Caravan and Motorhome Club UK


Since the app was launched earlier this year we have been listening to your feedback, and your ideas and suggestions have helped us to develop the app further

We are pleased to report that your main concerns have been addressed in this latest update. Plus, we’ve also made some additional improvements which we’re confident you’ll like.

If you haven’t already, you can upgrade your UK Sites App today - available to download in the Google Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOs.

What’s new?
Reduced app size

The size of the app is significantly smaller than the previous version, taking up less storage space on your device. This is because the app now uses the maps that are already built into your phone or tablet. Before the update, the app came with Caravan and Motorhome Club maps that were installed on your device, making its overall size much larger.

By using the built-in maps (also known as ‘native’ maps), we have also been able to iron out some bugs that were being experienced with the previous version.

Search function improvement

When searching for sites using the app, a search radius is now shown when viewing the results on the map tab, making it clear exactly which area you’re searching in. If you need quick access to sites nearby, simply use the + and – buttons on the map tab to increase or decrease the radius distance and hit ‘done’. To refine your search result, you can still filter by your preferences such as site type, facilities and other criteria.

Filter improvement

As you browse through your search results, you’ll notice on the map tab a filter button has been added. This will allow you to adjust your search results without the need to return to the initial search screen.

Bug fixes

General improvements and adjustments have been made, particularly focusing on issues that were intermittently preventing search results from displaying correctly.
