The caravan club are now offering £120 worth of vouchers for every £100 you spend. This would be a significant saving if we bought £600 of vouchers it would only cost us £500 and that would pay for our trip in August/September if it goes ahead.

However, my husband wonít let me buy them as he thinks it is a sign of desperation on the part of the club and Indicates that they have a major cashflow problem and therefore might go bust and the vouchers become useless before we could use them.

Has anyone any thoughts?

I've bought £500 worth, so £600 actual value.

It is unlikely the club would go bust, but the naysayers think differently.

I'm happy to take the risk, which in my opinion is negligible.

The money I have saved this month on missed trips, diesel etc has paid for them in my case.

It will be interesting to see how many trips they will pay for once we are 'roaded' again.

It is interesting to see this new idea. I wonder why it has never been thought of before.

The club are not very forthcoming with offers for members so why now?

Look on the bright side - at least there's not much likelihood of an airplane crashing on your house.

I drive past Lockerbie regularly, I distinctly remember 21 Dec 1988 and passing the town on the way to visit relatives after Christmas was grim. Just a few more minutes in the air & Pan Am flight 103 would have come down near or on my own home or the homes of my friends. So I find that comment distasteful. Sorry about that. It's not that helpful to OP as it happens.

If you use Camping Club sites and the vouchers are not date dependant, it would seem a reasonable deal for you.

Apologies not meant to be disrespectful.

But -I've been a member of the Caravan Club for over 30 years I'v e always found the Caravan Club to be genuinely honest and helpful and not once in all those years have I had any any concern that anyone was being underhanded in my dealings with them and that they were not doing their job as a service to a member. So I was a little bit surprised,and annoyed that someone else thought that they might be otherwise.

It would be good if these could be used as a gift to friends who are also Caravan Club members. No good though, if like the Camping Cheques had, names of the purchaser on them.

Then why have the CMC changed the T&Cs for the vouchers twice. Go to the T&Cs and you may be disappointed at the new terms however if you do not like the new T&Cs you can send back the vouchers for a full refund plus postage.
