CL and CS sites are small, privately-owned locations that can accommodate a maximum of five units per night. Certified Locations (CL) are for Caravan and Motorhome Club Members, while Certified Sites (CS) are for Camping and Caravanning Club members.
These sites may have fewer pitches, but with thousands of CL and CS sites across the UK (and if my maths is correct), theoretical site nights per year are measured in the millions.
However, in a world that increasingly revolves around the internet, checking availability could only be conducted by phone. Each site would be contacted individually, and messages left on numerous answering machines if CL owners were otherwise engaged, until now.
A CL owner set up the CL Booking website and app, and, at the time of writing, it lists 231 separate CL sites from The Caravan & Motorhome Club network. It allows users to search by region or site and, importantly, enables you to input desired dates to check availability. With a suitable site found, final confirmation must be made by the CL owner, although this could be an email by return that confirms your booking. New sites join the CL booking system each week, saving time searching for somewhere to stay. CL Booking is only for CL sites on The Caravan & Motorhome Club network.
