Order your 2016 ACSI Camping Card Now

Vicarious Books are proud to be the UK agent for ACSI Publishing BV. We highly recommend both the ACSI Camping Card and the ACSI Campsite DVD. The ACSI Camping Card has 3142 participating campsites across Europe, many more than Camping Cheque or other discount camping schemes. With the CampingCard ACSI discount scheme there is no upfront outlay for more expensive camping or freedom cheques that may not be used. The ACSI 2015 Campsite DVD has 8539 campgrounds listed. ACSI inspect all 8539 campsites annually, but only 3142 of these campsites are in the Camping Card discount guidebook for 2016, so not all campsites that have an ACSI sticker in reception are in the discount camping scheme. The ACSI campsite DVD is a computer database and the level of detail is far greater than is found in any campsite book. GPS coordinates are published in both the ACSI DVD and Camping Card Guidebook in the following format N44°52'51" E001°13'13".

There is no upfront commitment with the CampingCard ACSI and no Camping Cheques to purchase. Having bought the guidebook, card enclosed, simply present the Camping Card at reception of participating campsites to gain your discounted off season pitch price. Discounts are available most of the year, except July and August. Small charges can be made by the campsite to cover tourist or environment taxes and waste disposal.

The only thing you need to do is write your name and address on the back of the ACSI camping card, that presses out from the cover, (see bottom right of picture). You can of course use the campsites all year and at only £14.50 you only need to use it 1-2 nights to start saving.

A clever alphabetical key allows you to choose exactly the campsite you need; C means they accept dogs (which many do), E by a river, F by a lake, and G close to sea. I with public transports.

ACSI inspects over 9000 campsites every year and many display the ACSI logo, but it is only the 3142 in this year's guide that offer discount camping. ACSI also produce a DVD campsite guide that lists 8535 campsites including the ones in the discount camping scheme, but does not entitle you to discounted pitch prices and does not come with the membership card.

Who should buy the ACSI Camping Card
The Camping Card scheme is ideal for anyone travelling in Europe this year. Whether you exclusively pitch up at campsites or just occasionally like to use them as pit stops, the ACSI Camping Card scheme will save you money and enable you to enjoy your holiday to the fullest. Anyone travelling to Italy should have a camping card as Italian overnight pitch fees can be extremely expensive.

Essential for all campsite users.
