Sites in Portugal
Ah sun-kissed Portugal. Having travelled through France and Spain in your caravan or motorhome you might as well keep going and take a well-earned rest on one of Portugal’s golden beaches.
The main beach area is the Algarve – its long stretches of golden sand, rocky coves and impressive waves make it an ideal destination for your perfect beach holiday.
The capital Lisbon is where it all happens – expect a lively but welcoming city. Visit the city centre on foot and wander through the 16th-century Bairro Alto or explore St George’s Castle – standing firm since the 6th century. Porto and Braga are well worth a visit too, both jam-packed with history.
We recommend that you book a stay at the following caravan sites in Portugal – all have been inspected by us – so you can expect high standards.
Members save €10 on the VIA-T tag from Emovis Tag (formerly Sanef Tolling) and receive a free Galp fuel discount card. Find out more about this offer.

How do I book an overseas site?
Overseas campsite bookings can easily be made on the Club website and "combined deals" are common when you book a campsite at the same time as your ferry crossing. Booking online means you save the £15 Contact Centre booking fee.
Does the Club take deposits for overseas bookings?
Yes, deposits for overseas bookings are calculated at 20% for a site and 25% for a ferry (unless it is a non-refundable ferry/Eurotunnel in which case full payment is due at time of booking). The final balance is due 10 weeks prior to travel.
Is the standard of overseas sites similar to that of the UK?
European campsites are star-rated by their own local authorities and can have different standards and regulations to the UK. However, the Club's travel team handpick and inspect our campsites so that members can be sure of a high standard.
