Camping and Caravanning Club Privilege Scheme
Harrogate Motorhomes is delighted to offer all hire customers complimentary membership of the The Friendly Club for the duration of their hire period via the Club’s Privilege Scheme.
If you see the Camping and Caravanning Club badge, then you can be pretty sure the site will offer facilities of a certain standard and will be ready with a friendly welcome. The Privilege Scheme gives you access to over 100 award-winning Club Sites and 20 stunning Camping in the Forest sites, all in superb locations.
From March 2012, as a Harrogate Motorhomes customer you will automatically receive FREE temporary membership of the Camping and Caravanning Club for the duration of your hire from us.
As temporary members you are entitled to the Club Site discount of £7.10 per pitch per night or £3.50 per pitch per night at any Camping in the Forest Site.
- How does the temporary membership scheme work?
A Camping and Caravanning Club Privilege Pack will be included in your motorhome, including a book of all of the Club sites.
A special key fob is issued with each of our motorhomes; all you need to do is show it to the site warden when you arrive in order to claim you membership discount.
- Is there a temporary membership number? How do I book a site in advance?
There isn’t a temporary membership number, only the key fob, but you can still book sites in advance. You can use the “Find a Campsite” section of the Camping and Caravanning Club website to search and choose sites by location and/or facilities available. Rather than book through the site you can then contact the sites directly (or phone the Camping and Caravanning Club site contact centre on 024 7647 5426, or for Camping in the Forest sites 024 7642 3008) and explain that you will have temporary membership as part of the hire company’s Privilege Scheme. (The campsite staff can check that Harrogate Motorhomes are part of the scheme on their intranet database.)
A deposit of 25% is needed at the time of booking.
- Which Camping and Caravanning Club sites does the Privilege Scheme apply to?
The Camping and Caravanning Club, also known as “The Friendly Club”, will need no introduction to those already familiar with touring and camping holidays.
For the uninitiated, the brand has been carefully cultivated over many years to represent friendliness and quality and owners of sites have to work hard to ensure they meet the standards it represents. The organisation is the oldest in the world of its type and one of the biggest in the business, with over half a million members on its books.
Of course you don’t have to stay at Camping and Caravanning Club sites every night. There are a huge number of sites which are not members but still boast spectacular locations and excellent facilities.
We hope to be adding a directory of sites which have been recommended by our customers to our website soon, including dog-friendly sites, sites with larger pitches, sites with sea views, sites within walking distance of a pub…. the possibilities are endless. If you have any site recommendations you would like to add to the list then please do let us know.
