The benefits of joining the UK motorhome community
Counting down the days until you can head out on your next adventure is always exciting. Securing your membership in a motorhome club affords you the best selection of campsites, fantastic insurance offers, and a welcoming environment to make your holiday even more special.
Here’s what you can expect from joining the wider UK motorhome and caravan community:
Going on a motorhome holiday with a club membership under your belt comes with a variety of benefits. One of the largest and most respected communities of motorhome enthusiasts in the UK is the Caravan and Motorhome Club. Formerly known as the Caravan Club, this organisation constantly brings new offers to its members catering to a wide range of needs and interests. From saving money on vehicle inspections before your trip, to a site discount during your camping holiday, or 15 per cent off outdoor clothing brands, there are plenty of practical advantages to signing up.
The Caravan and Motorhome Club also provide members with discounted ferry crossings when traveling overseas, free cancellations and amendments to bookings and tours around the globe.
Exclusive campsites in the UK and abroad
Motorhome holiday parks are a huge part of the enjoyment of owning a caravan or motorhome of your own. Campsites scattered across the country and the wider world cater to motorhomes, but by joining a club you have access to the best venues around, including scenic views for rest and relaxation and top-quality facilities if you’re bringing the family.
With caravan sites located next to sleepy coastal villages, historic market towns and picturesque beaches, there are plenty of attractive options available for club members. Members of associations such as the Camping and Caravanning Club can even book these premium sites for up to 30 per cent off, and an extra 25 per cent off for over 60s. When travelling abroad, discounts on Eurostar bookings and Camping Card International (CCI) cards are available to ensure your arrangements run smoothly.
Aside from the financial benefits of joining motorhome clubs, there’s plenty of practical expertise on offer. For first time motorhome owners, this advice is an invaluable resource to guaranteeing your safety and maximising enjoyment for everyone. There are motorhome buyer’s guides detailing the various types of vehicles, checklists to carry out on your motorhome before setting off, and route planners to get you to your destination.
You can even take manoeuvring courses to help build up your confidence for long journeys in a relaxed, controlled environment. A major reason why motorhome owners love their vehicles, and their respective communities, is the friendly, welcoming atmosphere for every member, from newbies to veterans.
Great deals on insurance
Insurance is a vital aspect for owning a motorhome, and it’s crucial that you secure a policy that best suits you. Having a membership within a club can open up a range of specialist insurance policies that will leave you secure in the knowledge that your pride and joy is well looked after. Covering areas from breakdowns to vehicle insurance, and even camping insurance, you’ll have access to a number of first-rate insurance programmes.
Being part of a wider community
Of course, the main attraction of joining a club is the spirit of camaraderie and friendship. Rallies are hosted all over the world for members to attend along with their families, where you can make new friends and share your stories with likeminded people. With over 500 rallies hosted in the UK alone, there’s always an opportunity for good times among friends and family.
