Refer Friends

Home   Refer Friends

As an MDL berth holder, we hope that you enjoy the benefits that MDL offers, with access to a network of 150 stunning marinas in some of the best locations in the UK, France and Spain. Why not refer a friend to MDL and both enjoy the benefits? You’ll each be rewarded with up to 550 points when they berth with us annually. You can refer as many friends as you like, and they can even join at one of our other marinas and you’ll both still earn points. Read our terms and conditions below to find out how many points you could earn.

How it works


Sign into your MyMDL account to start earning and giving up to 550 points!


It’s quick and easy! Click on ‘Refer your Friends’ and share a few details


When they join you’ll both receive your points to spend on any of our services!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. When will I receive my points?

A. Your points will be added to your MyMDL account 30 days after your friend has started their annual berthing contract.

Q. Where can I spend my points?

A. You can spend your points on any MDL service in line with current Otium terms and conditions.

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.

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 berth holder, then any credit risk is ours.

Q. Do I still get my reward if my friend cancels?

A. If your friend cancels their contract or fails to pay for their berthing fees within the first 30 days, then neither of you will receive the points.

Q. Will my friend still get 5% back in points on berthing fees when they join?

A. Yes.

Q. How will the points work for Freedom Berthing members?

A. If you’re a Freedom Berthing member, we’ll convert the points to pounds and add as a credit on your account to use against your berth renewal, after your friend has renewed their annual berth.
