New to Consol?

 

Tanning for the first time on a sunbed can seem a little daunting but thankfully, with the Consol experience, it needn’t be. We’ve got a simple, easy, fool proof guide to get you in the studio, on the beds and out with an incredible tan. Sounds good? Let’s get started.

 

GET SET WITH THE APP

 

Signup to your FREE Consol membership, you will need to be over 18 years and have your ID ready for this.

 

Grab your mobile, head over to your App store and download ‘Consol Tanning.’ You’re about to become a member from your mobile and have instant access to our very best offers and all our Studios.

 

Choose ‘Sign up to the App’ and enter your information as prompted. You’ll be asked to show your ID and make a very short recording so we can meet the age verification criteria to complete your membership.

 

App sign up completed? Welcome to Consol! We think you’ll like it here. You’ll find the App is home to incredible offers, studio information and easy payments and contactless QR studio login.

 

QUICK START GUIDE

 

So, you’re a member and have the App but what happens next? Allow us to simplify the process with our quick start guide to using Consol once you’re a member.

 

Step 1.

Take our ‘Skin Type Test’. This is your starting point for tanning. Understanding your skin type is essential to achieving the very best results. Answer the questions as honestly as you can and use your results in the next step.

 

Step 2.

Take our ‘Treatment Recommender’. This handy feature takes the guess work out of your session times and tells you exactly how many minutes you need to tan for to achieve your goals in conjunction with your personal skin type. Cool huh?

 

Step 3.

For the most cost effective way to tan, purchase your First Time Offer package via the App. Consol credit will be safely stored on your account until you choose to use it and can be accessed at any Consol studio when you login to your account. 1 Consol Credit equals £1 when buying tanning sessions or vending products.

 

Ok, so you have the App, you know what your skin type is and how many minutes you want and now you’re ready to head to the studio! Now what?

 

YOUR VISIT

 

We are open 7 days a week from 7am until 10pm with no appointments required. Simply turn up and head to the kiosk in the reception area. Open your app, choose the ‘Login’ feature and hold the QR code in front of the camera (Keep your camera still and aim for about a foot away). Now you’ll be logged into your account and you’ll see your purchased credits in the top right-hand corner.

 

Select your preferred sunbed from our available beds and select how many minutes you’d like to take using the touch screen. This will display the cost to you and you can adjust as you increase or decrease the amount of minutes. When you’re happy with your bed selection and session time, click ‘NEXT’ to visit the products page.

 

Remember to purchase a pair of reusable UV goggles if this is your first time, as tanning without can cause serious damage to your eyes. We also stock a range of incredible tanning products to enhance your results so go ahead and add your selection to the basket. For more product information, just head to the vending section of our website prior to your visit for the full rundown of what we offer.

 

Finally, you’ll see the offers page so if you haven’t taken advantage of any offers on the App, you should do so now.

 

Payment is super easy and can be done using contactless using your phone or card, just press the card button to do so, if you pay with cash, we only take notes and any change will be put on your account as Consol credits.

 

TAKING YOUR SESSION

 

Once you’ve paid, the number of your cabin will display on the kiosk front so don’t forget, as remember your vending items from the dispense hatch on the vending machine and head to your private cabin. Your session will automatically start 2.5 minutes after you’ve paid so you do not need to do anything.

 

If you need more time before the sunbed starts, you can choose from a variety of ‘Extra Undress Time’ options at the bottom of the checkout page before you pay.

 

Spray and wipe down your bed, apply your products, pop on your goggles (You don’t have to use the elastic on lay down beds, so long as the eye pieces are covering your eyes) and take your position on the bed ready for your session to start and pull the canopy down.

 

Once inside, you’ll see the full control panel of options available to customise your session including air conditioning to heat or cool the bed, cooling mist, facial tanning power, music volume and a number of other comfort features depending on the bed you’ve chosen.

 

Relax, enjoy your session and move around freely to get an even tan. Afterwards, please spray and wipe the bed down again for the next customer and don’t forget your belongings as you vacate the cabin!

 

If you need more help, please check the staffing hours on the App, so they can advise you further or call our Helpline free from your mobile on 08000 886090.

 

That’s your start to finish guide from App to Tan and we hope you enjoy the results of your tanning session!
