    If you have time, get yourself the camping cheque and book to go with it, also ACSI will save your self a lot of money, and have handy site books as well.

    Our minimal essentials, the ACSI discount card and DVD ( £23 ) and the CC Europe site guides ( I think £25 ish the pair ).

    We have a French aires book which does not impress us. I'll not mention names.

    The CC books are very well packed with European sites.

    I agree about the Alan Rogers book having just got back from 4 months in Europe mine went in the bin. The reviews are wrong in so many ways. Stick with ACSI and possibly any Caravan Club/C&CC books you can get

    here you go - Both are low/mid season discount schemes

    http://www.campingcheque.co.uk/
    with camping cheques you buy up front if you decide to get some the paper/silver card cheques last 2 years so you dont have to panic to use them and you can use them in the uk at some sites. If you get the gold card the cheques on it last 4 years

    http://www.campingcard.co.uk/gb/en/home/uc33-l2-n253/
    with acsi card you buy the book or book and dvd and in the back of the book is a card you show this card at the site reception when you arrive to get the discount
