My Motorhome Travels 2019

What is a rally?
It is a gathering of Caravan and Motorhome Club or Camping and Caravanning Club Members who enjoy weekends away with fun and fellowship thrown in for good measure. Use your caravan or motorhome all year round in lovely surroundings at reasonable prices. You can enjoy a natter, have a laugh and perhaps a drink or two - a real opportunity to make new friends and visit new places.

Who goes on rallies?
A complete mixture of people ranging from families with young children, families with teenagers, people without children, people whose children are grown up, retired people, people on their own, people with their dogs (and cats and budgies and hamsters!). One thing all these people have in common is enjoying the freedom offered by motorhomes and caravans.

Where are rallies held?
At a variety of venues depends where you live. During the winter months, the rallies are usually held on hard standing in school playgrounds (no getting bogged down in the mud!).

What about holidays?
Holiday rallies are held during periods such as Bank Holidays, half term or in the summer. See your local centre for information.

What happens on a rally?
Lots! Generally, the day time is available to spend at your leisure although sometimes optional activities are arranged such as Competitions, Bingo, Fishing, Walks, Tenpin bowling.

Are there any special rallies?
Yes. National Feast of Lanterns, Irish National, Scottish National, Welsh National Easter, Christmas, and New Year.

How much does it cost?
This is the great thing about rallying. Prices obviously vary depending on the venue, but can be as low as £5.00 per night

How many people attend a rally?
Again this varies. Some rallies are small with less than ten caravans attending. Others, especially those near a popular event, attract over fifty units.

What facilities are there?
A fresh water tap is available on the rally field, and an elsan waste disposal point. Apart from the rallies held at commercial sites, no electric hook-up is available.

How do I go on a rally?
Firstly, you need to join the Caravan and Motorhome Club or Camping and Caravanning Club. You then optionally register with a Centre. On registering you will be sent a copy of the Rally Programme booklet, which contains full details of all the rallies being held throughout the year by the Centre. Decide which rally you wish to attend and book online or post a booking form (normally included with the Rally Book) to the Rally Officer running the rally. Then just turn up at the venue on the appointed day. Full directions to the rally site are in the Rally Book and also on the website with a link to a map. The final part of the route will be marked with signs.

Being a member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club or Camping and Caravanning Club also entitles you to attend any rally held by any Centre, details of which can be found on the Caravan and Motorhome Club or Caravan & Camping websites or on other Centres' websites.
