Membership Application

You may apply for membership to Holiday-Buddies here if you are over 18. The information below will help you get the best from your membership; please read carefully. If you are looking for a gym-buddy, please complete Section A and C, and give details of your local gym, times when you want to go and any other information in the comments box on Section B.

Section A is about you. We need this information so that only bona fide applicants become members. We will not sell or give this information to anybody outside the organisation. Our Privacy Statement has more about how seriously we take this issue. Naturally, we do need to let other members, who match your holiday ambitions, know how to contact you. We let you choose how you would prefer they did this in the first instance. Of course, if you are happy with the introduction, you can provide them with alternatives as you get to know each other better. We also give you the option to make the first contact ('I initiate'), in which case none of your details will be passed to other members by us. However, we advise using this option sparingly because we will be unable to match two members with similar requirements if both have selected this option. We recommend either email or telephone as the best choice.

Section B is about the type of holiday or break that you are interested in, when you want to go away, and so on. We will use this information to select other members with similar interests that we can introduce you to. Some of the criteria will, for you, be an Essential requirement, others will will Highly Desirable, Desirable or Not Important. We ask that you prioritise each of the criteria to improve the likelihood of a successful introduction.

To make the most of your membership, be generous with the dates that you want to go away. If you are available to go away at any bank holiday for example, put this down. We will keep matching your request at every opportunity. You can also use this form to update your choices, so even if you are unsure of future plans, apply for membership now. To renew a 'Two Year Unlimited Introductions' membership, tick the 'current member' box and tell us your name in Section A and request renewal in the comments box.

Finally, note that whilst your information will be stored on computer, all the applications are processed by real people. We recommend you use this flexibility in specifying your requirements, it will increase the number of introductions we make. You can learn more about Holiday Buddies on our FAQs page, which has answers to many of the frequently asked questions.
