    So if you want to go to a C&CC rally abroad and you have already booked your ferries, you have to pay a £75 surcharge. A surcharge for NOT booking your ferry. For NOT doing anything. Apparently this is because they do not rake off the discounts they get from BF if they do book. But I thought they gave these discounts to you, the club member. That's what the adverts say.

    I met someone in Benicarlo in Spain who was on a C&CC rally who said this had happened to him. I'm sure it's legal, it just doesn't feel right to me. It's supposed to be a Club.

    It’s the term of their contract. It’s up to you whether you accept their contract.

    I could organise an event that is limited to only blue coloured Motorhomes. My event, my rules.

    Nothing illegal there.

    They caught us a few years ago, we still booked to meet friends but on our own we wouldn’t have bothered.

    You can still book the campsite independently rather than through the C&CC. That is what we did a few years ago (with ACSI discount rates) when we decided to visit my brother who was staying on their rally at La Manga. Mind you we only stayed a week, as that was about all we and our livers could stand!

    That's what I'm doing, and it is no dearer, either, plus you get a pitch with leccy and a private pitch not a rally field.

    True. Not truly a friendly club, is it?

    There are numerous members of the C&CC who live on the Continent.
    They don't pay the £75 should they wish to go on a Continental rally because they don't have to book a ferry.
    Now, if we could convince a Fun member who lives over the water to provide us with a Postal address, we wouldn't have to pay it either.

    There's a plan.:whistle:

    We wanted to go to one of their rallies in Portugal a few years ago and they wanted a £25 booking fee, so we went independently and got a much better pitch at a lower price.

    My SiL booked a number of sites through CCC: £75 booking fee.
    My other SiL then used the same phone call to book identical sites: another £75.

    They were not allowed to book 2 pitches at the same time.

    That's the rules - Gordon

    The C&CC continental rallies use normal pitches on commercial campsites, not rally fields.

    Associating friendship with money is never going to end well.

    Does that help?

    It was the fact I could get across the channel cheaper than using the CCC discount that finally drove us to leave the 'club'

    I'm a member of a fairly elite club, The Royal Alice Springs Surf Life Savers Club.
    Since the Club was founded no one has drowned in Alice Springs, that's a 100% record to be proud of. :hugs:

    I didn't know that virgins had a wine club of their own. How do you prove entitlement?
