In restaurants, shops, tours, activities etc, the card must be presented prior to initiating any purchase or service. Otherwise, the partner establishment may not extend any discount.
Discount applies only on standard published rates, and not on any special, promotional or negotiated rates. For hotel bookings, the eCard holder must get a prior email from the hotel confirming the discount and the rate on which discount applies.
The discount will be given only after the card holder avails the services and at the time of final bill settlement.
