Membership fee for a BVL membership (valid from 1 January 2022)
You can choose between a company membership, a personal membership and a trial membership. With company membership, you appoint so-called contact persons depending on the size of your company. These are the contact persons in your company who benefit from the entire membership service. With personal membership, we take into account your respective work and life situation. The trial membership "Test the Best" provides an insight into the membership with a full range of benefits before it automatically changes into a regular personal membership at the beginning of the following year.

|* Contact persons are our contact persons in your company who benefit from the entire member service just like personal members.
All contact persons deposited on 01.01. of a year can use the services of the BVL company membership for the entire calendar year. Of course, membership places can be reallocated if a deposited contact person leaves your company during the year. In addition, it is possible to exchange contact persons at the end of each year.
The main contact is also the admin of the company membership and is responsible for the administration of the membership.
