Benefits for you when you are a member of

the American Club of the Riviera

The Governors and Officers of the American Club of the Riviera have sought out several benefits for you. You can partake of all or any of the following, as often as you wish – and we will be adding to these from time to time.

  • We are proud members of the Association of American Clubs.  Wherever and whenever you travel throughout the world, you can contact the local American Club.  Member prices and facilities will be offered to you.
  • We are associated with the Danish club of the Riviera region and offer you their events at their own member prices. (Danish Only)
  • We are associated with the Jeune Chambre Economique Métropole Niçoise (JCEMN), and ACR members can attend their training and networking events (primarily in French) at member prices:
  • Priority members’ booking for our events – particularly relevant if numbers are limited. For selected events we subsidise the cost of our events for members. And, of course, cheaper member prices for ALL our own events.
  • We have negotiated discounts of 15% on all treatments and services (except food & beverages, the shop and sports coaching) at the Thermes Marins in Cannes whenever you show your ‘American Club of the Riviera’ membership card.  Use your special code: AMERICANRIV15 on their website :  You can buy a gift certificate for a family member or friend with your discount and it will be usable for up to one year. There are special monthly offers too.  You can also have special combined treatments and access to their well-being area is always included (Seawater interior/exterior swimming pool; Jacuzzi; sauna; caldarium; hammam, multi-sensory shower; relaxation area indoors or outdoors on a large terrace with wonderful sea views).  We understand that people come from far and near to use this wonderful spa – including from Monaco!  Do try it – it is marvellous for both men and women. A couple of our members had a wonderful long stay there in October 2014, booked again for October 2015 and will go each year.  They recommend the hotel and spa staff highly. Others go regularly.  Phone 0492 99 50 10 for information and reservations.

  • Currency transfers: We have negotiated preferential rates from one of the best currency transfer companies for our members.  Currencies Direct transfers will save you between 3 – 5% compared to your bank.  Whether you are buying/selling a property, redecorating, transferring monthly pensions, mortgages or living expenses, making international transfers with your bank can be very expensive.  The old days of speaking with your trusted bank Rep or clicking a button online to transfer your funds internationally are long gone.  Currencies Direct offer an exceptional one-to-one service.
