YHA's electronic membership card: Save the planet while you save cash!

YHA membership means discounts on everything from concert tickets to cinemas to skydiving. It also means you can stay in any YHA in Australia AND any Hostelling International (HI) hostel around the world. If you’ve stayed in an Australian YHA in the last year, you're now a member as it was included in your night's stay!

It gets better - we now have an electronic membership card that will ensure you’re never out and about without it, so won’t miss out on claiming these sweet benefits when you need them. Who has room in their wallet for all those pesky cards anyway?!

Besides being super convenient, the electronic membership card is one of the many ways we are reducing our impact on the environment by minimising plastic use. You can read more about our sustainability efforts here.

To access your card, create a free account at MyYHA where you can download your electronic membership card and store it on your phone – it will be your best friend as you explore Australia and the world.

You can also download our brand spankin’ new YHA Australia App, where your card is conveniently stored.

If you haven’t stayed with us in the last year, no worries! After your next stay, you will receive an email from us inviting you to set up your MyYHA account, and you can download your card.

If you're travelling the world and don't have time to stay with us, you can pay a one-off fee of $15 to get your card and you're all set!

Still have a plastic card? You can register online and join the plastic-free party.

Sustainability is one of our top priorities at YHA, so it will not be possible to request a plastic card once our existing stock runs out, which will be sometime in 2019. If you would still like a plastic card, email as soon as possible.

Our electronic membership card is eco-friendly, convenient and is with you always - think green and download your card today!
