Caravan and Camping Are a lot more welcoming than Caravan and Motorhome Club. We have been members of both for many years and it is sometimes useful when touring the UK to have a choice of sites. However we do use the Red Pennant Travel Insurance with the Caravan and Motorhome Club when we tour abroad, which is most years! So expensive but belt and braces for reassurance.

We use caravan and Motorhome club for ferry booking, we use the Hull Zeebrugge ferry so any saving is welcome, saved about £100 this trip.

The Camping & Caravanning have a veteran status and you can get considerable discounts when you are over 65 having had a number of years membership which I forget. The Caravan & Motorhome Club have no such thing and they have a stupid system whereas on or about 1 December they open bookings for the next year and all the good bits sell out yet they take no deposits so people book loads, don't attend and others have missed out. They refuse to change it - quite ridiculous! We belong to both but the Caravan & Motorhome club is now almost as expensive as commercial sites and very picky about behaviour, pitching up etc. 1 night at Moreton in Marsh in the Cotswolds cost us £35.60p for motorhome and 2 people with no dogs, no awning, no trailer and no extra car.

We joined the CCC solely for the RAC Arrival membership as they give the cover we need which is unavailable from RAC direct. We don't use sites, so can't comment on that side of things.

CCC - purely for the Temporary Holiday Sites and club meets. Caravan and Motorhome Club does zilch for Motorhomes.

We are in both clubs, each as good/bad as the other. Depends whether you'll use their sites and/or services. Membership is inexpensive.

We've been with Camping and Caravan Club for years but only joined the Caravan and Motorhome Club last year. As we're planning on doing a bit more of the UK this year we've decided we'll join CMC next year but probably won't rejoin the following year.

CCC we use mainly for the DA meets and THSs.

Define FLT please Jim.

I believe the term FLT was first used by @weejocky ..

in this thread https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/wild-camping-not.28340/

I refer you to this thread where it was defined and discussed at great length.... https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/flts-why.185099/page-4#post-3042924

My view is this, and I quote the words of our leader from that thread...

Over time it has become a term of endearment and not really taken serious at all:D . I'm sure no malicious intent is ever meant when referring to other Funsters.

As I’ve stated before I’m more than happy to pay to park overnight, just not on campsites.

If the choice is an aire/car park location or a cheaper campsite I’ll take the tarmac every time. Bruges is an example. The aire is more expensive than the municipal campsite but it wins hands down every time.

If being happy to pay to park overnight, even if it’s not the cheapest option, in my choice of location makes me a FLT then I’m happy to be described as such.

If however you were attempting some sort of dig because I choose not to use campsites I’m sorry to say you’ve failed. Again. Just like every similar attempt fails. (y)

Do Tesco have stores in Europe? You are still able to change a return crossing for a very small charge so still worthwhile.

Only if you book a return & the journey has to start in the Uk:(
We used the Camping and Caravan discount this year for the Eurotunnel.

Didn't book the return until we were ready whilst still in France with no problems.

Not any longer, they allow you to book 12 months in advance now. So I imagine no longer the free for all in dec
