Members are entitled to a reduction in bed charges up to €10 per night in all huts in belonging to the ÖAV (Austrian Alpine Association) and DAV (German Alpine Club), with reductions in other huts belonging to members of the Association of Alpine Clubs of Austria (VAVÖ) plus over 70 private guesthouses and hostels.

Our members also enjoy reduced accommodation rates in all mountain huts belonging to the national mountaineering federations of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, and Switzerland.

All current members are covered by the AWS rescue and repatriation service during their membership year.

The Expedition fund enables mountaineering expeditions run by its members if it considers such expeditions to be relevant to the Club’s aims and of a worthwhile nature. This funding has been entirely donated by our members for this specific purpose. We are particularly keen to support small independent expeditions run and composed of younger members in the early stages of their mountaineering careers.

Mountaineering Equipment Suppliers offering Discounts to Club Members, offer mountaineering clothing and equipment to our members at specially discounted prices. Purely to avoid any legal liability, we are unable to provide any Club endorsement, and any sales contracts are between members and the commercial organisations concerned.

This new Facebook group is run by members, not the Club, so that they can contact each other about short notice activities, sales and other items of interest.

A selection of Members mountaineering items for sale.  Check out the Members Small Ads section.
