    There are definitely lots of cross overs so I am sure the camperstop would suffice but I must admit to having the aires books as well as I like the details.

    Would buy the whole lot together with the Bordatlas from Germany. They do not, as they say contain "all the aires" but should be renamed "Some of the aires" Try also Camping car infos, which has free download of POI's for aires throughout europe.

    Bill, we use only the Camperstop book, which covers EU and UK, all be it very limited UK......... You can also download the "poi" for tomtom etc which matches the book reference. This is very handy for checking before routing to campsite.

    I believe there will be a new version of the 'All the Aires France' released in the new year so unless you need one now it would be worth delaying getting one. I do like the detail in it and find it easier to follow than the others.

    Sorry missed that bit.

    I have found one or two in the french books that are not in the UK one but as you indicate most are duplicated. It could just be that some aires are opened after one has gone to press but get included in another. I have also picked the odd one up from the french mags. I tend to keep to the UK one in France & Camperstops in Germany.

    Have Camperstop, but like the Pics in All the Aires... Camperstop also works seamlessly with the downloaded app "TomTom", if you have them both on an I-Pad with GPS.. Then you don't really need a load of books and Camperstop works offline as well... Hope I'm not teaching egg sucking..

    "CAMPERSTOP" is our BIBLE! GPS is brilliant so long as you use correct format on your Sat Nav.
    Of course there are not as many "aries" as all the books put together (there must be at least 5 or 6 books) At an average price of £10 = £60 compared with £20 for Camperstop. This is the one we use and have never not been able to find some where to stay.

    How exactly does that in reality?
    How do you pick an appropriate site?

    We normally use the Aires book or ASCI app then put co ordinates into satnav

    Regards

    Same here to much reliance on gadgets for me I like to choose where I stay myself rather than rely on a gadget to do it for me. We use Aires books and ACSI that's it used to use Alan Rogers but don't bother with that either as the other two cover it.

    only use Aires on route as long as there is space and not noisey its good enough. you get a good idea by the location on sat nav screen as to how close to a main road it will be. In over 2o years at this have only not liked an aire once or twice and moved on.....

    you can still use the book as well for planning . but coordinates will already be in the satnav if you have downloaded the set

    We use Campingcar magazine Aires book along with Campingcar infos POI on the satnag. Have found this combination works very well in most of Europe. The book is very good for seeing if the aire is open in the winter and how many vans the aire takes

    Take yourself back to your youth. (Whatever youe gender)

    Go into a palais de dance, dance hall or disco, (that should cover all age groups)

    You are on ' the pull'

    One hall has three thousand members of the opposite (or same) sex,
    the next has four thousand people, and finally, the last one has five thousand.

    Far be it from me tell you which hall to choose but after the cupboard that is the U K. Any better choice has to be a good thing.
