Camping and Caravan Club ferry offers!!!!!!!

I am at bit confused as regards the CCC, I thought one of the reasons for joining is that they could get better deals on ferry crossings etc
I obtained a quote from CCC on line and they quoted (July next year) 106.52 Dover Dunkirk. Quote direct from ferry company same times etc 98!

Ferry Discounts

Here is the webpage that lists the fare deals available vis the CCC with various ferry companies.

Your experience with CCC is the opposite to ours for January/ March crossings 2013 using P&O.

What we did find was that it is cheaper to take the car off the A frame and pay for it seperately than to have it on the A frame and pay the extra for a trailer on the motorhome.

What I did was to find the best price with P&O, Dover crossing, took note of the times and ship.

I then rang the Camping and caravan club and told them what boat and what time and got a further 5 off the price.

Beginning of last month I checked the best price for the tunnel 48 hours ahead of our journey (yes, I know - it should have been booked much earlier - but for various reasons we weren't able to). Then phoned C&CC and said which crossing we wanted, and their quoted fare was about 12% less than booking direct - a useful saving.

DFDS have a policy where you can book a motorhome + toad as a car and caravan (up to 14 mtr total length). Last year we booked return to Dunkirk without the car for 74 (outward was Easter crossing ) then we decided to take the toad. Had I booked it as car and caravan, same dates the total cost would have been 69 so we added toad to crossing at no extra cost, but no refund either.
Try it.

Be seeing you! No. 6

We sailed from Portsmouth to Santander and back via Caen I shopped around because cc&c was too expensive then went back with a lower quote and the cc&c reduced the fare substantially. I'd advise anyone to shop around , same with Motorhome/ caravan insurance do like for like quotes don't presume the cc&c and the cc are the cheapest or the best they are now just running like big business's , as an example why has the Caravan Club spent members money and bought the Alan Rogers Travel co what benefit will it be to CC members ? cheaper holidays abroard I doubt it , you didn't have to be a member of any club to use Alan Rogers

Calais Dover Ferry Fare from CC

Just travelled back P&O Calais-Dover with MH +1 pax under 50 through Caravan Club compared to P&O 69/79 online best price.

Research before booking is the answer.

Please, can anyone tell me whether either of the club discount deals are available for Europe-UK-Europe or only outbound from UK?
