The question that keeps coming up in groups I’m part of and is even more important in 2023 is, is Eurocamp Great Value for Money?
As a family we love visiting Eurocamp! With over 190 Eurocamp parcs in 10 different European countries, including France, Spain, Croatia and Italy, you can honestly visit Eurocamp again and again and have a different experience every time.
One of the best things about Eurocamp, is that it’s perfect for kids of all ages, including toddlers! If you’re still unsure if Eurocamp is for you (especially if you have younger kids), then give our ultimate family guide to Eurocamp a read or our post on Eurocamp with Toddlers.
But is Eurocamp Great Value for Money?
Self- Catering makes Eurocamp Great Value for Money?
The fact that you can self-cater makes Eurocamp excellent value for money. You can still experience all the wonders of food in the country you chose to travel to but you can also buy food in the supermarkets and cook it in your caravan kitchen, or on your tent bbq.
Taking a car helps Eurocamp be great value for money. You can be prepared and pack essentials you might otherwise end up paying for. Don’t forget items such as washing up liquid, tea, sugar, dishwasher tablets, bin bags, olive oil and loo roll.
Once you’re there, it’s usually much cheaper to shop at large supermarkets rather than the campsite store.
Do check out our Ultimate Packing List for Eurocamp Holidays as it includes not only clothes and extras you might find useful but a food packing list too.
Free Kids Clubs
Many Eurocamp sites include a free kids club making Eurocamp excellent value for money. Check out the reviews of the sites to see the regularity of these camps and the previous families experiences. Also make sure that the site you’re visiting does have a Eurocamp kids club too as many sites have kids clubs but all are usually run by the individual holiday companies. On one site we went to in Paris I spotted at least 5 different kids clubs.
You’ll find English-speaking holiday reps on parc throughout your holiday, there to offer support and local knowledge when you need it. Onsite reps are a great way to save money on your holiday as they can share all the up to date tips on how to get the best value for money.
Choose your travel time wisely
If you’re travelling with school-age kids, it’s worth waiting to go away in the last two weeks of summer if you can. As with other holidays, campsite prices drop rapidly for stays at the end of August – often because most people want to go as soon as they can, often because the camp sites aren’t busy with other Europeans as their holiday periods tend to be focused to the first couple of weeks of August.
