Think it's about time we joined a club. Now I don't want to open a can of worms regarding which is best, but which one is ?..

The best points of each club would be very much appreciated. Thanks. :)

Look in the Clubs section and you will find it is discussed often.

Why don't you join both for the year try them both out and make your own mind up, after all we are all different in our likes/dislikes. And you may be given advice from this forum that is not to your requirements.

 

I have visited sites which have been given good ratings only to find them poor to what I preferred.

Tis a personal choice - I was in both but dropped the CC&C. So I'm with the CC.

I prefer their sites but heaven help us if everyone thought the same as me!

 

And topic moved to Clubs & Associations.

As WispMan says a personal choice we are members of both clubs as some areas there club sites by one and not the other and it expands the amount of small 5 van sites (cl or cs) we can use. We also use commercial sites so we have lots of sites to chose from.

I don't think you'll regret it. I'm a member of both and use both. ..insurance, sites, rallying. We switch and use as the mood takes us.

Caravan Club (CC) has about 220 of it's own sites with about half open to members only and over 2500Cl's ( small 5 five van independant sites of variable standard licensed by the club for members only ) , the standard of it's sites is consistently high over the whole network, it provides every service that a caravanner could need and all the services are comparable with the best of service that you can find anywhere. When you arrive at a club site you book in and pay your fees, no deposits are taken so the whole fee is paid at this time, you are then given information about the site and are told to go go and have a look at the pitches available ( all empty pitches are available ) choose one, set up and then let the wardens know where you have gone. Should you decide for whtever reason that you need to leave before the date that you have paid till, you can inform the wardens that you are leaving and if you do this with 72 hours notice you will receive a refund of all fees for the days that you have paid for but will not be staying for. if you do not give notice you will be charged one nights fees unless you are moving on to another club site when the charge will be waived.

 

 

 

Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) has about 110 sites of it's own a handful (6 at the last count ) of which are members only and a network of about 1500 CS's ( like CL's ), the standard of the sites over the whole network is of a more variable standard with the best sites comparing favourably with the CC sites. It also provides a full range of high quality services for the caravanner that are just as good as those provided by the CC. When you arrive at a club site you book in and pay the remainder of your fees ( a deposit will be taken when you book which if you cancel more than 7 days in advance you get back, within 7 days you lose ), the warden will decide where you are to pitch and will escort you to it and ensure that you have pitched precisely as he requires. Should you need to leave for any reason the fees that you have paid will be forfeit ( though in some circumstances by special request to head office giving circumstances and doctors notes be placed on account for you to use in the rest of the year )

 

 

 

I have been a member of the CC for 22 years and have never regretted it, I have been a member of the CCC on two occasion in the last four years and have on both occasions resigned it just did not suit me. I know of a lot of people who like and use the CCC so I would suggest that it is worthwhile joining both clubs and seeing which one suits your purpose best

Thanks for the replies folks, I'll take your advice and join both for a year and then decide. .. :)

Sound choice. ...

Then there is the hoary old question of rallying. DA meets for C+CC members, Centre meets for CC.

DA meets, less formal no need to book in advance, except when advertised as special events, CC Centre meets, book in advance line up in nice straight lines. Good luck, we joined both 30 odd years go, opted for the less stuffy "Friendly club" SUITS US, MIGHT NOT SUIT EVERYONE.

People should be aware that many of the alleged CC sites listed in their handbook are NOT CC sites at all. They are private commercial sites each with their own set of rules and are called Afilliated Sites.

We are long time members of both clubs and generally find the standards are pretty much even between them.

For anyone desperate for an "All Singing All Dancing" busy site the CC generally comes out on top.

But otherwise there is nowt to choose between the two organisations.

Like others the CC sites have always with one exception (moorhampton) been of a high standard

C & CC have been more variable. I don't think they invest in their sites and keep them up to the same standard.

Incidentally C & CC don't own all their sites. Some are franchised. Not sure how many or which they are.

A quick count shows 46 affiliated sites for the CC. We have used one and weren't particularly impressed as it was more expensive than a CC site and less well equipped.

 

The CC says they are to fill geographical gaps which seems fair enough although I would prefer them to set up their own.

For me with a larger unit, it caused so much hassle with the CC, I cancelled my membership

 

Just stayed at three different CCC sites this week, no issues, no one telling me exactly how to pitch, lined up with a marker etc.

 

CCC for me.

It's an uncharted sea, it's an unopened door but you've got to reach out and you've got to explore.

Were in both clubs but prefer the C. C as there site facilities tend to be of better quality than the C&CC .
