JOIN NOW ONLINE - INSTANT ACCESS
To join online please click the following join now button below. YOU CAN MAKE PAYMENT BY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD OR PAYPAL ACCOUNT-WHEN YOU PROCEED TO THE PAYPAL PAGE If you do not either wish to create a PayPal account or prefer to use your normal credit/debit card then proceed through the process avoiding the option for a PayPal Account choosing your credit/debit card. If you have a problem then do contact us. You may also e mail membership via the contact page and ask for a PayPal invoice to pay by credit card having filled in the profile, please quote your allocated membership number.
Do be aware that by paying via PayPal your credit/debit card details are retained by PayPal and held to pay the subscription again in 12 months time under their subscription scheme, unless you cancel that option. If you leave it in place and your card details expire before renewal then you will receive a notice from PayPal to the effect that your 'Subscription has been cancelled'. Such an e mail is from PayPal and merely tells you this as your card details have expired and your next auto renewal has been cancelled. Your membership remains intact until expiry.
Once payment is received we will create your membership instantly giving you access to all areas of the members only section. We will then send your welcome information by post. Subscriptions are on a rolling basis. If you pay by PayPal please be aware that they will automatically set up an annual subscription payment 12 months hence which removes the need for you to remember to renew your subscription each year. However, you will need to cancel the arrangement if you do not want that to happen. Join Veteran Vespa Club Online
