Membership on hold and cancellation

Heading away on an extended holiday or having surgery? Perhaps you're leaving the city and exploring the world. For whatever reason, sometimes you need to put your membership on hold, or get out of your contract early. The Terms of Use form part of your contract and provide the guidelines to your entitlements. When you sign your membership form, or agree to the T&C's for online memberships, these are the terms you are agreeing to, and that we use to make decisions on your requests.
