1. LEAF (Bonus word)
There are 275 parks in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and throughout Europe.
See the Park Listings here
Running through autumn for £9.50 pp*; plus late summer breaks from £15 per person*.
They are for a 3 night weekend, or 4 night midweek break from just £38.00 (for 4 people or less, add £9.50 per head for each additional person). And Europe breaks are 3, 4 or 7 nights (£19 pp).
* there may also be extra costs – mainly linen, electricity/gas, entertainment passes, see each park for details
Do they actually cost £9.50 per person?
This is dependent on when and where you want to go. If it is your maximum budget they look out for the ‘Pay only £9.50 flag’ (available for selected dates).
Some people say it is cheaper to book directly with the camp site themselves. My advice is to plan in advance. Think about the type of holiday you want – ie is self-catering enough for you are or you going to want to pay for all-inclusive/take-aways etc, and therefore a package deal may end up being cheaper. Or look out for the ‘FREE FOOD & DRINK’ symbol – for parks offering free food and drink vouchers with Clubroom Passes for midweek breaks (Mon-Fri). Did you want to upgrade your caravan (which incurs extra costs).
See my post about taking a family of 6 abroad – I’d love to know if you can find cheaper for me!
In fact if you are a family of 4 check out their guarantee that if you can book an exact holiday to the same destination/dates cheaper within 28 days they will refund the difference plus £10!! (see the website for terms).
You may decide to take your own linen to save on costs or pay for the convenience.
Entertainment passes are optional but do cover the pool, bars, restaurants, etc. We have previously found that the Park has allowed these to still be purchased on arrival, but I could not guarantee this – maybe ring and check with the park. Some parks have FREE entertainment passes, or FREE on selected dates, or to young children – look out for the symbol and each park is clearly marked. with almost 100 parks being labelled as Funsaver parks – which means they have frozen their entertainment passes at last year’s prices.
Service charges for electricity/gas or per unit per night – but there is an option of NO SERVICE CHARGE – so you use it on a meter, and only pay for what you use. Think at this later time of year though which may be cheaper for you.
Or if you don’t mind which park you go to in an area if you tick the ‘ANY PARK IN AREA’ box then the service charge will not be any more than £3.75 a night, and entertainment passes £4 per person per break.
How are you going to get there? Sun holidays to Europe do not include flights – a long drive may cost more in fuel/ferry crossings than a flight included in a package deal. Each of the parks tell you how much extra they charge, so you can work out how much each park would cost you depending on the size of your party. Look out for the Ferry deals too – but be aware that they may not be right for your vehicle (we have a people carrier with top box making it higher than normal) and the sun code did not apply.
There is also the option to be holiday insurance and cover.
Note: Not all parks are available on all dates.
