The continued expansion and development of our site network has enabled us to continue to offer campers innovative new ways to explore the great outdoors in locations that are closer to home.
(PRWeb UK) November 4, 2010
As air safety and security issues and the rise in UK airport departure tax dominate the media spotlight, The Camping and Caravanning Club continues to provide the perfect alternative to holidaying abroad.
The Club offers campers the choice of 108 award-winning Club Sites, located in some of the UK’s most beautiful areas.
Additionally the Club has agreed to manage Forest Holidays Caravan and Camping Sites from March 2011, in a partnership with the Forestry Commission, adding an extra 5,522 pitches to the site network.
Currently, a family deal (two adults and up to four children – exclusive to members staying on a Club Site), costs, on average, just £17.50 per night for a standard pitch (mid-season).
Matthew Eastlake, the Club’s Marketing & Communications Director, said: “Domestic holidays remain a popular option, helped by the ever growing cost of air travel.
“In light of these uncertain times, we have frozen our site fee prices (excluding VAT) on all of our UK Club Sites for the first time in 10 years with the aim of providing an inexpensive, affordable way for both new and experienced campers to holiday.
“The continued expansion and development of our site network has enabled us to continue to offer campers innovative new ways to explore the great outdoors in locations that are closer to home.”
Bookings for 2011 open to Club members today (Thursday, November 4). The Club will also take bookings for Forest Holidays Caravan & Camping Touring Sites from this date.
