Search Press Releases

Tuesday 16 February 2010

If escaping to warmer climes is what you are after this summer, then The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Carefree Travel Service can provide you with everything you need for that special adventure.

The Club’s Summer Camping 2010 brochure is packed full of hand-picked European sites with six new additions in different destinations.

Five of those new sites are situated in particularly beautiful locations in France - just by Mont St.-Michel in Normandy, overlooking Jersey and Guernsey on Normandy’s Cotentin Peninsula, at the up-market Breton yachting resort of La Trinité-sur-Mer, on the Charente-Maritime coast in France’s south-west and at Sampzon in the heart of the Ardèche gorges.

Another new site is in Duinrell, which is within walking distance of the attractive village of Wassenaar in The Netherlands.

Duinrell is much more than just a campsite with its own amusement park, pool complex and themed restaurants.

There is also information on The Club’s popular rallies together with the camp site information about the sites where they are held.

Travel Services Director Richard Grimsdale said: “There is just so much to choose from in our Summer Camping 2010 brochure as we continually look to refresh our summer programme.

“No matter how near or far from home you choose to travel, you can trust our tailor-made insurance, maps and guides, local knowledge and advice.”

All travel arrangements made with Carefree have not only the backing of The Club, but are ABTA (The Association of British Travel Agents) and ATOL (Air Travel Organiser’s Licence) protected too.

For further information please telephone 0845 130 7701 or 024 7642 2024 or visit The Club website.

The Summer Camping 2010 brochure, which also includes information on rallies and worldwide travel, is free to members.
