Couple Memberships

Our range of couples memberships offer a significant discount over the equivalent individual memberships and have the added bonus of allowing both memberships to be managed through a single annual payment.

Couple memberships are available to two people living at the same address. You will each receive an individual membership card and each have your own account on our website community, but will only receive one magazine and other mailings.

Step 1: Purchase your Couples membership

The first step is to purchase a couples membership package. Please follow the steps above for an individual membership, but make sure to select one of the 'couple' membership packages. You can select the package that corresponds to the higher of your two ages - for example if one of you is aged 63 and the other 67, you can select the 'couples aged 65 - 79' package. At this stage you will be asked to enter the details of the first person on the membership form. We will add the partner details below.

Step 2: Login to your new account

Once you have purchased a couples membership you will be invited to login to your new account.

Step 3: Create your partner's account.

Once you have logged-in to your new account you will be able to add and edit your own personal details as well as view your payments and manage your renewals. If you have successfully purchased a couples membership you will see a button labeled 'family members'. Click on this button...

... and then you will be able to add your partner's details.

Step 4: Update your Partner's details

Once you have created your partner's account he/she can then login to their own account and enter their personal details.

Having one of our couple memberships is not only good value for money but it enables you to manage your memberships through a single payment whilst having the freedom and flexibility of having your own online accounts and separate access to our oline community.
