For quality assured camping, caravanning and motorhome holidays worldwide, the new, online one-stop travel-shop from Carefree, The Camping and Caravanning Club’s international travel service, is unbeatable.

The sophisticated, secure booking system can create inspired and dynamic packages to suit all the family. From camp sites in the Pyrenees to unique Club destinations like the Orkneys and Shetland Isles as well as travel guides and insurance, the hardest part is choosing between 230 camp sites in 21 European countries.

Carefree is so confident about their prices that they will guarantee to match or beat any ferry crossing quote provided by other travel operators. In its endeavour to provide the very best, effortless experience, it will also provide you with everything else you need so, when you click to book your holiday, you can also click on a range of other items such as phrase books, maps, hotels and even theme park tickets.

Carefree sends over 70,000 Club members abroad each year. New destinations for 2007 include Iceland and the Faroe Islands as well as fly-drive motorhome trips to America and Australia.

The Club’s Travel Services Director, Richard Grimsdale, says: “Carefree has, for over 70 years, had an unrivalled reputation for providing the best overseas holidays for all types of camping. So much so that it’s begun to provide Escorted Tours Europe wide on behalf of other organisations in the camping and caravanning industry.

Every site recommended by Carefree has been recently inspected by a member of the Carefree Sites Inspection Team so quality is ensured. What’s more, Carefree’s Travel Advisors, who are on the end of a phone, enjoy the same types of holidays and are able to answer questions accurately and with confidence.”
