    The Camping and Caravan Club sites are cheaper both site wise and membership wise and if you are over 60 you receive a 30% discount on the adult price off peak not July and August. And they do a day rate of around £7 if you want to visit and service your motorhome.

    The Caravan and Motorhome Club have the more extensive site network and their sites can be cheaper when compared to competitor local commercial sites offering similar services.

    Both have apps.

    We use pitchup.com to find local sites in the areas we are interested in touring. Very often there is a club site in the area or a cheaper certificated site but not always in as convenient location as non club sites. Club sites can be a bit isolated when compared to other sites nearer centres of population. However we prefer to wild camp if possible when touring and only use sites every 3 or 4 days. We object to paying money for a muddy field with limited facilities which sadly many certicated sites are in out of season months. Club sites are nearly all hard standing.

    It’s pretty much down to where you are touring and whether there are suitable club sites in those areas. If there are then it’s worth joining. We are members of both clubs simply because they both have convenient sites in areas we visit a lot and we can get the full out door kit out barbie chairs table gazebo etc for the duration of a week or more on a site when we are visiting and not touring.

    PS for readers of this topic who are not full members of wildcamping.co.uk it is well worth becoming fully paid up members here to have full access to the database of POIs!

    We mainly use the CL Sites but we have been on the Club Sites as well. Nothing like a really hot shower with lashings of water when you have been been using the onboard facilities. We talked about what we are doing in the Spring and have booked a few CLs down in Devon and Cornwall. Some are full already over the Easter and May Bank Holidays. We have done a few trips to France and Spain but we do like the Uk. When you think how much it all costs it's certainly going to be cheaper staying in the Uk and with Brexit due who knows whats going to happen.

    safety net

    Been a member for two years and only used one CL site but still worth it. Sensible insurance discount, monthly magazine which is the usual format of adverts and a bit of interesting stuff plus a crossword. The main thing is when touring in the UK it is a great safety net if no wild spots are around or you want the showers, charging, filling and emptying time!

    They give a discount on ferries, which pays the membership fees.

    Many CL sites are closing down as the Caravan Club have increased their insurance rates drastically this year and the CLs are not making enough money to pay for the upkeep,

    The cl's are getting fewer and they are getting more expensive too. Some are £20 a night now.
    Such a shame...
    Having said that there are still some cheap ones without electric which is what we like when not wilding.
    We did find the cl's were cheaper than the c&cc club because the c&cc charge includes 2 children which we don't have!

    Caravan Club also do the reduced ferry fares which we use most years.

    Don't use the club sites much as find them crowded and rather precious...

    Camping and caravanning club for us BUT only use their small 5 pitch sites with limited facilities (don't want or need club houses, swimming pools etc...
    Price is usually less than a tenner on most of the ones we use...

    Won't have anything to do with the caravan club or whatever they call themselves these days...
    Far too many rules/regs and Nazi like site stewards involved for my liking.

    In the CCC and use their temporary holiday sites, frequently. I plan ahead and use them as a stopover from home to Dover
