What is an affiliate?

Affiliates are businesses, organisations, events or activities that officially register to support the Companion Card Program.

Affiliates agree to abide by the ACT Companion Card Program Affiliate Terms and Conditions. This includes agreeing to:

  • issue a minimum of one companion ticket at no charge to cardholders
  • accept a Companion Card issued in any Australian State or Territory
  • display the Companion Card logo in a prominent position at their business premises or ticketing outlet
  • have their business details listed on the ACT Companion Card Program website

It is important to note that under existing anti-discrimination legislation the overall responsibility for ensuring equal access to facilities, information and services remains with the venue and activity owners and operators.

Affiliation with the Companion Card Program is free.

Any costs associated with providing a companion ticket are the responsibility of the Business Affiliate.

Acceptance of the Companion Card does not indicate that the venue or activity is accessible. Cardholders are advised to check accessibility with the Affiliate before booking tickets.
