    Have been using ACSI card since we started out ( lord only knows how much we have saved over the years ! ) but this year .. two bonus's :BigGrin:

    There are now so many camp sites listed it comes in two books rather than one, and...

    inside book one ( along with your ACSI card ) is a little flier with a code number on it.

    Use that on the ACSI web site and get a free carnet ID card.

    Just sorted mine out.. That will save having to leave the darned passport in reception ( which I always tend to worry about )

    Apart from the passport advantage there are others, but don't know how advantageous they really are regarding Liability insurance, but it is free saving £4.95, so why not have it ! The following from web site.....


    Please note! If you have a discount code which entitles you to a free card, complete your order and go to ‘My shopping basket’. You can then fill in your code and you will receive a € 4.95 discount.

    ACSI Club ID has been especially developed for European Camping enthusiasts. It’s a Camping Carnet (a card the size of a credit card) and offers many benefits for the user.

    When you show your ACSI Club ID you no longer have to hand in your passport when checking in*. To add to this, you and your fellow travellers (up to 11 people) are automatically insured for liability during your stay at a ACSI camp site!

    At the moment campers from the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Denmark can order the card.

    sorry if I,m being thick but whats it for? The discount card is all you need .....have not applied for the other card yet.....is it just another ruse by company's to get our contact details(sorry cynical )
    never been asked to give up our passports some sites do hang onto acsi card till you leave though.

    Well how do they get your camping card to you if they have not got your details ?
    Do you collect your ACSI card from somewhere ?

    If you travel in some of the places we have ( Hungary, Slovinia etc etc ) you tend to worry about the security of your passport..
    With the carnet you do not need to leave your passport at the site office..
    Presenting the card at certain retail outlets will also elicit a discount ( details as yet unknown but given how extremely happy everyone is with ACSI I doubt they will screw it all up by not coming good )

    Mick, get on there and get registered mate :thumb: Sign up for the news letter too.. last year that alone saved us aboout £100 with up to date info on some German sites that actually got the ACSI label whilst we were away :Smile:

    Am I the only one to buy a carnet?

    Am I the only member that pays the C&CC each year for a camping Carnet? the idea is you do not have to hand over a passport as the carnet is your I.D. also it is your insurance cover for public liability while you are on a site in europe.

    The European ACIS books come with a new card that is a Carnet same as those issue by the C&CC and other organisations. It now comes free from ACIS.. butfor some reason not with the ACIS books you get in the UK?

    I have used the code and applied for my carnet card ...already have the discount card with the two books.

    If ACIS is goingt o issue the carnet earch year then that makes the book a real cheap buy. I have already booked a site we use for 20 nights in June at €12 (gone up by €1 this year).. but that is a big saving over what we would have to pay on the site if we did not have the ACIS card.. plus I save the C&CC £5.50 they charge for the carnet.

    It was a bit of messing about to get the free carnet, and I had already registered on there site long ago. But I think next year I will buy direct from them as they then include it in the pack.

    Worth having the ACIS ...

    Not the only one, I have always considered a CCI a necessity when camping in Europe. I have also had the ACSI discount card for a few years and found it very cost effective, if I can now get the CCI for free even more so.

    In Spain there is no law requiring the "surrender" of your passport for the duration of your stay, but I believe the law in France does require it to be held.... will this change with the new ACSI Camping Carnet?
