Being encircled by a pride of lions whilst surrounded by your own home comforts is not something you would automatically expect from a camping holiday, or is it? Experts in worldwide camping adventures, Carefree, the overseas travel service from The Camping and Caravanning Club, now give you more holiday choices and ideas for campers in the 2008 Summer brochure.

Majestic South Africa is a new and exciting destination for 2008, so too is the land of lakes and forests – Sweden. These are in addition to an already extensive network of 230 sites in 25 countries which can be part of that Carefree adventure. On top of these, there are also escorted trips which, for some, take the hassle out of planning a camping holiday. Next year, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia provide the backdrop to an insightful Baltic States tour.

For those wishing to say closer to home, Carefree now has 120 sites in France alone, boasting 15 new sites available for the 2008 season. If you want to stay in one place for an extended time, rallies often provide an alternative side to where they are based; like the one being held in Picardy (4-18 June 2008) to commemorate 90 years since the World War 1 Armistice - it’s guaranteed to be a truly memorable experience.

From first timers to expert hands, Carefree is a one-stop-shop travel service which offers accommodation and advice to a significant number of campers every year. From ferry travel, camp site bookings, vehicle breakdown and travel insurance right down to maps and guide books can be organised. All of this, coupled with the Carefree price promise which guarantees to match or beat any ferry crossing quote provided by other travel operators on a like-for-like basis, guarantees a perfect holiday experience.

Peace of mind is assured with Carefree holidays. All sites are personally inspected by Carefree's dedicated sites team against standards agreed with The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Find out more about all of the above plus details on all world-wide Carefree holidays and benefits. Alternatively you can call our experienced and dedicated team on 0845 130 7701.
