We use the Caravan club for some Insurances, Eurotunnel bookings and Red Pennant. We also use their CL network. We are not too keen on their main sites as it's too much like caravanning in a car Park. But we do use Black Horse for their Ferry Pitches.
We use the Camping & Caravanning Club for Insurance and we use their main sites. Being over 55 we get the old fogies discount

We are with the C&CC club,and have used a couple of their sites, also hoping to try one of their temp holiday sites this year. Also insure the van with them. I've found people to be very friendly on club sites.

Not a member of any clubs We tend to make our own way round find a site and just drop in If it is full there is usually good advice from the site owers/wardens as to another one that will have space I have never had a problem doing this I dont do rallys as a rule not my thing So there for I cant really see thr reason for membership
But someone will expand on the benefits I am sure
Go on try to convince me

I'm with both the Camping and Caravanning Club and the Caravan Club, I prefer the C. & C.C. as the sites don't seem so regimented and the whole set up seems friendlier.
On my last trip to the Caravan Club site at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire, my daughter wasn't allowed to bring her car on to my pitch to unload the things she'd brought for my 15 month old Granddaughter as "You can't have two cars to one pitch!" apparently not even for unloading purposes, even though two pitches opposite ours had two cars parked on their pitches all the time, seemed a bit of a contradiction there!
We are with both, have used some main sites and cls with the CC, with the C&CC the best thing is the holiday sites, ok you need to use own facs at most of the tempory holiday sites, but you dont have to prebook and they are cheap. They usually run for a full month and its up to you how long you stay from a few days to a full month, are all over the country and are in areas with lots of things to do and are ideal if you have kids to amuse in the summer hols. Prices are usually per night per unit and are usually £5 - 10.00, some of the temp holiday sites are set up on proper sites so you have full facs and ehu these are usually a bit dearer but where else can you get a site in August for £15 a night for the van,family and dog, in a main seaside holiday destination where you have ehu @16amp, full facs, swimming pool, club house with entertainment,chipshop, supermarket and play area. I will be taking 2 of my grankids in August not decided which week yet though.
We have been with C&CC for years, but last year we joined the CC as well. We haven't used any CC sites as yet, but find C&CC tend to be friendly and of course you can collect the stamps in your passport for free nights.
