I’ve not been able to use my Merlin Annual Pass. I’ve already paid upfront for the year. Can I have a refund?
As our attractions are closed, we will be extending your Merlin Annual Passes to account for the period of time that our attractions are closed. We’ll be taking care of this for you, so there’s no need to get in touch with our customer service team. Your existing Passes will be automatically extended in our ticketing system – so once our attractions reopen, your Passes will scan as normal at the ticket barriers. You are not required to have your Merlin Annual Pass cards reprinted. Unfortunately, we’re unable to offer refunds to customers who have paid for the Merlin Annual Pass as this is a non-refundable product (see clause 6 in our terms and conditions www.merlinannualpass.co.uk/terms) Further information can be found here: www.merlinannualpass.co.uk/coronavirus

I wasn't able to use my Merlin Membership when the attractions closed. Can I cancel my Membership?
As our attractions are closed we will be ensuring our Merlin Members are not paying monthly for the period of time that our attractions were closed. We will be automatically freezing your Membership from the 1st April and payments will be suspended until our attractions re-open. Unfortunately as this is a 12-month contract we’re unable to cancel your Membership (see clause 27.2 in our terms and conditions https://www.merlinannualpass.co.uk/information/membershipterms).
