Become a Full Member

You can attend any event as a Pay As You Go Member

But upgrade to Full Membership and you'll benefit from so much more:

  1. Free access to walks and cycling events
    (when Pay as You Go Members pay £10 per event)
  2. Lower prices on hostel and camping events
    (for example, £20 less than the price for Pay As You Go Members for two-night events)
  3. Access to Early Bird discounts
    (most paid events have a further discount for Full Members when they are amongst the first people to book onto them)
  4. Savings on everything you buy at our retail partners, including:
  • 15% off at Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock, runnersneed and digital OrdnanceSurvey Maps subscriptions
  • 10% off at Cycle Surgery, Berghaus, GoApe!, individual overnight YHA stays and OrdnanceSurvey paper maps
  • 50% off annual YHA membership
  • 20% off at Cicerone guide books

Annual membership normally costs £55.00 but is available at the concession price of £10.00, which then gives you access to our lowest, concession prices on many of our paid events.

Direct Debit

Alternatively you can arrange to pay for your Full Membership by Direct Debit instead, and as well as all the benefits of being a Full Member you'll then also get:

  • your first year of membership at half price
  • an OutdoorLads branded performance t-shirt
  • an OutoorLads car sticker

Paying for your OutdoorLads Membership by Direct Debit gives you the peace of mind that your Membership won't have expired without you realising it, as your Membership automatically renews each year without any effort from you.

If you decide to pay by Direct Debit, please allow us the short time it takes to manually process your application and Direct Debit mandate. As soon as this is done, you will see that you will have been registered as a Full Member on your MY ACCOUNT page.

The Direct Debit option is not available if you decide instead to apply for annual membership at the concession price.

The half price (for one year) offer, t-shirt and car sticker are only available the first time you sign up to pay your OutdoorLads annual membership by Direct Debit.

The half price discount is applied to the first payment made by Direct Debit, subsequent payments are at the standard membership price in place at the time. The price of membership may increase from time to time.

Direct Debit payments are processed on the 1st of the month or the next working day and you will receive email confirmation from us regarding your payment plan and the date on which payment will be taken. We aim to process Direct Debit requests within 2 working days.
