I am going to work away for 4-12 weeks, unknown yet, so I figured it is worth cancelling/freezing my £50 a month membership at Virgin Active Gym.
I went in today but got fobbed off with a cut off date being the 17th, and that it's not possible to do again until september.
HERE IS THE PAGE:: What’s a membership freeze and how do I get it?
Going on holiday? Super busy at work? Picked up an injury? We know it isn’t always possible to get down to the club, so we offer an option to put your membership on hold – a freeze. You pay a minimal membership, so you won’t be able to use the club while the freeze is on, and when you’re ready, you simply reactivate and carry on.
You can freeze your membership for up to 3 months at a time. Just fill in a ‘Change of Circumstance’ form at reception, email your club’s member services department or ask for a freeze through the member’s lounge on our website. Just make sure it’s before the 17th of the month to give us time to process your request.
Sounds good, what’s the catch?
There isn’t one. The nearest is that all our freezes are from the 1st of each month (we can’t do a freeze from the 15th to the 15th, for example) and if you’re on a contracted membership, your frozen months won’t count towards it.http://www.virginactive.co.uk/en/contact
