  • For what it is worth the cheapest of all options is to join the National Trust of Bermuda. Family membership (2 adults + 2 kids) £25 and full access to NT UK properties - can't do better than that!

    Here we go again, this old thread churned up again, you can get a years NT for England for £38 if your a "new" customer, using DD just cancel your DD at the end of the year & join again as a "New" customer.
    No one mentioned NZ NT yet? Im assuming you dont have to live in Bermuda to join thier NT, no more than you have to live in NZ to join theirs, if you that tight/hard up.

    I bought my mum and dad a year's membership of the NT last year for about £60 (and got the 3 months' free membership offer when I paid by direct debit). I have the renewal letter now and the cost is lots more (~£90) once you include the 3 months we got free last time. Does anyone have any advice on how to get the 3 months free again? If one of my sisters bought it and set up the DD, would that work if the names on the membership cards are still the same?

    Any help much appreciated, I am on maternity leave so won't be able to afford to renew if there isn't a way to register as if it were the first time again.

    I saw the threads on the NZ and Scotland cards but would prefer to see if I can just do it with the English NT or my mum will be confused!

    What is NZ card?

    Well, after reading this thread, I've just submitted my online application to join Heritage New Zealand.

    Cost was $95 which translates to roughly £48, but the deciding factor was the fact that the Heritage NZ membership allows entry to English/Scottish NT site and properties, but also English Heritage.

    Our NT membership ran out on 31st March, and with the renewal coming in at £104, it was just too much.

    Hopefully we won't have any issues using the HNZ membership in this country... maybe I better brush up on my NZ accent, just incase! :p

    Welcome to the NZ clubbers, johnson. It's a great deal isn't it? Wouldn't be without ours. Such great value. Saved us a fortune.

    I wonder how long it'll be before qetu pops up to berate you (and me again) and question your (our) morals? I'll give it a day at most:)

    13 hours!

    I obviously think what you are doing is wrong.

    I wonder what they will think?

    That UK citizens are taking out membership of heritage New Zealand to get free entry into UK sites?

    Just point out that NZ/Scot/Bermuda NT does NOT include parking at NT places, weather anyone has ever been "Done" for it is a different matter.
