Camping franchise

Camping franchise

Anyone interested in franchising through The Camping and Caravanning Club can come along to our Discovery Day to find out more about what it involves to have a campsite franchise.

If, following the Discovery Day presentation, you contact us asking to proceed with your application, we will put in place a detailed assessment and review process aimed at establishing whether franchising through the Club is right for you and whether you are right for the Club.

The key stages for this process will be as follows:

Completion of the Full Application Form

You will complete our full application form detailing past experience and outlining the skills you will be bringing to the business, as well as your aspirations.

Criminal Records Bureau Check

We require each applicant to provide a full Criminal Records Bureau disclosure. There is normally a small charge for this report and it may take up to 8 weeks to receive.

Finance Check

After obtaining your authorisation for credit checks to be undertaken we will arrange for one of the leading credit checking agencies to provide a report on the financial history of each of the applicants.

Caliper Profile

We will ask you to complete an online personality profile. This will provide us with some background information on your personality and behaviour that we can explore further at our final meeting and use in developing your training and development programme should you be successful in acquiring your own UK campsite.

Home Visit

We will visit you at home at some stage throughout the recruitment process to ensure matters are progressing smoothly and provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.

First Impressions Visit

We will arrange for you to visit one of our existing franchise sites to be given an overview of what to expect from running your own site.

A time for reflection

In accordance with the BFA ethical franchising guidelines, we want you to carefully consider this proposition, noting there is still no obligation on either party. We strongly suggest that you seek guidance from a financial and legal advisor - preferably advisors affiliated to the British Franchise Association.

Final Meeting stage

We will review your experience, aspirations and provide feedback based on the above elements. You will have the chance to ask any final questions you have regarding franchising with us.


It's time for you and us to decide if franchising is the right move for both parties. We will make you a formal offer of a UK franchise and start developing a project plan and elements of training aimed at setting up and running your own camping and caravanning site.
