The Merlin Annual Pass is once again being offered to customers via a direct debit option known as ‘Monthly Membership’.
A similar scheme was launched in the summer of 2013, but was withdrawn to new customers in February the following year for unspecified reasons.
The new monthly memberships feature a one-off joining fee followed by regular monthly payments.
- ‘Standard’ membership costs £29.99 initially, plus £8.99 per month. The total for a year equates to £137.87.
- ‘Premium’ membership costs £34.99 initially, plus £11.99 per month. The total for a year equates to £178.87.
The total cost per year for each type of membership is less than that of the Standard and Premium annual passes at £179 and £229 respectively.
Merlin has said it will hold a sale for annual pass renewals in the New Year, following an earlier-than-usual sale on new annual passes last month.
