($.01 PAR VALUE PER SHARE)
The 1,498,888 shares (the "Shares") of common stock, $.01 par
value per share ("Common Stock"), of CUC International Inc., a
Delaware corporation ("CUC" or the "Company"), may be offered for sale
from time to time by and for the account of certain stockholders of
the Company (the "Selling Stockholders"). See "Selling Stockholders."
The Selling Stockholders acquired the Shares in connection with the
merger of Fresh Air Acquisition Corp., a Minnesota corporation and a
direct, wholly owned subsidiary of the Company ("Merger Sub"), with
and into North American Outdoor Group, Inc., a Minnesota corporation
("NAOG"), pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated August
17, 1995, as amended on September 1, 1995, by and among the Company,
Merger Sub and NAOG (the "Merger Agreement"). The Company is
registering the Shares as required by an Investment and Registration
Rights Agreement, dated September 18, 1995, by and among the Company
and the former NAOG stockholders (the "Registration Rights
Agreement"). The Company will not receive any of the proceeds from
the sale of the Shares by the Selling Stockholders, but has agreed to
bear all the expenses of registration of the Shares. See "Plan of

dealers on terms to be determined at the time of sale. To the extent
required, the names of any agents or broker-dealers, and applicable
commissions or discounts and any other required information with
respect to any particular offer, will be set forth in an accompanying
Prospectus Supplement. See "Plan of Distribution."
The Selling Stockholders and any agents or broker-dealers that
participate with the Selling Stockholders in the distribution of the
Shares may be deemed to be "underwriters" within the meaning of the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and, in
such event, any commissions received by them and any profit on the
resale of the Shares may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or
discounts under the Securities Act. See "Plan of Distribution" herein
for a description of certain indemnification arrangements among the
Company and the Selling Stockholders.

The Company is a membership-based consumer services company. The
Company currently provides approximately 38 million consumers with
access to a variety of services. The Company operates in one business
segment, providing these services as individual, wholesale or discount
coupon program memberships ("Memberships"). These Memberships include
such components as shopping, travel, auto, dining, home improvement,
vacation exchange, credit card and checking account enhancement
packages, financial products and discount coupon programs. The
Company also administers insurance package programs which are
generally combined with discount shopping and travel and marketed
primarily through financial institutions. The Company believes it is
the leading provider of membership-based consumer services of these
types in the United States. The Company's activities are conducted
principally through its Comp-U-Card division and certain of the
Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries, FISI* Madison Financial
Corporation, Benefit Consultants, Inc., Interval International Inc.
and Entertainment Publications, Inc.
The Company derives its revenues principally from membership
fees. Membership fees vary depending upon the particular membership
program, and annual fees to consumers generally range from $6 to $250
per year. Most of the Company's memberships are for one-year
renewable terms, and members are generally entitled to unlimited use
during the membership period of the service for which the member has
subscribed. Members generally may cancel their membership and obtain
a full refund at any point during the membership term.
For a more detailed description of the business of the Company,
see the description set forth in the Company's Annual Report on Form
10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 1995, which is incorporated
herein by reference.
The Company's executive offices are located at 707 Summer Street,
Stamford, Connecticut 06901, and its telephone number is (203) 324-
In September 1995, the Company effected a merger of Merger Sub
and NAOG (the "Merger") pursuant to the Merger Agreement. The
acquisition was accounted for as a pooling-of-interests. NAOG owns
one of the largest private, for-profit hunting and general interest
fishing membership organizations in America, the North American
Hunting Club and the North American Fishing Club. In addition, NAOG
owns a third club, the Handyman Club of America. The Company believes
that the Merger enhances the Company's overall competitiveness by
making available to it new products and new product lines.
USE OF PROCEEDS
The Company will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of
the Shares. All of the proceeds from the sale of the Shares will be
received by the Selling Stockholders.
The Selling Stockholders are former NAOG shareholders. The
Shares were acquired by the Selling Stockholders in connection with
the Merger. The following table provides the names and the number of
shares of Common Stock owned by each Selling Stockholder. Since the
Selling Stockholders may sell all, some or none of their Shares, no
estimate can be made of the aggregate number of Shares that are to be
offered hereby or that will be owned by each Selling Stockholder upon
completion of the offering to which this Prospectus relates.
