Direct Debit offer

Direct Debit (DD) is the simplest and most convenient way to pay your annual GA membership subscription. This payment method allows your membership to be renewed automatically every year. We will provide you with plenty of notice before we take money from your account and you can cancel the DD instruction for your next subscription renewal at any time. You can choose to pay your subscription by monthly or annual DD.

  • Monthly will spread the cost of your annual subscription over 12 equal monthly instalments (excludes entry level membership).
  • A single annual DD payment will save money as a discount of approximately 3% is applied to our current rates (excludes entry level membership).

Simply tick the DD payment option on the second page of the downloadable membership form indicating your preferred payment frequency, complete the accompanying DD instruction and return it to the GA along with rest of your membership application form to the GA by post or email (we require a hard copy of your signed DD instruction form, or an e-copy if it includes an original scanned signiture).
