Affiliate Clubs Worldwide

Unlock the doors to over 300 of the finest clubs worldwide and make use of their facilities as you would your own club's. Travel knowing you can dine, entertain and stay at fellow clubs that have been vetted and uphold the most discerning service standards.

There are two types of affiliations - a direct affiliation between the two clubs, and an affiliation through a broader network of clubs called the International Associate Clubs (IAC). UCT members have access to both.

AFFILIATE CLUBS including the IAC affiliation 2020


There are several advantages of making use of the affiliates. The first is that you may not know the country or city well, and don’t want to go wrong; with an affiliate you are assured that the standard is one that you will feel comfortable with. The second is the cost; there are many members who concur that they cover the cost of their UCT annual dues simply by using affiliates a few times a year. Clubs in general charge well under local hotel rates as most operate as not-for-profits and exist for the benefit of their membership – and ours once we have the benefit of reciprocity.

Steps for Booking:

  1. Contact the club you wish to visit and make your reservation.
  2. Contact our front desk staff and request a letter of introduction (or an IAC card if they are in the IAC network) by using the auto form link above or emailing and noting the name of the club you will be visiting, the dates of your visit and any confirmation number you are given as a reference. Letters are generally good for thirty days, and they confirm that you are a member in good standing.  Please request a copy of the letter of introduction that the front desk will send to the affiliate, since it is always safer to have the introduction on your person when you walk through the door just in case. It is also wise to ask that your confirmation number be referenced in the introduction letter - most clubs will provide some type of confirmation code when you make your booking. Note that arriving at an affiliate without a letter of introduction will likely result in being turned away.

Use of any affiliate is subject to the rules of the host club, most of whom will require that you settle your account before departure. Each club has its own dress code and rules of conduct. Please ensure that you refer to their website for details in advance.
