Default Somewhere warm late September/October France (or maybe Spain)

It looks like we can't get away this year before 21 September. Can anyone
suggest somewhere with a caravan site where we might get some sun and warm
weather. Ideally by the sea but would consider inland if the scenery was
great, main thing is the weather. The other problem I foresee is that most
sites close by the end of September but I know of some Camping Cheque sites
are open later.

Any ideas please.

When you go to the site www.acsi.eu you'll find 8600 campsites all over
Europ. And with the CampingCard ACSI you get discount on 1601 campsites in
18 countries (you pay 11, 13 or 15 Euro per night. The card and the book you
can order from the same website. This system is 200% better then the camping
cheque

Luck,


Harry

I agree with Harry's suggestion but unfortunately the ACSI Card and site
directory has sold out for 2009. People have even been selling them on
e-bay! You could try and source the ACSI Campsite Guide from Europe which I
understand also contains the Card. We are also away until the middle of
October which is something new for us having previously only been in France
as late as mid September.

Thanks for the heads-up on the ACSI card. I have been in touch with ACSI
and they will supply card with guide in German and a DVD is available in
English so that may be the answer. I have gone back to them to see if
French version is available as I can understand French OK, but not German.

So, once I have paid the one off payment for the card, which seems to be
around 12 per annum is there any further payments to make to use the card
on sites? Is it just a case of showing the card at ACSI member sites and
paying the 11, 13 or 15 Euros. Are there any other charges or catches.
Perhaps I am being cynical but just want to know so I can finally decide to
abandon the Camping Cheque idea as this seems the best way to go. If the
choice of sites is a wide as it seems I cannot see how Camping Cheques can
survive as it now costs 13.40 (11.95 plus a 1.45 currency surcharge) per
one night's campsite fees for two with a caravan. So at ?1.15 exchange rate
is ?15.41 per night. Higher than the maximum on the ACSI scheme.

Regards

It is realy as simple as that. No extra costs are involved, except the local
tourist taxes. For the next year the choice in the UK and Ireland will be
much more as it is now. The camping owner pays for the advertising in the
book and get the money directly from the camper. ACSI is a publishing
company, specialised in camping for almost 45 years.
Sorry to tell you that I have at least 10 books in the English language.
(I'm one of the inspectors in the UK) When anybody is interested, give your
e-mailadress and I contact you. And for everybody who start using the card:
Have a nice holiday.

I don't know if you contribute to UKCampsites but several people there seem
to be wanting ACSI Cards, even stories of them being sold on E-Bay! I think
you could find a ready market for your books.

I think that also you could, as I said in my earlier post, buy the German
book, which I believe comes with a card, and also buy the DVD which has the
information I English. May be a bit dearer than if the English book was
still available from ACSI but may be cheaper than eBay. Details can be
obtained about the German card by sending a message via the "Contact" link
on the Website or link to
http://www.campingcard.co.uk/gb/en/c.../uc33-l2-n336/ They will mail the
German book out with the DVD and send an invoice which can be paid to their
UK HSBC account. The price is GBP 15.50 for the guide and GBP 8.50 for the
DVD
including air-mail costs.
