OUR MEMBERSHIP LEVELS AND FEES
The interview is partly to assess which level of membership you would require. Joining fees are spent on marketing to maintain the quality of the members available to you. With all memberships, a monthly service fee extends the membership period indefinitely and covers the administration costs (wages rents etc. – oh! and Alun’s Migralieve tablets – thank you!). We will not recommend an inexpensive membership if we do not think it will work for you. We are more likely to suggest another introduction agency. A guide to which membership level you will require is given in the membership level details see paragraph 10. below. Our consultant will recommend the membership level you would need.
Executive Club Joining Fees
All listed memberships are lifetime memberships
or as stated below. All prices include VAT where appropriate.
