    Across Europe there are ACSI sites. You buy a book listing them all and it comes with a card costs around £14.
    With the card you get an off season discount (max cost this year €16). :thumb:

    Overseas is a down under expression equal to your "Abroad"

    Or ! if you are fortunate enough to live in Cornwall, it means crossing the River Tamar and entering the dark, dark, world that is England (and of course the English Celt Colonies):Wink:

    Thank you for that information.
    I couldn't even get the letters in the right order. Doh !

    Overseas was first coined in the UK by the Armed forces, I believe.

    ACSI is a Dutch organistation that inspects camping and caravan sites across Europe. It has in the region of 8,000+ locations that have met its standards. However, as ksebruce has mentioned - it also operates an off-season discount scheme at about 2,300 of the sites. There are three price bands, which this year are €12, €14 & €16 depending on the site. The price includes a pitch, two adults, an electric hook-up (min 6amps) and 1 dog.

    The discount scheme offers good value and great flexibility. No need to book in advance and stay as many nights as you want. :thumb:

    Discount guidebook is available from the Camping and Caravanning Club (and other places) and includes the membership card which has to be shown on arrival at each site.

    Highly recommended - there are many organisations/clubs/websites that wanted our money as new motorhomers, but ACSI was the one we went for. Saved us as much as £10 a night on low season rates [starting from as early as 25 August] one our recent first French tour.
