Member of both too but apart from a cs for the NEC recently we haven't used the C&CC for maybe 3 years simply because the CC have had the sites where we wanted to go.

I'm tempted to join c&cc purely for the Brittany ferry discounts, however I'm sceptical if you actually save money.

Most cl's we've stopped on don't seem to mind if you are members or not

We're members of both because they both have sites in convenient locations for us.

Been motorhoming for 15yrs.had an American RV for 7yrs,Now got a Niesmann Bischoff Arto 88F
Just left the CC because felt they are overpriced and consider motorhomers as second class citizens, miss the CLs a bit. But don't like their overbearing attitude.
in all the years we have been caravanning and motorhoming we have never come across those type of attitudes,we have always been made to feel welcome even when we had our RV,s.

Hi, we joined the Caravan Club at one of the motorhome shows, cost £44 but we got 2 free night vouchers and used them at York which would have cost us £46.70…....….bargain £2.70 for joining. :eek:
The C C web site is better, their book is better and they have more 5 van sites, and when ever it said full on line, a phone call and they got us in.:LOL::D

The C and C club although they have out priced the club sites, you have the THS and 5 van sites also some good da meets at the weekends where you just turn up.

:) Bob.

Will probably join both for our first year. Mainly for the CS/CL sites. Not too convinced about their 'discounts' - they probably start at a higher price for some stuff (e.g. Sat Nav 'special' deals) anyway. Has ANYONE seen Virgin wines for sale without a 50% discount? :D
As far as we're concerned we need to calculate the best deals for large families. Those midweek, over 60, child free discounts on tranquil adult only sites will just have to wait.:ROFLMAO:

I'd say pretty good if you use their nightstop scheme. One place even let's you use their spa facilities for a fiver! Yea gods, hubs and I have to part with nearly £100 p/m for that, and the kids are extra. :eek:
Must be some catch, you know like Hotel California, or maybe The Twilight Zone? ;)

Been a member of CC since 2002 and no real problems. There are some site wardens you'll have to take with a pinch of salt as they can be morose. However they are in the minority s most are welcoming and the sites are well cared for. The facilities even on CL's are also good

many many years! since I was a kid
have been on a couple of cc sites during an inspection, with at least one of them being an unannounced visit. if the site facilities or wardens don't pass muster, there's hell to pay. wardens will be disciplined or even dismissed for failing an inspection. therefore you will find most sites well presented and the wardens helpful if asked

We've used them a lot this year. Joined in June last year but, for various reasons, never got away with them until May this year but since then we've been to 7 weekend meets, a THS, CL and Nightstop - with a friendly welcome at every one. Very similar to our experience with the C&CC.

We have used them a lot this year. I like the fact that you can book with no deposit and have upto 72 hours before to cencel. They are all lovely aend clean well laid out and in great locations. We have a 14 year old and just spent 2 nights at Longleat and 3 nights in Cheddar. Couldn't get much closer to the entertainment. :)

We joined for convenience to get discounts also if asked are you members of cc you can say yes I think that gives reassurance if you are trying to buy insurance etc.

Some years ago, we applied for a Ferry Discount, to be told Caravans ONLY.. I was then told by a prominent official " After all it is the CARAVAN CLUB" , I took great enjoyment in telling the Officer to stick his Club where the 'Sun don't Shine' That was after 20 years a Member.

We are members of CC and currently pitched at Culloden just outside Inverness, very quiet just now and only £14 for the night for two adults and elec can't be bad at that.

We joined only for the CL's and the insurance (it was the best for our needs this year). The main club sites are very clean and tidy if you need to be on a big site (we don't).

Value for money? Difficult to answer, I don't think their club sites are good value at all.

For us the ideal CL is cheap as chips and without leccy etc ....... £5 good........£10 if no other choice. We have no need for any facilities at all so prefer not to pay for them given the choice.

Will probably still join next year but only for the CL's.

Now if only we had Aires like the French do...:whistle:

We are in both clubs. Much prefer the caravan club sites as the standards are much higher.just come off Stonehaven site at £16.20 per night for immaculate facilities . Only use the c@cc for the local groups.

They don't own any sites but 0rganise regular camping meets wherever they can arrange. Mostly non EHU but usually provide water and waste facilities.

The caravan club for me

The other lot are not geared up enough for motorhomes. Caravan club has waste point, water and elsans in variousl places but the CCCusually only has one or two and if your on the other side of the site you are in for a lug of your tank.#

CC let you choose a pitch whereas the CCC select your pitch for you
I found I wasnt using their sites because they are just not geared up for us

The local CCC site in kidderminster finished me when they put me on sloping grass and i got stuck.
Didnt renew that year