The Shares offered by this Prospectus may be offered from time to
time by the Selling Stockholders named below:
Common Stock, par value $.01 per share 1,498,888 $35.3125 $52,929,482 $18,252.00
(1) Estimated solely for the purpose of calculating the registration fee pursuant to Rule 457(c) under the Securities
Act of 1933. Based upon the average of the high and low sales prices of the Company's Common Stock as reported by
the New York Stock Exchange on October 2, 1995.
Selling Stockholder Common Stock
Two of the Selling Stockholders, Steven F. Burke and John J.
Burke, have entered into employment agreements with NAOG, each dated
as of August 17, 1995.
PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
The Selling Stockholders have advised the Company that the Shares
may be sold from time to time by the Selling Stockholders, or their
transferees, on the New York Stock Exchange or any national securities
exchange or automated interdealer quotation system on which shares of
Common Stock are then listed, or through negotiated transactions or
otherwise. The Shares will not be sold in an underwritten public
offering. The Shares will be
sold at prices and on terms then prevailing, at prices related
to the then-current market price, or at negotiated prices.
The Selling Stockholders may effect sales of the Shares directly
or by or through agents, brokers or dealers and the Shares may be
sold by one or more of the following methods: (a) ordinary brokerage
transactions, (b) purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale
by such broker-dealer for its own account pursuant to this Prospectus,
and (c) in "block" sales. At the time a particular offer is made,
a Prospectus Supplement, if required, will be distributed that sets
forth the name or names of agents or broker-dealers, any commissions
and other terms constituting compensation and any other required
information. In effecting sales, broker-dealers engaged by any Selling
Stockholder and/or the purchasers of the Shares may arrange for other
broker-dealers to participate. Broker-dealers will receive commissions,
concessions or discounts from the Selling Stockholder and/or the
purchasers of the Shares in amounts to be negotiated prior to the sale.
Sales will be made only through broker-dealers registered as such in
a subject jurisdiction or in transactions exempt from such registration.
The Company is required under the Registration Rights Agreement
to comply with the requirements of Rule 144(c) under the Securities
Act, as such Rule may be amended from time to time (or any similar
rule or regulation hereafter adopted by the Commission), regarding the
availability of current public information to the extent required to
enable the Selling Stockholders to sell Shares without registration
under the Securities Act pursuant to Rule 144 (or any similar rule or
In offering the Shares covered by this Prospectus, the Selling
Stockholders and any brokers, dealers or agents who participate in a
sale of the Shares by the Selling Stockholders may be considered
"underwriters" within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities
Act, and the compensation of any broker/dealers may be deemed to be
underwriting discounts and commissions.
As required by the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company has
filed the Registration Statement, of which this Prospectus forms a
part, with respect to the sale of the Shares. CUC has agreed to use
its best efforts to keep the Registration Statement current and
effective for a period commencing on the effective date of the
Registration Statement and terminating twenty-four months after the
Registration Statement is filed with the Commission.
The Company will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of
the Shares by the Selling Stockholders. The Company will bear all of
the costs of registering the Shares under the Securities Act.
Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the
Company and the Selling Stockholders have agreed to indemnify each
other and certain other parties for certain liabilities, including
liabilities under the Securities Act, in connection with the
registration of the Shares.
The legality of the Shares will be passed upon for the Company by
Robert Tucker, Corporate Secretary.
The consolidated financial statements of CUC appearing in the
Company's Annual Report (Form 10-K) for the year ended January 31,
1995, have been audited by Ernst & Young LLP, independent auditors, as
set forth in their report thereon included therein and incorporated
herein by reference. Such consolidated financial statements are
incorporated herein by reference in reliance upon such report given
upon the authority of such firm as experts in accounting and auditing.
With respect to the unaudited condensed consolidated interim
financial information for the three-month periods ended April 30, 1995
and 1994 and the three and six month periods ended July 31, 1995 and
1994, incorporated by reference in this Prospectus, Ernst & Young LLP
have reported that they have applied limited procedures in accordance
with professional standards for a review of such information.
