Dear Customer,
Thank you for your travel order.
Please find attached your booking confirmation which you should take with you on your trip. Please note we no longer send tickets for overseas travel bookings...
Now you have booked your trip why not let The Club help you make the most of your stay?
Did you know The Club has a wide selection of travel advice on the website as well as directions to all our overseas sites?
Want some inspiration on more sites across Europe? Take a look at our Caravan Europe Guides.
If you’ve not already taken out holiday insurance why not let The Club give you a Red Pennant quote online .
Yours sincerely
The Caravan Club
