Re: Gym Cancellation Problems

If you join a gym, there are two good options:

Cross out the auto-renew clause on the contract you sign, keep a copy.
OR
Give them a cancellation on sign-up and have them acknowledge/sign a copy.
Three. Get a gym membership that doesn't autorenew - see my post above. Not only that, they credited us with days lost due to closure.

I agree with litespeed. People need to get into the habit of immediately sending (registered mail) their cancellation letter when they sign up for any contract such as gym, mobile phone etc. Or if you can, do it in person with a signed acknowledgement by the manager.

Most people are too busy or too absent-minded to manage all the "cancel before" deadlines for the myriad of contracts they have.

It is not in the company's interest to advise you when your contract is coming up so why not be proactive and not have to worry about it.

Or just put a note it your diary to check at least a month before the deadline; I have this for health, car, household etc and then I check premiums and make a decision in good time.
