Bannatynes cancellation policy


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me.


I took out a membership for my local bannatynes gym for the summer holidays as I was working a summer job. I’d accidentally taken out a 12 month contract rather than paying monthly (my mistake).


I am now moving to Glasgow for university and will be a full time student with no income.


As per Bannatynes terms and conditions you are able to leave the contract if your financial situation changes. It also says if you are relocating and there is not a practical gym nearby that this would also be reason to leave your contract.


However they failed to mention that if there is a gym 10 miles within your relocation that this does not count (received this info in a reply does not state in T&Cs) despite the closest gym being a 2 hour walk from my university!!!!


Can someone please let me know if I have a leg to stand on with this one as I will


physically be unable to afford the membership as a student and am also not willing to walk 2 hours to use it.


Thanks so much

Nothing they nor anyone can do to you.


From the date you informed them you wish to cancel, allow one more dd. Then cancel their dd.


Ive moved you to the gyn forum

Plenty of bannantynes threads here to read.

Use our right side red top banner search

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi BK and welcome to CAG


Relocation to Uni is a valid reason to cancel and you cannot be held to the agreement  with a 2 hour walk to the nearest gym in Scotland.


Cancel in writing (email or letter so you have proof) and as DX said, allow one more DD to be taken from when you gave notice then cancel the DD mandate yourself via your bank.


Will you still hear if you get post from the gym about the m/ship sent to your old address ?

We could do with some help from you
