No go to the CC shop and you can buy a Sainsburys pre paid card and say you buy £100 worth of value on it they charge you £96. Adds up if that is where you shop.

Both the C&CC &the CC have a range of discount partners but the CC have over 50. Worth looking at the CC website to see the whole range under 'offers and deals ' including details of the Sainsburys deal

I (suppose like a lot of others on here) got an email from the C&CC asking me to complete a customer satisfaction survey on my MH. Now I could be wrong (yes, it has been known biggrin), but this appears to be nothing more than a marketing exercise by the club, their insurance and Haymarket magazines. It opens by asking for details of current insurance cover and finishes with complex information about the privacy policy of each of the partners. 

I would have been willing to provide information to a proper survey on Motorhome ownership if it had the purpose of informing owners, potential owners, dealers and manufacturers. What I'm not going to do is have my inbox, letterbox and phone used to provide me marketing information from their "carefully selected partners" (read, anyone willing to pay for the data  rolleyes )

Spot on Tony. That was precisely my conclusion as I binned the email.

Pretty obvious isn't it. shrugg

II've been a member of both clubs for several years and have experienced pros and cons to each of them.  My favourite (fairly local) site is the C&CC Derwentwater (Keswick) club site, which is less than 2 hours from home, is a superb location for mountain and kayak access, as well as the outdoor shops and dog friendly pubs within walking distance. 
A couple of years ago I was participating in the C&CC online forum, when one of the Admin Staff started calling Motorhome users who also turned up on site with a car (driven, not towed) and judging them as wasteful !!
It just so happened that at the time I had been in Preston with work, in my car and the return home coincided with a week away in the Motorhome. It made perfect sense to us, for my wife to bring the Motorhome across from Durham, with the kids and me to drive the few miles north, to meet up for a week in the van, rather than them wait at home for me, and me drive all the way home, just to park up and return in the van.

She wouldn't accept my reasoning that there are many varied reasons for this type of touring, nor would she have any of it, disputing the fact that this was a one off for us, believing we had driven over from Durham in convoy. 
Even if we had, just exactly what business was it of forum admin ??

I was not inspired to renew my membership after that and now I'm only a CC member.

Spot on again Tony. What got me it was the first question!  Just a marketing ploy. I sent an email in response saying I would have expected better from them. No doubt it was to an address that was not monitored but I felt better!

Oh yes, in no uncertain terms  hugegrins

That was just the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back, on top of minimum night stays and regimental warders complaining about 6" of my Freestander awning overlapping the edge of the hard standing, quoting minimum distances. I invited them to grab a tape measure and take a walk through the camping field with me, where their rule was blatantly overlooked !

I felt the same with the first question but gave them the benefit of the doubt until their " try and opt out" bit at the end, it confirmed the real purpose of the exercise. I have also emailed the club about it, it will probably get binned but hey ho  Whistle1
