Caravan and Motorhome Club adds 16 new European campsites for inspiring overseas adventures in 2020
The Caravan and Motorhome Club is proud to be offering its members more options for overseas adventures than ever before, with the addition of 16 new campsites taking the total number of its European campsites to more than 340.
The new campsites are located in Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Spain. They offer something for everyone across Europe, including a campsite in a beautiful valley in Ireland, a lakeside campsite in Belgium, seaside campsites in France and campsites in the very South of Italy in beautiful Gallipoli and in the hills of Sorrento for the more adventurous. Plus, a number of existing campsites in France, Germany and Austria have been renovated, with many revamping outdoor facilities including swimming pools, aqua parks and gyms – perfect for a break during the summer months.
Harvey Alexander, director of marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said: “We are thrilled to be offering even more great European campsites to our members. It’s also wonderful to see a number of our current European sites upgrading their facilities, ensuring that we’re maintaining the Club’s high standards no matter where our members choose to stay.”
Members travelling to the Club’s European sites can also take advantage of some great combined deals and ferry offers. The Club works with all major ferry operators – Brittany Ferries, Stena Line, DFDS and P&O – to bring its members discounts on combined deals throughout the year and great value rates across popular holiday sailings including Dover to Calais, Hull to Rotterdam and Portsmouth to Caen. Current offers include 10 percent off Stena Line economy fares, with caravans going free on selected routes, as well as 10 percent off Dover crossings with P&O all year. Members can also take advantage of discounts of 10 percent off fares from Folkestone to Calais with Eurotunnel. All offers are subject to availability.
For members who haven’t ventured across the channel in their caravan or motorhome vehicle before, the Club can give them confidence to become real pioneers with its ‘First Time Abroad’ guide, which includes a three-step process for planning an overseas trip with a caravan or motorhome including where to stay, booking a ferry and getting insurance.
Tips include scheduling your arrival time to be before or after lunchtime, as many campsite receptions shut for two hours from midday. Other advice includes packing toilet roll, as some campsites don’t supply it, and bringing extra cash as many campsites don’t have an ATM.
Members of the Club (membership costs £54 per year) can also purchase a range of quality cover and insurance policies designed with touring in mind including motoring and personal, single-trip, annual multi-trip and long-stay cover options, as well as breakdown roadside assistance, vehicle and passenger repatriation, continuation of holiday travel and/or accommodation, medical and ski cover.
