Rather than Camping Cheques , buy the ACSI book which comes with a card that gives you fixed prices at 100's of Continental campsites mainly French. It gives price per night per campsite, I think this year it was 11/13/15 euro and it for use in low/mid season not high season.

CC's you buy upfront so you are paying for campsite per night in advance. ACSI card you buy the discount card for about 15 & then pay for campsite at discounted price as you go. Both will give you lower campsite cost than turning up & paying but can only be used out of high season ie not usually Jul/Aug.

How much you save depends on campsite, some charge much the same out of high season than CC or ACSI so best advantage is usually on the more expensive campsites.

You can only use campsites that are in the respective schemes though & a guide book is available for either or just refer to websites.

Read their websites. Google Camping Cheques & ACSI.

If you decide that camping cheques are for you, I have some for sale. Please have a look at my ad in the for sale section. I also have the guidebook available.

It`s always been ACSI for me. I paid 10.30 euros this year, including the downloadable app, and just on the site I used in Germany last week the card saved me 16 euros a night.

I have looked up camping cheques and looked at the maps where they take them I presume the cheque covers the nights stay.

You get both, it is daft to have just either/or.

Some sites take both and you will then find that Camping Cheques are cheaper at 16

ACSI has some cheaper sites at 13 and 15 but also quite a few at 17 and 19.

Also look at municipal sites that can cheaper and bettter.
