Dutch Caravan Club: all the benefits of membership

Dutch Caravan Club: all the benefits of membership

For an entire season, from April 1 to November 1, you can choose from twelve of the most beautiful places in the Netherlands to pitch the awning of your caravan. This is possible with a wandering subscription from the Dutch Caravan Club (NCC). This association of camping enthusiasts has strategically distributed camping sites under its own management throughout the Netherlands. With a membership you have access, there is almost always room. 

The Caravan Club is an association of approximately 1600 enthusiastic and active caravan owners. The association focuses on encouraging tourist use of caravans, at home and abroad. And she has been doing that for about 65 years. NCC members can use their own club grounds. Beautifully situated in the woods, with waterways on the doorstep or by the sea. 

Stray subscription

With a wandering subscription you can make affordable use of all the options that the Caravan Club locations offer. The rule is that you stay in one place for a maximum of 28 days. Then the idea is to get acquainted with the next area, because of course there is some wandering involved. This way you stay at at least 6 different campsites during the summer season, but without having to store your caravan in the garage in between. It can simply remain there when you have to go home. This way you have a permanent seasonal spot without it ever getting boring.

The applicable rates are, to put it mildly, affordable. Compared to a permanent place at an average campsite, a camping subscription can easily save half the price. This is made possible by volunteers who are responsible for the management and maintenance. All facilities that matter, such as clean and well-functioning sanitary facilities, are available at the NCC campsites. But a swimming pool, disco or entertainment do not fit in with the aim of offering price-friendly holiday fun. Membership of the Caravan Club costs €85 per year, but this is decreasing, as of June 1 it will only be €49,60. A wandering subscription costs € 1100 for a 6-month stay at the NCC campsites

Nature, peace and space

However, financial benefit is not the main motivation for becoming a member of the Caravan Club and purchasing a travel subscription. The common thread that runs through the NCC campsites is nature, peace and space. If that suits you, as an NCC member you will find what you were looking for at all 12 Caravan Club campsites.

Conviviality is synonymous with this camping site. Beautifully located in the Green Heart of the Netherlands between Alphen aan den Rijn and Ter Aar. Open all year round.