However, their separate report, included in the Company's Quarterly
Report on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended April 30, 1995 and July 31,
1995, incorporated herein by reference, states that they did not audit
and they do not express an opinion on that interim financial
information. Accordingly, the degree of reliance on their report on
such information should be restricted in light of the limited nature
of the review procedures applied. The independent auditors are not
subject to the liability provisions of Section 11 of the Securities
Act for their report on the unaudited interim financial information
because that report is not a "report" or a "part" of the Registration
Statement prepared or certified by the auditors within the meaning of
Section 7 and 11 of the Securities Act.
No dealer, salesperson or other
individual has been authorized to 1,498,888 SHARES
give any information or to make
any representation not contained
in this Prospectus and, if given
or made, such information or
representation must not be relied
upon as having been authorized by
the Company or any Selling CUC INTERNATIONAL INC.
Stockholder. This Prospectus does
not constitute an offer to sell or
a solicitation of an offer to buy
the securities offered hereby in
any jurisdiction or to any person
to whom it is unlawful to make
such offer or solicitation.
Neither the delivery of this
Prospectus nor any sale made
hereunder shall, under any
circumstances, create any
implication that the information
contained herein is correct as of
any date subsequent to the date COMMON STOCK
hereof. ($.01 PAR VALUE PER SHARE)

ITEM 15. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS
Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law empowers a
Delaware corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or
is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or
completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal,
administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the
right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that such person is or
was a director, officer, employee or agent of such corporation or is
or was serving at the request of such corporation as a director,
officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint
venture, trust or other enterprise. The indemnity may include
expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts
paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in
connection with such action, suit or proceeding, provided that such
person acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably
believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the
corporation and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding,
had no reasonable cause to believe such person's conduct was unlawful.
A Delaware corporation may indemnify directors, officers, employees
and other agents of such corporation in an action by or in the right
of the corporation under the same conditions, except that no
indemnification is permitted without judicial approval if the person
to be indemnified has been adjudged to be liable to the corporation.
Where a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation is
successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action,
suit or proceeding referred to above or in defense of any claim, issue
or matter therein, the corporation must indemnify such person against
the expenses (including attorneys' fees) which he or she actually and
reasonably incurred in connection therewith.
The registrant's By-Laws contains provisions that provide for
indemnification of officers and directors and their heirs and
distributees to the full extent permitted by, and in the manner
permissible under, the General Corporation Law of the State of
As permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the General Corporation Law
of the State of Delaware, the registrant's Restated Certificate of
Incorporation, as amended, contains a provision eliminating the
personal liability of a director to the registrant or its stockholders
for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director,
subject to certain exceptions.
Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Selling
Stockholders have agreed to indemnify the Company and its officers,
directors and controlling persons against certain liabilities.
The registrant maintains policies insuring its officers and
directors against certain civil liabilities, including liabilities
under the Securities Act.

ITEM 17. UNDERTAKINGS
The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:
1. To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being
made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement to
include any material information with respect to the plan of
distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or
any material change to such information in the registration statement;
2. That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the
Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be
deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities
offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time
shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
3. To remove from registration by means of a post-effective
amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold
at the termination of the offering.
4. That, for purposes of determining any liability under the
Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant's annual report
pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit
plan's annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in this
Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration
statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering
of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona
fide offering thereof.
5. That, for purposes of determining any liability under the
Securities Act of 1933, the information omitted from the form of
prospectus filed as part of this Registration Statement in reliance
upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of Prospectus filed by the
registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the
Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this Registration
Statement as of the time it was declared effective.
6. That, for the purposes of determining any liability under the
Securities Act, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of
prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating
to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities
at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering
7. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the
Securities Act, may be permitted to directors, officers and
controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing
provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the
opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification
is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore,
unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against
such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses
incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the
registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or
proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling
person in connection with the securities being registered, the
registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has
been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate
jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against
public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final
adjudication of such issue.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the
Registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it
meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-3 and has duly
caused this Registration Statement to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Stamford, State
of Connecticut, on this 6th day of October, 1995.
