Hi everyone,

Following the latest Government information we have updates on our sites in England Scotland and Wales here: Latest Government Information

Members and guests who reside in a Local Alert level of Very High should not travel to any of the Club’s other campsites whilst the alert is in place but can continue to stay at a campsite within their own Very High alert area. 

If you are affected by these new Government announcements and are not able to stay at one of our campsites, and you already have a booking, please cancel or amend your booking to allow other members to benefit from the availability.

This discussion is for sites and travel information. Please also check gov.uk/find-coronavirus-local-restrictions for up to date information on local restrictions. 

Stay safe.

UPDATE 24 FEBRUARY 2021

Following the recent Government announcements, all our UK Club campsites are still currently closed but we are very pleased to be able to provide an update on anticipated reopening dates. We appreciate your patience while we review these latest Government updates, and await further guidance on certain elements. We will continue to review our UK Club campsite network in line with Government advice as it is announced. Please see our website for the specific details about each country ➡️ Reopening our Campsites

LATEST UPDATE FOR SCOTLAND 17 MARCH 2021:

Following the Scottish Government's recent guidance, we are planning to reopen all our Club campsites in Scotland from 26 April 2021. We are however awaiting further clarification on the use of communal areas and shared facilities (including toilets and showers) and will advise on this as soon as possible. 

If you have a booking at one of our Club campsites in Scotland for dates up to and including 25 April 2021, please cancel or amend your booking for free via our website or our UK Sites Booking App.

LATEST UPDATE FOR WALES 26 MARCH 2021:

Following the recent Government announcements, our Club and Affiliated campsites in Wales will reopen on 27 March 2021 for people who live in Wales only. Unfortunately due to the restrictions, our toilets and showers and other shared facilities on campsites in Wales will not be open until further notice, but fresh water and wastewater facilities will be available. www.caravanclub.co.uk/uk-holidays/reopening-our-campsites/

LATEST UPDATE 30 MARCH 2021:

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back onto our UK Club campsites very soon.
Based on the latest Government guidance, we are unfortunately unable to open our toilets or showers and other indoor shared facilities (excluding receptions) when our Club campsites in England reopen on 12 April. The provisional date for reopening these facilities is currently 17 May 2021, however this will be dependent on Government guidance. Service points and waste disposal facilities will be available and open for use, operated in line with Government guidelines. Keep up to date with the latest information on our website www.caravanclub.co.uk/uk-holidays/reopening-our-campsites/

Latest Update 08th April 2021

It's nearly time for our sites in England to reopen!! 

Also from 12 April onwards, we anticipate that people who live in England will also be able to stay on our Club campsites in Wales. Visit https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/uk-holidays/reopening-our-campsites/ for more information. 

Test and Trace

I wanted to let you all know that from 12 April our Club campsites in England and Wales will require all members and guests over the age of 16 to provide Test and Trace (or UK country variants) information. If you already have the NHS Covid-19 app, you will be asked to use this on arrival at the campsite for all party members over the age of 16. If you do not have the app, you will be provided with a log sheet to complete. For more information visit https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/uk-holidays/reopening-our-campsites/. We are awaiting further Government guidance about Test and Trace at our Club campsites in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Due to the firebreak lockdown announced today in Wales I was cancelling my booking for Cirencester when I read Rowena’s post. Can I ask why when you cancel a booking it appears you have to select the reason from drop down menu & COVID-19 restrictions isn’t an option? And you must select a reason to be able to cancel. I‘ve just clicked on not required. I trust that I won’t get an automated reminder from our club about late cancellation rules!!!

This must be one of the quickest announcements made by the Club that was incorrect within 10 minutes and up to the time of posting is still incorrect. If you access the information page and click on Wales it doesn't include the notice of national lockdown.

I was expecting an amendment this afternoon but as usual Wales seems to be afterthought for most English based organisations.

I wonder if the Club has someone dedicated to making sure that Covid advice is bang up to date via all available media? 🙂

If they have they probably prioritise getting it on Faceache rather than their own website undecided

For once I won't be critical of an announcement from the Club being wrong since trying to keep abreast of the rapidly changing different laws, advice and recommendations is akin to trying to herd farts.

In actual fact they were correct in their original post but as the National Lockdown in Wales was headline news the criticism was directed at the poor response time to such news. 

If they want to keep their members informed of potential closure of sites then someone needs to be given the task of keeping an eye on breaking news.
