we enhance our service while reducing waiting-times. Thanks to the new “Cashless Payment System” and the easy and secure way to use it you will have more time to enjoy your experience at the Spielberg. From the 1st of April you don’t need cash anymore, but pay by using your “cashless-card” at the whole area – with a few exceptions.
Please note: Outside of our events you can still pay by using cash, atm- or credit-cards in all our hotels and restaurants and at the Red Bull Ring. During events like the “Formula 1 Grand Prix von Österreich 2017” and the “NeroGiardini Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich” only the “Cashless Payment System” will be available for payments inside the event-area.
The newly introduced „Cashless Payment System“ will enhance your experience while visiting the Spielberg with an easy and secure way to pay. From now you will only be able to pay cashless on the whole area by using a “cashless-card”. It will not be possible to bay cash anymore – with a few exceptions.
Here we will describe all ways of using the new system. Should you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The technology is called “RFID”. RFID stands for “radio frequency identification”. This technology used for cashless payment systems and access-control – among other uses.
The “cashless-card” is an RFID-medium that is first loaded with cash, atm- or credit-card on site and can from then on be used to pay, while the credit on the card is reduced by the consumed amount each time. This system is used at major events to reduce cash-handling and waiting-times and it guarantees transparency and security. Another advantage: It complies with Austrian laws regarding cash-registers by providing receipts of all transactions online.
State-of-the-art chip-technology combined and the generally high level of encryption makes the system a very secure way to pay. Offline-compatibility further enhances stability of the system.
By using the cashless-card it becomes possible to pay without using cash on site. The credit-card-sized card has an RFID-chip and is loaded on site. Each card has a uniqe number called UID-number. By using that number on the website “spielberg.eventportal.io” access to all receipts from all payments is possible. Remaining credit can also be transferred by using this website.
All year round: The “cashless-card” can be obtained on site at the “Welcome Center” and in all hotels and restaurants affiliated with the Projekt Spielberg (Hotel Steirerschlössl, Landhotel Schönberghof, Hotel G‘Schlössl Murtal, Hotel Hofwirt und im Hotel Schloss Gabelhofen) during regular opening hours.
The card can be loaded on site anytime and how often you want at each of the stations by using cash, atm- or credit-cards. During events those stations will be on site. Outside of events they can be found in the “Welcome Center” and all hotels and restaurants affiliated with the Projekt Spielberg (Hotel Steirerschlössl, Landhotel Schönberghof, Hotel G‘Schlössl Murtal, Hotel Hofwirt und im Hotel Schloss Gabelhofen).
The “cashless-card” and loading it is free of charge. When you first get your card a deposit of € 3,- will be blocked on your card. By returning the card on site your credit and the deposit will be returned.
