    It looks like Out and About Live are taking the pee somewhat

    Why ? Book in general camping, £42
    Book with a club, £45
    Then they very generously knock £2 off as your a club member

    Why should club members have to pay more ?? !!!

    Not sure on that John, I booked a few days ago and paid £38. (That is with the subscriber discount)


    I have not yet added my name to the list as there is not one. :rolleyes:

    Just checked and on one of the advert pages and the figures look to be reversed, if you actually go on the booking age they seem to be OK.

    My booking is for Thursday arrival £45, less £5 Subscribers discount, less £2 Fun membership = £38. :)

    Nope.. sorry
    If you book in the general section it is advertised as £42, IF YOU BOOK WITH A CLUB £45 !!!!

    You get the subscribers discount no matter where you book.. and yes, you get £2.00 for being a club member but if you book as a club member ( to reiterate ) the price is £3 more to start with !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mike, to take your example and to further labour the point..
    If you had used your subscribers discount and had not booked with the club, the total you would have paid is £37
    Because you booked with a club it is £38.00

    So far I have had no reply from them and if still no reply tomorrow I shall ring them and ask what is going on ?

    Warners don't give a flying fuc# for the paying public.

    They treat you like shit and expect you to be thankful.

    I stopped going to their shows for that very reason.

    Possibly its because we've joined a club
    rather than being independent that they assume that you want to be just with your club / friends but saying that if you arrive with company they will site u together
    in general camping but they won't keep
    Spaces . We've camped general can be great
    if like minded but last time brand new caravan to our door side and every time we were outside he can around and fiddled
    with his new toy I think he thought we
    might touch it in the moterhome behind they had 4 enormous hounds all they did was talk to dogs in loud voices so with a club maybe more likely to be more friendly just my thoughts. cost wise well clubs should be cheaper as they book and pay thus guaranteed attendance .

    John, I know it is wrong, I can see it is bonkers, but it is only a £1, who wants to stay in the sleep by 10 area when you can sing till 2am for just £1 more :D:D

    Just tried booking it but not completed as don't think we'll be here. It gave me £5 off for MMM subscription & £2 off for Fun. Works out at £38 arriving Thursday or £35 arriving Friday (£37 staying in General Camping).
