What is CSMA Club?
Since 1923, CSMA Club (formerly known as the Civil Service Motoring Association) has been working hard to support civil service employees and their immediate families. This includes both current and past employees, as well as those who do or have worked for central government or organisations with roots in the civil service - BT or the Post Office, for example - and Prospect union members.
Run entirely by its members, for its members, CSMA Club endeavours to help you make the most of your money by arranging significant discounts across a broad range of products - from life necessities like home and car insurance to leisure activities. Indeed, these days, we're the largest private home, motoring and leisure organisation in the UK.
The benefits of joining
Here at CSMA Club, we are committed to helping make life more enjoyable for our members, and that's why we've put together a fantastic collection of more than 50 money-saving benefits to help your hard-earned cash go further.
As a member of the club, you can enjoy excellent discounts on car insurance, as well as servicing, tyre maintenance and breakdown cover.
Meanwhile, the organisation has also arranged a vast collection of offers for members when it comes to leisure time, helping you to really relax and unwind - after all, as a member of the civil service, you've worked hard to help make the country a better place, so you deserve to put your feet up!
For example, if you're planning a summer holiday, you can receive 20 per cent off stays at leisure retreats in destinations across the UK. Self-catering cottages in Cornwall and Devon, holiday parks In the Forest of Dean, manor house hotels in Sussex - there are plenty of places you can go to unwind and reconnect with your loved ones without spending too much money.
Want to try something new? Our special events calendar is chock-full of exhilarating events such as motor races and air shows, as well as exclusive club days, giving you the chance to enjoy a fabulous day out with your family, surrounded by like-minded people and maybe even some current or former colleagues! Go-karting and off-road driving are just some examples.
In addition, members can also make the most of our free financial consultations. The sound advice provided can help you get a grip on your finances, or help you plan for the future.

Having been a cauldron of controversy regarding care levels, rumoured budget cuts and waiting periods over the past few years, the NHS has hit the headlines again recently with its landmark reforms coming into effect. But what challenges do these pose for our health service - and what effect will they have on patients?
The idea of the EU referendum has sparked controversy all over the shop, whether you work in a government role like the civil service or you're a member of the public. While Cameron, Clegg and everyone else in between are arguing the merits of the proposal, the rest of us are wondering one thing - how will it impact our holidays?
As a resident of the UK, there are certain things that it's inevitable you'll complain about - no matter who you are or what you do. The weather's always either too hot, too cold or too wet, for example, and the national rail system is The Enemy. In fact, the latter is a perpetual political ticking time bomb - and the government is oh-so-adept at lighting the fuse.
While members of the civil service are unlikely to possess impossibly grand abodes or lavish second homes, some of the nation's top political figures tend to have a little more luck in that department. In fact, such homes rank among the UK's most recognised estates.
