    Just had the e- mail for the 2014 ACSI.I am having problems with getting the payment through.I am assuming that everyone has got the e-mail and that the server cannot cope?:Doh:

    Don't know if it's already been mentioned here that there is a fourth ACSI price band next year - €18, in addition to €12, €14 & €16.

    Is it worth it?

    We toured France and Belgium this year, first trip outside U.K. in our mh. We had a wonderful two months and got to grips with the aires, so much cheaper than Blighty. When we went to campsites, private and municipal, we were asked if we had an ACSI card. We have a rough idea of what it is, is it worth it and will we save money? We plan to tour in Europe for 4 months in 2014. We are a retired couple who have a budget to keep to. We are undecided as to whether to shell out for this card.
    In 2015, we may, probably will, rent out our house for a year and tour as much of Europe as we can, we love the life. To ACSI or not, help!
    Regards to all
    Anne and Ken.

    It certainly is worth it if you plan to stay on sites often. We have saved a fortune this year on our UK to Crete and back journey.

    We have used it extensively abroad and it has saved us a lot of money.All the sites are of good quality and you can get some real bargains.The key thing is you must use it out of the main season so great from Sept to May or some sites even June.Highly recommend:thumb:

    Is it possible that you have had a new debit card in the past year and they cannot take the payment on your old card number

    The DVD is also very useful when planning routes, all the info and more than in the books and operates without internet on laptop :thumb:

    ACSI

    We use the ACSI book, but as we stay abroad over Winter the 2013 runs out in December,
    and because we left the UK before the 2014 book is published. We are stuck.
    Is it not better rather than run for a calendar year, to run over the low season,
    say Oct to April.
    Or am I missing something.:Sad:

    Perhaps better to run peak to peak season as this is when it is least useful :Smile:

    If you use a Sat Nav that will accept added POIs (Points of Interest), it is also worth downloading them. We found ours very useful to navigate straight to an ACSI site rather than having to use the Latitude/Longitude co-ordinates in the ACSI book. We use a Tom Tom and found the POIs through Tom Tom Home.

    Yes, I agree with that. Their timing seems silly.

    They will send it to another address and there's a facility on their website to change the delivery address, so we'll get ours sent to a friend in Spain.

    Acsi

    :Laughing::Laughing:Ordered a card via vicarious yesterday, thanks to all who read my post and gave good advice. I can't wait for next April when we go off to France, Luxembourg and Belgium again, this time for 2 months and in September for another 2 months. Buying the motor home is the best thing we ever did, I just love it.
