Back in August I got a letter from the CC informing me that they could not take the coming years subscription from my credit card because it has expired. This suited me because I had decided to cancel my membership. I should have written and cancelled but was too lazy. I figured that if I am not paying they will get the message that I did not want to renew. As the club only held out of date debit card details, I assumed that they could not take any money! They then bombarded me with lots of letters reminding me of all the benefits staying with the club (I can't think of any right now) most of these letters went in the bin without being read. Luckily a letter I received today didn't go straight in the bin, in the letter was the following paragraph oh: The club has now subscribed to a service provided by Visa and MasterCard whereby they will provide a monthly update to the club's record via a secure method. This will ensure that we have members most recent car details and will facilitate the ongoing collection of payment. We have now received current details of your new card and will charge you with your 2009 annual membership fee within the coming week. Essentially this means that VISA are selling to the Caravan club details of your new credit card, I wonder who else they will sell this information to.
