    When you get the books the card is part of the cover of the First Part
    You have to buy the books to get the card

    Even if you have the APP you still need the card

    The card is available seperately. The books are apparently identical to 2018.
    I'm in Benidorm so thought someone may know where they are available. The accessory shop opposite Raco have them in but none in English yet.

    Have bought the card only many times. You don't need to purchase the books as well.

    Never bought the Acsi camping card other than in the book cover, however I have bought the Acsi ID card separately.
    The English version of the books should be in stock again at the Shop opposite Raco next week, but if you only need a card and the books are exactly the same as 2018 and you have an English set, then a German or Dutch version will do to get the card @ €17:95 and they are available in the shop.
    Cheers

    How much did you pay for that, and where did you buy it? On the ACSI site there doesn’t seem to be an option to buy just the discount card, the books are effectively free with the card, or vice versa if you like. As the others have said, the discount card is held in the cover of one of the books.

    On the ACSI site, one of the FAQs is “Is it possible to order the CampingCard-card without a guide” and the answer is “Unfortunately it is not possible to order the CampingCard-card separately from the guide”.

    SO are some people selling the cards and keeping the books for sale separately?

    That would seem to be one possible scenario.

    Is the OP confusing the ACSI member camping carnate card which is around €5 this is to use instead of leaving a passport with the site office whilst there?
    However I thought you had to apply to ACSI direct for this we have one every year and it’s done automatically after first time.
    You definitely have to buy the book for the discount card? I doubt ACSI would be happy if they find out.(n)

    Maybe people are confusing the discount card and the ID card.

    Correct.
    Thought it was possible to purchase them easily. Don't want to rock any boats so I'll just stick to my UK source

    This is the correct, when on a site in Luxembourg last year the reception wouldn't give the discounted price to a customer who showed the ID card, (looks like a credit card).

    Why would anybody want the guidebooks without the discount card? The books would be of little or no use whatsover - certainly no discounts available.
