How to add your membership to the booking system

You can add your membership to your booking account when you:

  • create an account
  • log in and edit your account.

For both options, you need to upload supporting documentation, normally your organisation's membership card.

Discounts will be applied automatically to your purchases made with your account once we verify your membership documentation and update your account.

Discounts can not be retrospectively applied to bookings. 

Verification can take up to three working days if the correct information is supplied.

Not all bookable huts and campsites offer discounts or allow Passes to be used as a form of payment on them. 

If you're entitled to discounts on any booking or purchase it will be automatically applied at the time of purchase. Passes can not be applied to bookings already made.
