Membership Terms and Conditions

The following conditions work in conjunction with Crag Rats BCN’s main Terms and Conditions

Paying for your Membership

The payment will come out of your bank on the same day of each month on which the account started.

If a payment is returned by your bank unpaid, we have the right under BACS regulations to re-present a request for this payment at any point without notice but within one month of the original charge.

 Membership Holidays – ‘Freezing Your Membership’

As a benefit to membership, we offer the opportunity to temporarily suspend or ‘freeze’ your membership in the event of prolonged absence such as serious illness or injury. This benefit is for monthly memberships only as we cannot hold excursion or course spaces open. This benefit is for full calendar months only and available for a minimum of 1 calendar month with no expiration date. No payments will be taken from your account during this period.

Freezes can only commence after the first payment has been taken.  To activate this benefit, please contact the Membership Co-ordinator at Crag Rats BCN via email at [email protected] by 20th of the month to be effective the 1st of the following month, as you will need to sign to agree to the term of the freeze.

When you choose to end of the ‘frozen period’ your monthly payments will revert to the appropriate fee automatically, the signed agreement being your advance notice of the change.

Change of Details

Should your personal details change, please notify us immediately. The details we hold for you will be used to communicate electronically or by letter with you as per BACs regulations. You can notify us by emailing [email protected].


Prices may be reviewed at any point during your membership and we undertake to provide at least 3 working days notice of any price change either by email where this exists, or by post.

Cancelling your Direct Debit Membership

Cancellations can only be made after the second monthly payment has been received. From that point cancellations can be made with immediate effect.

If your booking was not included in your membership and paid for, you will be required to contact Crag Rats BCN to cancel and arrange either a refund or change of session.

Activity/classes paid for outside of your membership can not be refunded via the website or app.

If you cancel within 4 hours of the start time for the booked class or activity, you may be subject to a penalty charge of the full cost of the session where we are unable to fill your place. Where we need to change or cancel a class or activity we will aim to notify you within the same period.

Training and fitness sessions

All members may join the fitness and training sessions for no extra charge. This excludes members holding the FREE membership. Members holding a FREE membership may still attend these sessions but an charge of €8 will be implemented. There may be a limit on the number of places available for these sessions and Crag Rats BCN withholds the right to refuse members access if a session is full.

Crag Rats BCN withholds the right to cancel these sessions at anytime with no prior notice to members. Crag Rats BCN withholds the right to deny access to the sessions to a member for any reason.
