How does gift membership work?

After purchase, you’ll be sent a special gift membership voucher within 10 days. This will include an activation form with a space to include a special message.

You can alternatively opt to have this sent directly to the lucky recipient - simply email [email protected] so we know where to send it.  

The recipient can activate their membership at any point within 12 months of the purchase date.

The membership would then begin on the day it is activated, and will run for 12 months from that date.

They can do this by emailing [email protected] or returning the voucher and the form to which it is attached to the Freepost address provided. 

If you would like something to print out for the recipient while waiting for the gift pack to arrive - you can download a print out here.
