    That's the one we need. It'll pay for itself in just one or two nights, with a bit of luck.

    It depends when and where you are going - also type of site you prefer, we like Municipal sites in France but they tend not to join the discount scheme.

    Suggest you check the ACSI site and see

    we have a few favourites that take ACSI and a couple that accept Camping Cheques, and a lot more that take neither, but the savings can be up to several euros a night and you could come out well ahead on just 14 nights camping with judicious use of the card

    mind you - price of card has gone up quite a lot since we first used it

    Almost YES.

    The big discounts are off peak season so if you go at peak season all you are getting is a list of sites.

    Well it's only a tenner !

    That's the planner DVD, no discount card. You need both.

    The DVD program is really very good for the little they charge. I'll hang on 'till I can order both together, I have my flock to consider ( Sh$t, what have I done. Wife keeps asking that. It'll be great I keep telling her, it'sa Italia, that have to like it or we get Valentino of the Cosa Nostra to do his thing on the exit to the motorway tunnel )

    :thumb::thumb:We always use the CC ASCI discount at our last site outside Paris in September we paid 31.80 euro for 2 nights inc local tax , but a Dutch couple in front of me paid 52.80 euro for 2 nights without the CC ASCI card so as you can see it soon pays for itself on your 1st stopover we have used the CC ASCI card for the last 3 years all over France and stopped on some really nice sites combined with using aires its a very cheap and pleasant way for Motorhoming:thumb::thumb:

    Acsi

    My advice is YES I have both but don't travel on the continent June-July. The ACSI is for discounted rates OUTSIDE the summer months i.e. when the sites are little used and to encourage you to use them. CCI is useful for sites that are NOT part of the ACSI deal:thumb:

    they are really quite different - although you can get a discount at some sites when you produce your CCI card. They are issued by member groups and provide a degree of insurance on site, can hand them in as a substitute for your passport at 98% of sites. They are more of an id card and give passport details.
    ACSI card only really relevant at participating sites, but you complete the details yourself and so could contain incorrect name and address details eg nothing to stop you entering chas windsor of nobs palace :Rofl1:

    we use both

    Ah, that one.

    I got one last year and we left it and the ACSI card at home.

    We just did Hinton Lock and left the bike batteries at home.

    But best of all, year before, we got near Stanstead and I was picturing walking into the ferry terminal and paying for a change of sailing times and the picture went all wrong - "Where is my coat with the money and credit cards ?"

    You guessed :Doh:

    Each to their own but personally I think the guide is a waste of money. The DVD on the otherhand is well worth buying, very comprehensive, lots of detail, and of course includes GPS to each site. It also covers a far wider range than the guide.

    Vicarious books sell the DVD at £12 or you can buy the same thing direct from the ACSI website at £10.50.

    Better still......look out for an ACSI inspector on any site you are staying. They carry a boot load of the damn things around, and I bought my 2009 DVD for just a fiver. They also carry more detailed ACSI guides which are not sold on either the ACSI website or at Vicarious Books.

    Note.....Just realised it wasn't five quid i paid for my DVD, it was five euro so even better!

    Ere, you windin me up. You want me to go round tapping people on the shoulder saying "You are an ACSI inspector and I claim my €5 DVD"

    Now I've got visions of Basil Faulty when he was trying to spot the inspector.

    Hi,
    The clubs in the Uk only provide the CCI for 1 year, but it appears ADAC have an option for either 1 or 3 years at 6€ and 15€ respctively, has anyone purchased one from ADAC

    Nope......and I didn't even have to go looking, they actually came to me!

    I was on a site near Weimar in Germany and an ACSI inspector was staying on the same site. They go around to other campers asking if they will agree to answering a few questions about the site in general, but she introduced herself to me by asking if I had the ACSI Camping guide book. I told her I had bought a current one just before leaving the UK and thought it was a waste of money. Thats when she showed me the DVD. Even told me to try it out first as she wasn't sure if it was in English (it's in several languages actually). Soon as I had it loaded in my pc I could see immediately it was much better than the guide book so they sold it me for five euros.
