They don't do home delivery (why not with a club membership!!) and the nearest store that has stock is 115 miles away from me. The next nearest is 246 miles away. Useless

They currently have 47 stores in GB; but you are right it is stupid to offer this as collect in store only......

35% saving for folks who live near by. good deal

Got mine from the NEC show, £35 and two free nights. + got a lovely hessian bag... for the Mrs. of course...

Book Rosemarkie, a beach front site, if you are lucky you can wake to see the dolphins swimming in the bay, or walk down the beach to the lighthouse as low tide turns, you will see them playing on the incoming tide or bow wave of the ships into/out of Inverness. .

worth every penny

Have you seen the price of their sites,, dont been fooled. Even for members it is at least £10 dearer per night than the next equilavent!!! Be warned!!

Just got back into caravanning after 5 years and I have to agree, their sites (and the CC sites) are now quite expensive to what they were and should be compared with independents before booking.

Cancelled my camping and caravan membership last year, they hiked prices of all 3 sites close to home by £10 per night which is totally disgusting for a non profit company?

We found another site in Sheringham for £21/pn with brand new shower block and decided to boycotted c & c totally!!

AGREE!!! disgusting for a non profit company!

Is caravan club any better?

Having said, if you only look at the membership price in this deal I would go for hot and gain your savings back on the boat trip!..

I wasnt comparing to the Caravan Club, probably much the same. I was comparing to other equilavent private sites

Equivalent sites we have chosen this year are Lincoln for a week (just been) and Oxford - both cheaper than the CC sites.

Now some of the 5 van sites can be very reasonable if you don't want full facilities - £12 per night with electric behind a delightful pub near Tunbridge Wells is where the Clubs score, having said that both of the clubs have been encouraging the CS and CL sites to raise their prices.

The two clubs started off being run for the members by the members, not anymore. Its pretty typical of most organisations over the last few years - greed is good!

Can someone explain the connection between C&CC listed sites hiking their prices and the C&CC making a profit? I was not aware that C&CC owned any of the sites in their books. I thought they only acted as inspector of site standards. Certainly, all the sites I have used appear to be privately owned.
With one exception, I have always been very pleased with the sites I have used from their guidebook. No, they are not the cheapest, but it is not a lottery either. At least you have someone to complain to if not satisfied. I have also used their travel and insurance services when priced competitively and found the customer service very good.

The connection was one of an ever widening price gap, contacts between both clubs and their respective CS or CL sites have been encouraging these private sites to up their prices.

I have no complaints about any of the standards or facilities on offer ( except perhaps some years ago some of the staff quite obviously must have missed the day of customer service training).

The debate on prices is well documented on various caravan forums - with only those new to caravanning accepting these high prices.
Some people can remember the prices of 5 or 6 years ago and can only feel sorry for those who have been misled into having what is now a quite expensive 'stay-cation'

Thanks for the reply, I do agree that camping is no longer the cheap hol that it once was in the UK, but I have come across fewer camp sites with showers like sewers and assume that investment in the sites is driving up prices. If prices are being driven by rising charges from the C&CC, then that is out of order, as they are meant to be on the side of the camper.

not woking now

Im always toying with the idea of camping and caravanning club.
When my AA breakdown runs out Im thinking of joining this club and the RAC for their arrival scheme. Where they tow your van to the campsite and if cant fix it bring you home again.
Im always dreading the thought of a breakdown and having to cancel a holiday!
