    Is it an initialism - Ay-See-Ess-Eye - or an acronym - acksee - or something else?

    Acksi for me although, strictly speaking, one does not pronounce an acronym. :)

    I struggle with this one as my IT background wants me to say is as askey (ASCII) - and I know it's wrong but I just can't erase years of my life!

    Every campsite we've been to - be it in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, Slovenia, Croatia, Austria, Germany, Italy, has asked us for our AckSee card!

    Me too, but if I'm not having a senior moment it's Aksi.

    I'm with AckSee, rather than AckSi, where I read "Si"' as it sounds in Simon :whistle:

    Whereas I think of the Spanish for yes.

    Each to their own, as long as the sites give the discount. :)
