    Default A not so cheap caravanning weekend

    Hi,a few weeks ago the papers were offering camping and caravanning at £1 per night at selected parks. So I decided to reserve a long weekend in Brean at a large park. Cost was 95p per night + £3 per night ehu.
    We decided to take our dog as well, upon arrival at reception they wanted £3 pn for dog, asking what the dog got for price, answer Nothing!
    Now with steam coming out of my ears, complaining voice getting louder, I asked for my prepaid balance returned to me. They agreed to that after a while, so I booked into another site just down the road. Now I know that this cost me more money than if I had stayed in the first park, but I HATE being ripped off.

    So you paid more money than the original campsite, but you hate being ripped off? I don't see the logic in that.

    That is fine then Dave.

    My principles have also cost me, both financially and also friendships. But we must have a moral compass, or we are just savages.

    I agree with you, it really ****es me of that most caravan sites now charge per person! The whole beauty of caravanning used to be that if you had a family it was cheaper than hotels etc. I can see virtually no justification for charging extra.

    I would rather go to another site, than give the rip off site the benifit of my cash. The wife was rather surprised when I came out of the office, jumped in car and drove out of the site.

    To play Devil's Advocate (as a dog owner I also think it's wrong) these days usually wise to check on booking if they charge extra for pets, breathing, having 4 wheels on the car etc.
