Camping and Caravanning Club £75 booking fee

I cannot believe that the CCC charge £75 to book one of their continental breaks!!!!!! How can they possibly justify that

Do you think you can just turn up and not pay booking fee

I believe there is no booking charge if you also book the crossing with them, I wouldn't pay it, book the site direct or don't book at all, lot's don't.

Why anyone would book a break with the CMC is beyond me, the prices they charge are ludicrous.

HOWEVER it's worth checking out the tours they offer and then booking direct with the various sites if you want to use their "recommendations" (or better still use ACSI)

I think it's bloody scandalous that ANYONE charges a "booking fee" they are getting my custom so why should I have to pay for the privilege of giving them my hard earned?? A reasonable deposit I have no problem with, but a booking fee is extortion!!

GMJ and GMJ like this.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Is that on top of the fee for the site?!

I'm on a CnCC rally at the moment and when I phoned to book I had to pay an extra £20 - because I'd already booked my crossing myself.

I usually check the different options for crossing so assume the CnCC wasn't competitive - but she said, next time ring us because we can price match.

Good to know.

Why do people feel the need to weigh in? If you don't like them that's fine, move on, you're not compelled to use them. I don't use them for foreign holidays but I'm a member of both Clubs and they are membership organisations, "owned" by the members and all profits go back into Club facilities. I've met people in Spain who do use them, go to their rallies and are delighted.

I felt the need to 'weigh in' to point out that there are other possibilities, not to criticise the C&CC or the CMHC, both of which organisations I have been a member of for more than 20 years, despite rarely using their sites or certainly never having been on a rally.

Family members wanted to tour together in May this year, staying on the same sites etc. Neither club could make a joint booking: it was a case of book one MH (pay £75) then book other MH (pay £75) and hope that there actually was a space remaining for the second MH whilst doing the deal 5minutes later.

It's not what I would have done!
