    CC and CCC. And Britstops.
    Likely to join MCC as well, based on FUN recommendations.
    The fees not only save you money when camping, but also get rather lost in the grand scheme of motorhoming. If you want to use sites, seems to me that not joining is false economy.

    Just been away for 24 nights, used private, BritStop, CC, CCC, CL, CS & Camping in the Forest sites. Variety is the spice.....

    I had the same dilemma.
    I've joined Caravan Club purely because it has 2500 CL's as opposed to CC&C's 1800
    I bought the BritStops book because I like the idea.
    I've also joined Historic Houses Association (thanks to a recommendation on here) as it has more properties than NT (and certainly more locally).
    So, that'll do for one year, can switcheroo next year if I want.
    Also, this Caravan Club got 25% discount on HHA & 10% on Insurance so its all good

    We are in them all but CC is good for the ferry from Hull as @Hotelman points out, MCC is also good for weekend meets at short notice as you dont need to book many of their events so good for people like us that cant make a plan.

    CCC is fine for the Arrival breakdown, but the CC are a bunch of prejudice malcontents which when as a US RV owner reading their forum posts convinced me to cancel my membership without even using a site!

    Abandoned the CC in favour of Britstops. CC = £40+ a caharge per night and in effect Britstops is half the price and suits our travels better. Anyhow I like Steve's sweets better.

    Caravan Club - Easy online booking if we choose to use them for Ferries. Right up-to last minute. We rarely stay in the UK

    Good Luck

    Been member of CC for 35 years, don't ask me why, they are dear for insurance and breakdown service, cannot always stay at there sites because someone has booked in and does not turn up, charge more for Int. camping Carnet, their magazine is not really worth reading, they appear to be a hard nosed business rather than a members club, they take too long to answer the phone, will say their staff are helpful.
    But have joined for another year as they might be useful sometime.

    None.
    I wouldn't join any club that would accept me as a member.
    There is no need to be restricted to 'club' sites.

    Don't waste your money, go to France/Germany, much better Aires and Stelplatz systems and far cheaper than rip off Britain.
    Sounds like a rant don't it..:whistle:
