    Just had a look at the CCC out & about to see what is available at Easter. I'm not sure if it was because I was using my tablet but the new lay out is a great improvement on previous offerings, decent search, maps and more info. I also noticed that they are promising a soon to be released app.

    I used it, briefly, a couple of days ago and had the opposite reaction. No accounting for taste is there? :D

    No doubt I'll get used to it in time.

    Just had a look and used the quickbook facility on the front page to see what was available in the south west and it came up with three sites open now.

    First impressions, assuming this is new as I haven't used their website for a year or so, is it is very good.

    Try planning a tour staying at a few sites and then throw in a mix and match with CC & CL sites.

    The fundamental issue is the inability to see the pitch availability. It's B, useless to just say there no pitches and the only way to find out when there are any is by trial and error..

    I have not looked at site booking (don't do sites much), it's the Out & About section that I thought much improved.

    FJ, not having a pop just a rant about the booking system. Despite comment to the club they can't seem to grasp that people visit more than one site and sometimes you need to juggle dates to fit around pitch availability. Something that's nigh on impossible on the C&CC site.

    Have suggested they look at the CC site for a few ideas.

    We don't do club sites but use the DA rallies. Think the new site is terrible - the meets aren't even in date order! Far worse than the "old" version.

    I haven't tried to follow a booking through to completion but this screen shot shows availability of hard standing pitches with electric at one site. The dark green bit is because I asked it for three nights starting tomorrow. Not sure why folk can't go from here to a booking.

    Yes but now try to do the same when the date you have chosen is not available.

    All you get is a statement that says no pitches available. You then have to find a vacant date to get that display up.

    Interested in your view when you've tried that.

    We never use the website to book. Much less hassle calling.

    I see the problem, not much use if you can't see availability without first knowing when it is!

    Edit: Just tried to book a date shown as not available and I was able to see the calender. The dates I wanted were shown with a cross against them as not available.

    If this is supposed to be a new website were your problems with the old one?

    Obviously quite a few people pay ...
    We do sometimes
    Sometimes we go somewhere else
    It's a choice isn't it

    Using quick book select core castle for 3 nights arriving good Friday and advise what you get I'm beginning to wonder if it's me!!!!!!!!

    All I get is no accommodation, your then left to trial and error pick a free night so you can get the calandar view up showing availability.

    Folks the system is C** p

    Did you click on the + sign then click on the pale green tick mark against the type of pitch you want? This how I got the screen shot above even though there was no availability for the dates I chose.

    But I agree it isn't very intuitive.

    The prices shown are non member rates, members are about 25% cheaper. Access to this site is terrible a lot of the pitches are under trees and in the shade. there are much better c/l & c/s sites around the area.
