How to pay your membership fee

Direct Debit

If you have a UK bank account, you can pay by a single or monthly direct debit. The majority of our eligible members find this the most convenient way to pay.

Credit/Debit Card

You can pay by card online via the member dashboard.

Other Payment Methods

We encourage our members to pay by Direct Debit or credit/debit cards, but you can still pay your subscription fees offline. Payments done via cheque, bank transfer and BACS require more time to be processed and you may not have access to your benefits during that time.

Claim Tax Back

If you live in the United Kingdom, your annual subscription is an allowable deduction for Income Tax purposes. You can login to your dashboard and download a report from the My Receipts page.
