Membership Information (Membership)

Membership Information

I’ve been a member within the last 4 years (i.e. 2018 onward) and would like to renew my annual membership.

I used to be a member, but it’s been longer than 4 years (i.e. before 2018). I’d like to join again.

I’ve never been a member and I’d like to join the AAC(UK) for the first time.

2022 Membership Card

New Membership System


The AAC(UK) has now joined other sections of the Österreichischer Alpenverein (ÖAV) to use the ÖAV’s central membership system. There is now a different process for renewing members and for new joiners..


Benefits for members:

  • No need to re-enter all your data when renewing
  • View and edit your own personal data online.
  • Faster membership – you become a member at midnight Central European Time on the day you apply online. No need to wait for the office to process your application.
  • Immediate access to temporary and digital membership cards, which are widely accepted by Alpine huts and rescue services – no need to wait for the membership card to be posted.
  • Future development of additional online services from the Alpenverein.

Benefits for AAC(UK):

  • Reduced administration costs.
  • More resilient IT support.
  • Able to share in IT developments across the Alpenverein.

Important notes for all memberships


1. Please note that annual membership for 2022 starts on 1st January 2022. This is a change from previous UK practice and brings us into line with Austrian policy. The membership year runs from 01 January until 31 December.

2. Your membership fee depends on the age that you will be on the last day of the membership year for which you are paying.

3. An application on behalf of another person requires their express permission to use their data.

4. Applications for children must be submitted by an adult. If you are applying on behalf of a person under 18, you must be that person’s parent or legal guardian, or have the approval of their parent or guardian.

5. Online payment is via a credit or debit payment card only. If you do not wish to renew online, please contact the AAC(UK) Office, and they will assist you.

6. You will receive a confirmation email once your payment has been accepted. Email addresses from the Club may end in “alpenverein.at” or “aacuk.org.uk”. Please check any junk or spam folders for both addresses before contacting the AAC(UK) Office.
