I've discovered 'camping cards' but am a bit confused as to the who what wherefore of them (I'm not the sharpest tool in the the toolchest).

Which ones do you use or do you get all of them and use whatever is taken (Imay have answered my own question) :oops: :roll:

Or this sort of thing, Camping Card International

The former gives you a good discount at certain months of the year, at participating sites.
The latter also gives a discount, but can also be handed into camp site receptions in place of your treasured passports, and is available from the CC, C&CC, MCC, and the RAC, if members. The cost of which, is less than a fiver.

If we were to only have the one card, it would be this one.

HTH,

Both :!:

The ACSI card provides great value camping outside of the peak season - as little as 11 Euros for a pitch, two people and a dog, and electricity. The CCI acts, as Jock says, as an alternative to a passport and sometimes earns you a small discount.

If you are travelling through western Europe, especially France,out of the high season the ACSI card is essential.

If you get the book and the dvd then these give you very detailed information about the participating campsites, far more than any campsite book I;ve seen.

Last year we travelled through France and never paid more than €12 for a night with all amenities, although the prices for non-ACSI visitors ranged upto €32 for exactly the same facilities.

ASCI

Drop card in, no need for passports etc.

Great Savings, without haggling.
e.g.:

Beachside camping Cote D'Azur Campsite
Mid Season
2 Adults
6Amp EHU

Without ASCI Normaly €32 per night
With ASCI Card €15 per night

Great Value

Alos have others like the Scandinavian one but only ever use ASCI and unlike camping cheques, no payment in advance, running out of cheques. Cheaper too. But we still use Camping cheques when not ASCI

Hi Trev,

I wasn't aware that the ACSI card would be accepted at camp sites, in place of passports. 8O That is handy.

In Holland, they never asked to retain either the ACSI card nor passports. But then again, they are very pro-British anyway. :wink:

Cheers,

Jock.
