The Caravan and Motorhome Club is offering its members more adventures than ever before with the addition of 16 new sites and eight ski sites for 2018, taking the total number of its European sites to more than 300.

The new sites are located in France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland and Germany, meaning no matter what adventure you’re looking to have, the Caravan and Motorhome Club has the right site for you.

Why not go wine tasting in France, relax on a Spanish beach, or how about soaking up some culture in the Netherlands? Alternatively, you could explore the natural beauty of the Emerald Isle, enjoy Italy’s excellent cuisine, indulge in the best beer and chocolate in Belgium or discover the delights of Luxembourg.

Travellers looking to ski or try out other winter sports are spoilt for choice with ski sites in Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.

Harvey Alexander, director of marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said: “Our members are very adventurous and we are really excited to be able to offer them even more inspiring options in such a wide variety of new sites across Europe – both for ski and summer holidays. All of the sites have been inspected by us, so our members can expect the Club’s usual high standards.”

Members travelling to the Club’s European sites can also take advantage of some great ferry offers. The Club works with all major ferry operators – Brittany Ferries, Stena Line, DFDS and P&O – to bring its members discounts throughout the year and great value rates across popular holiday sailings including Dover to Calais, Hull to Rotterdam and Portsmouth to Caen and St Malo. Members can even take advantage of discounts of 10% off fares from Folkestone to Calais with Eurotunnel. Other ferry crossing savings include taking caravans for free on selected crossings and motorhomes going at car rate.

For members who haven’t ventured across the channel in their leisure vehicle before, the Club will give them confidence to become real pioneers with its free ‘First Time Abroad’ guide available in the Overseas Holidays section of the Club’s site. The guide includes a three-step process for planning an overseas trip with a caravan or motorhome including where to stay, booking a ferry and getting insurance. Plus all members thinking about travelling abroad can call the Travel Service helpline on 01342 316 101 and speak to one of the Club’s experts.

Tips include scheduling your arrival time to be before or after lunchtime, as many campsite receptions shut for two hours from midday. Other advice includes packing toilet roll, as some campsites don’t supply it, and bringing extra cash as many campsites won’t have an ATM.

Members of the Club (membership costs £51 per year) can also purchase a range of quality insurance policies designed with touring in mind including motoring and personal, single-trip, annual multi-trip and long-stay cover options, as well as breakdown roadside assistance, vehicle and passenger repatriation, continuation of holiday travel and/or accommodation, medical and ski cover.
