I think this has got off topic a bit, I can understand the OP point for this reason

I have joined the CC this year and one of the main reasons is because there is a CC site I would like to go to. However I am not aware how the booking system works, a month or so ago I went on to book; every single weekend in the summer and all of the school holiday dates are fully booked. I'm shocked, is this usual and due to the fact you can book without the need to pay a deposit so can subsequently cancel (short notice or not) with no consequences???

How far in advance do the sites become available? Does everyone just book right at the beginning so all the popular sites / dates go?

Like I've previously stated, this forum is very much the Caravan Club Appreciation Society, so there's little point saying anything against them.

I've had my experiences with the club, their sites & many of their members. That was enough for me.

We all look for something different in our caravan holidays. Personally I much prefer to use my own toilet & shower in the 'van, so facilities are of little consequence.

I'm glad we're not all the same, but I do feel like independent sites get run down far too often on these pages, so therefore I feel it's important to provide a balanced view.
I was also under the impression most club site showers were now push button? TBH I've only ever come across one independent site with push button showers, but that was when I was tenting, so had to use site facilities.

(also, you CC members are far too easy to wind up - the wink emoticon means I'm joking, of course)



Push Button Showers are the trait of the C&CC NOT the C.C
but then that does not bother you since your happy to lug water back and forward so you can shower in your own van not all of us want to do that
And if site's with JUST acceptable facility's are all you want that your prerogative   , but some of us have higher standards and expect better .
perhaps you could enlighten us why your Anti-Club or is it the the rules and regulation's which are in place for everyone's benefit that you dislike .

Come on guys stop taking the bait, clearly this guy had a few drinks last night and got a bit bored on his 'Proper tourers site' and fancied a complete wind up here.. I'll have to go now I'm at Chester CC at the moment and I feel an uncontrollable urge to twitch my curtains and add todays new arrivals to my 'Compare caravans' notebook...

When will the caravan club sort out last minute cancelations? It is driving me mad, we looked to try to stay at Sheepcote for this weekend (as Wife is at a party in brighton on the saturday night and then a nice dayout for sunday)

for the last 2 weeks they have been fully booked, we even called up and the wardens were surprised to see that they woudl be fully booked.

So we have had to make other arrangements, and not go camping, but i have been watching the availability twice daily for the last 2 weeks, and low and behold now, at 4:30pm they have availablilty for the whole weekend - bit late to travel now as I cancelled my half day today instead of going home to pack and go.

I am furious, and this isn't the first time, i know it's a Tactic to go on and book all the good sites and then cancel if the weatehr is not nice, but it's ridiculous. and The caravan CLub lose out.

 

The need to introduce cancellation fee's, or even pay up front.

I know they are warning people with a couple of strikes and then your warned etc, but will that change anything?

 


Why are you presuming it was a cancellation. Somebody could easily have left early and made the pitch vacant.

Stop moaning about the Club. If you don't like the system then leave. Suits me!

Hahahaha I've had a good giggle at these posts. Im with the cc & defo not a curtain twitching, caravan comparing snob lol! Now I'll tell you what I like about the club sites. I know I will have a peaceful nights sleep. There wont be inconsiderate campers sat outside their vans at 1am talking loudly. It's doubtful that I'll have 2 face someone else's remnents in the toilets & I know I'm going to have a cosy decent shower. I've never found anyone snobby & most people smile & say good morning to me. I've only ever felt uncomfortable on 1 site & that was Stover. I just felt that people were looking down their nose at my kids who I felt I had to keep shush'ing while they were playing outside. I do use independent sites too but I choose them carefully by reading reviews on here first.
