How do I claim my discount?

The only way to claim a Defence discount is to use the website and enter the following codes when prompted in the “Voucher” section during the booking process, as well as presenting the card when you arrive at Balmaha Lodges to check in:

For January to April reservations enter DEFENCE1

For October to December reservations enter DEFENCE2

Unfortunately, we are unable to apply the Defence discount to bookings taken over the phone or through third party sites such as or Airbnb.

You must state your Defence (MOD90) card number within the additional information section, otherwise your reservation will not be processed further.


When using both offer codes and while making a reservation using our online booking system only, the Defence cardholder is entitled to the above discounts on tariff rates for a 2 night booking on their dates. This is subject to successful payment of a 30% deposit being paid and the full balance being paid no later than 14 days before your reservation begins, as well as the Defence (MOD90) card being presented upon the initial check-in process -provided the booking falls between the 1st of January and the 30th of April or 01st October and 20th December respectively. If the Card is not presented, the discount is not applied and the difference in rate is deducted from your security deposit. These offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other special offer and apply to new reservations only. The discount code cannot be retroactively applied to active reservations nor can this be applied after a reservation is made prior to these offers going live from 04/01/2023.

Only one discount card is permitted per reservation, whether on individual reservations or on a group basis.

A minimum of two night stays are required to obtain these discount offers.
