Membership Direct Debit Terms & Conditions

  • Direct Debit is a safe, secure and easy way to pay and you are protected by the Direct Debit guarantee.
  • Our Direct Debit scheme is available with our Newquay Zoo only and joint membership option. It is not available on our off-peak pass option.
  • We will always contact you to confirm the amount and frequency of payments with the payment date when the Direct Debit is set up. If there are any changes to the amount, date or frequency of your Direct Debit, we will notify you 10 working days in advance of your account being debited.
  • If an error is made in the payment of your Direct Debit, by Wild Planet Trust or your bank or building society, you are entitled to a full and immediate refund of the amount paid from your bank or building society. If you receive a refund you are not entitled to, you must pay it back when Wild Planet Trust asks you to.
  • You can choose which Direct Debit scheme you wish to sign up for, either 1 annual payment or 10 monthly instalments.
  •  All customers paying by Direct Debit agree to an initial deposit, as shown on the membership page. This can be paid by debit or credit card when purchasing your Direct Debit online. This is non refundable.
  • Wild Planet Trust will only accept one Direct Debit mandate per family group.
  • If a payment fails, we will contact you to notify you. Failed payments may result in the membership being suspended and access to the zoo will be denied until outstanding payment has been made. Any outstanding account arrears will be payable before reinstatement of any membership scheme run by Wild Planet Trust. Any late payments are subject to a £10 administration fee, payable at the time of settling the arrears.
  • If late payments are not received within 7 days, we will cancel the membership and are unable to reinstate memberships after this time.
