Preferential Rates

SPVS have negotiated a range of preferential rates and discounts from a variety of companies and organisations. These deals represent what SPVS believe to be good value for money, and most have been used successfully by at least one member of SPVS Board. However these are not recommendations, and members are advised that it is their responsibility to ensure the goods and services offered meet their requirements.
