Monthly Direct Debit payment terms and conditions

Your membership

You agree to take out the selected National Trust membership for one year.

We will write to you shortly before the end of your membership year and supply you with a new
membership card for the following year. You will be given the opportunity to tell us if you do not
want to renew your membership for the following year.

Your membership fee

Your membership fee is payable in instalments, which (unless the section below on the failure to pay your membership fee applies) only becomes due on a monthly basis as your annual membership progresses.

Your instalment amounts and the dates on which they become payable will be set out in the payment schedule, which we will send you as part of your membership welcome or renewal letter.

Failure to pay your membership fee

If you fail to pay the National Trust any instalment due within seven days of the date set out in the
payment schedule, we will write to you and give you the opportunity to either pay that instalment,
or pay all instalments due for the remainder of your membership year, by alternative means.

If you then fail to pay the relevant amount due by the required date, we will write to you again to
ask you to pay all instalments due for the remainder of your membership year.

Unfortunately, if you then fail to pay this amount by the required date your National Trust
membership will immediately be closed.

Please note that these provisions will not apply if your failure to pay is due to bank or National
Trust error.
