Keep on hostelling
If your membership card recently expired or is about to, you don't even need to interrupt the good times, or suddenly resign yourself to a life of stale hotels and run-of-the-mill concierges. For only $25 you can renew your card easily online. This saves you $10 off the regular rate. Your new card will arrive in the mail ? so it's a good idea to renew before your current card actually expires.
Keep on hostelling...forever
Better yet, if you want to avoid the heartache of expiration dates, you can upgrade your adult membership to a lifetime membership for only $140. This gets you $35 off the normal life membership rate. You'll never have to renew for the rest of your life.
If you're a junior member, don't let the thrill of turning 18 lead to a lapse in your membership. Renew or upgrade your card before your birthday party. If you're the parent of a new 18-year-old, HI memberships are a great birthday gift, and nothing says "You're an adult now, go see the world", like an HI membership. Win win.
