It would be great to have feedback on the caravan sites and how the safety measures are working. We will be watching for the next two weeks to see how safe the sites are before we decide to start touring again.  Maybe a lot of people will put reviews on individual caravan sites.

"we always allow more time"

That's obviously what those who arrived early have done.

But today club sitee are open to arrivals with an alloted arrival time from 0900surprised

Yes I know but some poor chap must have a 12 O'Clock arrival. They should hit plenty of traffic and I suspect have problems finding somewhere to wait near their destination. Thay is why I said especially a 12 O'clock arrival as an example

In this day and age there are no excuses for ariving early.

If a deliberate act I would agree, as regards arriving at club sites, but otherwise I think we can all see that there may be reasons this happens.

A look at all the posts about getting on an early tunnel crossing, where folks may have allowed for the usual M25 chaos,would suggest its not that rare-it just doesn't seem to happen to me.

It happened to us Allan. Arrived at Calais good and early as we tend to do, got put on an earlier sailing, met no traffic on the Dartford crossing or M25, cock up on our part forgot about the time difference and arrived at Commons Wood before 9 instead of my guesstimate of near 12.

Was allowed in and would if asked paid an extra day but were not. What we wouldnt have done however wasgo looking for somewhere to park a 12 meters outfit for 3 hours.

Since I started to keep records just 20 years ago I have towed 110k miles and I am still not as perfect as many posters here who never miscalculate an arrival timeembarassed

It is not at all unsual on M25 to have a very easy run ,despite what is "exspected"
