How do I book a CL?
Book your chosen CL directly with the owner by phone, email or on their own website and don’t forget to have your membership number ready. Please note you may be taken to a third-party website to complete your booking. Please don’t phone after 9 pm and try to book in advance, especially during busy periods. If you have any special requirements check before booking that the CL can accommodate these. If you have a large outfit make sure the CL owner knows when you book as the site and its approach roads may not be suitable.
Do CLs charge booking fees?
CL owners may request a deposit or booking fee. This could be non-refundable so we recommend that you confirm any booking/payment conditions with the owner directly. Please note that the Club will not intervene in the mediation of the return of deposits/fees as it falls within the owner’s discretion as to whether a refund is appropriate.
The fees shown in the CL entries is the minimum you can expect to pay and may vary throughout the year. Please check the price for your stay dates before booking. CLs have to cope with changing business costs and other increasing outgoings so they may have to put up their prices. Check whether there is an extra charge for any of the site facilities, additional people, pets, awnings etc.
How do I pay for a CL?
Please check with the owner which payment methods they take prior to arrival (note that CLs are unable to accept Site Night vouchers). When you book, you may be asked to pay upfront so at this stage, it’s important check what the cancellation/refund policy is for that particular CL site.
What facilities are common on CLs?
All sites will have drinking water, chemical emptying and dry rubbish disposal. Over 80% of our CLs have electric hook-up, over 900 have some hardstanding pitches and toilets and approximately 540 sites have showers.
When can I arrive/depart from a CL?
Arrange with the CL owner when you expect to arrive. If you are delayed on route, inform the site by phoning ahead to avoid losing your pitch or deposit. On arrival, present your membership card and the CL owner will show you where to pitch up. (A 3-metre radius around any part of your outfit needs to be followed for health and safety reasons.) You usually should leave by midday unless agreed otherwise with the CL owner.
Who can stay on a CL?
Club members benefit from exclusive access to the CL network. It’s easy to join online so you’re only a few clicks away from being able to stay on these privately run sites.
CLs are set up to accommodate up to five caravans, motorhomes or trailer-tents at one time. As CL pitches are reserved for touring units, tent camping is unavailable other than in the form of attached caravan awnings, toilet tents or small single-berth pup tents which are regarded as part of the outfit. Prior arrangement must be sought and additional charges may apply. However, camping is available on selected Club sites.
What can I expect to find on a CL?
CLs are varied compared to Club sites. Some have only basic fresh water and waste disposal, whereas others have full facilities and more. When browsing for a CL, be sure to read the site detail page for further information for that specific site. You may also like to visit first before you book your stay but being privately run, do check with the owners first that this is possible.
