    There's no easier way to find a site in a hurry and you've no internet. And maybe a cheap site at that. It's a real bargain.

    Does it show postcodes or GPS positions on DVD N&k?
    Does it cover the South of France?

    Hi Mark

    It definately has GPS positions as thats what we use, always accurate.

    Yes, south of france covered, it has a full zoom in/zoom out map, built in route planner and can filter on lots of different things, e.g. a site that takes dogs, pay with credit card, by the sea, open in winter etc etc etc

    I can check the DVD for postcodes if it helps?

    Hi everyone
    If I buy the ASCI DVD, does this include the card to get the low season discount rates at the sites that offer them, or do I need to buy the book as well,
    thanks

    Hi Violet

    As far as I know you have to buy them both. The Vicarious Books website states that the DVD does not come with the ACSI Camping Card.

    Hi,

    The DVD does not come with the Discount Card, albeit it does show the sites that accept the discount card, plus nearly 7000 more that don't accept the Discount Card, 8600 sites in total.

    You can purchase them separately as if you are only interested in the discount Card Sites then there is no need to purchase the DVD, just purchase the ACSI Campingcard which comes with a small book showing all the sites that it can be used at, with Lat/Long positions.

    You can search a similar way to the DVD on line at ACSI web site, so no need to purchase the DVD if you have a Internet link and use a Sat Nav as you can download the sites you have chosen direct to your Sat Nav for use.

    While the DVD is a very good campsite listing with some useful features, we have so many campsite type guides already and a 2007 version of the DVD that together with the ability to search the ACSI site online, I find it very difficult to warrant purchasing it.

    However the ACSI Campingcard is quiet another thing, it has been so useful and cost effective over the last 4 years I find it an invaluable accessory that i would not leave home without.

    Hope that helps

    I already have the ASCI book and discount card. Can anyone please tell me, if I do decide to purchase the DVD, can I use the search feature, within the search engine, to specify dates in the search to see what sites are availabe at the cheaper rates for a given area in France.

    Thanks
    Colin
