Deals and discounts for members
On top of the familiar benefits of trade union membership, Nautilus has negotiated a range of deals and discounts on the services and products that members use most often.
Many discounts are available in all countries where the Union has members, while others apply to a specific national branch.
To find out more about each discount described here, or to access the direct link to the dedicated Nautilus Plus website for members, please log into My Nautilus.
UK Branch discounts
The Nautilus Plus discounts package is based in the UK, and some benefits are also available to all members of the Union, whatever their home country. It offers discounts on a wide range of health, leisure and financial services – all negotiated with the seafarer's lifestyle in mind. The package includes a mortgage broker service and life insurance tailored for members.
Home energy savings
Union Energy is an energy price comparison service owned by the UK union federation TUC. If you live in the UK, it can help you find the cheapest energy supplier in your area. Union Energy's service is completely free and annual savings are generally around £150. An energy price comparison service is also offered under Nautilus Plus.
Personal, home and family legal services
Nautilus International offers members and their families a range of legal advice and assistance on non-employment matters. UK-based members and their close relatives are entitled to a range of discounted or even free legal services. These include accident claims, disease claims, clinical negligence claims, family law, housing advice, conveyancy, personal insolvency, will-making and power of attorney.
Seatax offers UK members sailing under a foreign flag agreement a 10% reduction on their enrolment fee and a 5% reduction on fee re-enrolment.
Crew Family Office (CrewFO) – one of the Union's strategic partners in the large yacht sector – can offer Nautilus UK members with discounts on help to complete UK tax returns. CrewFO Preferred Plus membership is also on offer, giving members access to other advice as well as the UK tax return service. This discount is available to all UK members, not just yacht crew.
Nautilus has secured a 10% discount for members undertaking any training courses with the Maritime Skills Academy (MSA) in Dover. Members will need their Union membership number handy when registering for a course. Members can also get discounts on business services under Nautilus Plus such as IT training, CV writing and interview coaching.
Netherlands branch discounts
Members of the Nautilus Netherlands branch can use their Nautilus membership card to make use of a special benefits programme from the FNV union federation.
