CUTC membership fee

The CUTC membership fee is $20 per 12 months.

Need to make a payment, or want to see if you’re eligible for a refund after pulling out of a trip? Here’s all the info you need.


If you’re organizing a trip, and don’t just want to split petrol costs, the standard club rate for reimbursing drivers on club trips is $0.28 per kilometer driven (ie total distance both ways). This considers wear and tear on the drivers car and the fact they have to stuff all your muddy, stinky stuff somewhere.

Making a payment for membership or trip costs:

1.    See the treasurers during a meeting. One or both of the treasurers are generally available between 7pm and 7.45pm on Wednesday nights as part of the club meeting (term time only). We don’t have eftpos so you will need to bring cash.

2.    Internet banking into the club account. The club’s account number is 01 0819 0257568 00. This option is only available for NZ bank accounts – we can’t accept international bank transfers. Please use your name and what it’s for as a reference (e.g. John Smith Membership)

3.    Manual payment at any branch of the ANZ. You can deposit money at any branch of the ANZ over the counter. You’ll need the club’s bank account number which is 01 0819 0257568 00. Please use your name and what it’s for as a reference (e.g. John Smith Membership). The nearest ANZ to the University of Canterbury is located on Riccarton Road, near the Bush Inn shopping centre.

4.    See treasurer Richard White in his office in the Biology building on Thursdays between 10am and 12noon during term time. Email him first to make sure he is there (treasurer[at] You will need to bring cash.

Refund policy

Refunds are at the discretion of the committee and are not guaranteed. Having people pull out of a trip at the last minute causes a lot of extra work for the organisers, and often ends up costing the club money as we book vans based on the number of people who have paid. Also, trips are often over-subscribed and we don’t like to turn people away and then end up with empty seats and empty beds.

The cut-off is 4pm Thursday. If we have not heard from you by then, we will assume that you are still coming, and will book huts/vans accordingly. The club keeps a record of who bails from trips, so repeated last-minute cancellations may result in other club members being given preferential treatment on trips with limited numbers.

If you need to pull out of a trip, please contact the trip organiser directly.

If you have any queries, please contact the treasurers 🙂
