As an MDL Freedom Berthing member, we hope that you enjoy the benefits that MDL offers, with the use of 150 marinas in the UK, France, Spain and Italy, fuel at cost and generous discounts. Well now you can earn rewards for yourself and your friends by introducing them to the benefits of becoming an MDL Freedom Berthing member.
'Introduce Your friends' is your own friends network where you can introduce up to nine friends at once, or one at a time throughout the season. Everyone in your friends network will receive the same value in rewards when your friends become Freedom Berthing members. As well as giving you rewards we'll also do our best to arrange that you can all berth as near to each other as possible, or your friends can even join at one of our other marinas and still be part of the scheme.
For example if you introduce Mr Ford and Mr Hamill to your marina during April you'll all receive rewards to the value of £300. Should you then introduce Mr Baker in July and he chooses to berth at one of our other marinas, he'll then receive the next reward up, £400, and you and your original two friends will receive an extra £100 worth of rewards - so that you're always receiving the same.

Your Friends Network
For each new friend that joins your network, the value of the reward goes up. It doesn't matter when your friend take up Freedom Berthing so long as they do so by 31st December 2020 - your rewards will be adjusted retrospectively.
Q. Where can I spend my rewards?
A. Full list of participating marina tenant companies listed here above and will be updated constantly.
Q. How long is the shelf life of my rewards? Do they have to be taken in 2020?
A. Your rewards must be redeemed or cashed-in within 12 months of issue.
Q. What happens if someone that I introduce then goes on to introduce someone himself, do I get anything then?
A. No; unless you directly introduce someone you don't benefit. In this example he would create his own network and leave yours, as you can only ever be in one network.
Q. It says that it doesn't matter when your friends take up annual berthing – your rewards will be adjusted respectively – how does that work?
A. The scheme is based upon attracting genuine new customers and additional vessels into our marinas. If your friends join us on a 12-month berthing contract we'll honour the reward(s).
Q. Why won't you give a reward for trailer/sailors, jet-ski, dory or swing moorings, they are still new customers to you?
A. Frankly, there is not enough gross value in these types of contract to justify rewards at the level we are offering – and we did not want to offer two-tier rewards.
Q. What happens if one or more of my friends cancel, do I have to pay something back?
A. No – once you have successfully introduced someone and they have signed up for and occupied an annual berth in the usual way, then your reward(s) and those of all the friends in the network is secure.
Q. Do I have any responsibility for friends that cannot pay for their berthing for any reason?
A. Definitely not – once you have successfully introduced someone and they have become an annual member, then you are entitled to your reward(s) and any credit risk is ours.
