    I want to travel to Spain but only once or twice per year. Joining the membership scheme would be financially prohibitive - so I'm looking for an alternative.
    If some very kind person would be willing to add me as an associate member then I would be more than happy to pay the fee, which I think is £60, plus a little extra for the inconvenience. I am working on the principle that if I don't ask, I won't get anywhere!:Smile::Smile:
    Cheers

    I'm not sure why you think joining Club Voyage isn't worth it. Certainly the first year is dearer with the joining fee on top of the annual sub, but if you make 2 trips I think you'll find it worthwhile, even in year one and definitely thereafter.

    Try a couple of dummy bookings for the ferry fare only and subtract 30% and see how it works out. E.g. sailing out in June and back in Jul for a 6m van & 2 adults would save around £240.

    I've been told that the discount varies and isn't always 30%, apparently it can be much lower.:Sad:

    I have been a France member for around 7 years and have always got 30%.

    The T&C's do say they reserve the right etc....so it is possible but never happened to me.

    Discounts are less on any offers that they have running occasionally but clearly stated on the website.

    What you propose regarding associate membership is a good idea, my daughter is an associate member on mine.

    £350 ?? never seen that big a difference when pricing for my 6.0 meter van. I take it that is return. Think LD is well booked for MAY because i could not find a crossing with a cabin, only a seat. BUSBY:BigGrin:

    Then you've to travel down to Spain. BF's Economie is about £120 return cheaper than their cruise sailings.

    I'd be willing to pay £100 for the privilege, which would give my 'foster parent' £40 towards their own costs!
