You can opt to pay for all membership types, bar Day Pass Membership, by a one-off Direct Debit payment. This payment will be taken once and gives you the benefit of a reduced membership fee; for example, in the case of a new Full Membership you would pay £135 instead of £150 if purchasing via the office. Your payment will then continue to be taken automatically on an annual basis, unless you cancel it.
Spread Direct Debit
Paying by Spread Direct Debit gives Full Members the option to pay their membership fee in four equal payments: one in January, February, March and April. Membership will start on the 1 January, so when taking out membership on Spread Direct Debit for the first time, members will pay a pro-rata rate for the months left to the end of December. Renewals will then be spread over the first four months of every year, unless you cancel the spread Direct Debit.
Payment by spread Direct Debit can only be chosen once. If your membership then lapses for any reason, you will only be able to renew via the usual one-off payment Direct Debit option or by cheque/credit/debit card.
Cancelling spread Direct Debit payments must be done by mid December each year, and you can either cancel the payments through us or through your bank.
