The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Winter Sun Camping 2009/10 guide is now available.

Carefree Travel Service’s definitive guide to camping, caravanning and travelling to Winter Sun destinations, this year features a new 23-night escorted tour of Morocco, scheduled for March 2010.

The tour will start in Spain and later take in iconic Moroccan landscapes and sights, including the Rif and Atlas Mountains, the Saharan Erg Chebbi sand dunes and the Kasbahs, souks, and backstreets of Marrakech.

The guide also contains new and extended rally sites in Spain and Portugal, as well as ideas for a warm winter in Florida and the southern hemisphere.

Travel Services Director Richard Grimsdale said: “The guide is once again packed full of ideas and helpful hints for camping and caravanning abroad for the coming winter season.

“And that total flexibility offered to members is the key to Carefree as we promise to put together that holiday of a lifetime.”

To order your copy of the guide, which costs £10, call Carefree on 0845 130 7701 or 024 7642 2024. The £10 will be refunded if a holiday is booked from the publication.
