10% discount "not applicable".
