Thursday 16 October 2008

With more options and a vast range of winter destinations, Carefree International Travel Service are sending more campers abroad this winter than ever before. Advance bookings are a staggering 10% up on 2007.

Carefree, part of The Camping and Caravanning Club, offers Club members a huge choice of international holiday options, with fly-drive motorhome touring holidays to amazing locations including South Africa, New Zealand, USA, Australia and Canada. Available as an individual or group tour, these fly drives provide a lifetime of memories. There are also plentiful holidays closer to home, with Spain and Portugal affording travellers sun throughout winter months. Carefree will also be running their very successful Escorted Tour of German Christmas Markets this winter.

Carefree can organise as much or as little of your break as you wish. From organised tours to booking ferries, camp sites and vehicle breakdown insurance, the one stop shop approach means that you can feel secure on your chosen break, because Carefree are with you every step of the way. Carefree also promise to match or beat any ferry crossing quote provided by any other travel operators on a like-for-like basis.

Peace of mind is assured with Carefree Summer Camping 2009 and Carefree Winter Sun Camping 2008/09 holidays. All sites in these brochures are personally inspected by Carefree's dedicated sites team against standards set by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Chairman of the Club's International Committee, Chris Wells, told us: "Carefree is going from strength to strength in some of the hardest times for the tourism industry in decades. This is thanks to a mixture of great service, experience and knowledge from the Carefree staff, as well as competitive prices for campers.

“With a choice of breaks to suit every taste and requirement, you can create your perfect holiday with confidence.  Carefree will take the hassle out of having to piece together your holiday and provide a sterling experience, time after time.”
