Where's best to book my camping holiday package?

After months of painstaking research on your behalf (it REALLY was exhausting travelling around Europe to review all of these parks!), we'd like to tell you, that although we enjoyed our stays with all of the tour operators, the one's that really stood out for us were Al Fresco holidays (previously Thomson Al Fresco), Siblu, Eurocamp and Suncamp holidays. Not only were their holidays exceptional value for money, but from start to finish their staff and holiday reps went the extra mile. Read our honest opinions of the top camping tour operators below...

2: Eurocamp

Offering a great range of holiday parks, along with their experience and customer care, Eurocamp is recommended for holiday parks in Holland, Germany, France and Sicily.

Eurocamp self catering holidays

Why Eurocamp - tips and advice
Almost everyone has heard of Eurocamp, and with good reason! Not only do they offer more choice in more locations than their rivals, but their wealth of knowledge and experience is truly impressive. Eurocamp have recently invested in new mobile homes and tents to make outdoor living a luxury. For 2014 they have introduced an exciting new holiday home called the 'aspect'. The holiday reps are very friendly and helpful (we even tested them out on a few awkward scenarios), and they have different kids clubs' for all ages, even for teens!

Eurocamp offer many extras from cots to linen packs. But be careful if you go on a multi park stay, as the linen packs are charged per park, so you may be better off taking your own or buying a cheap set from your local supermarket at home. When choosing a park, be careful to research if the park has the right kids clubs' to suit your family, and bear in mind that many activities on the parks are generally hosted in summer months.

Whether your budget is big or small, as Eurocamp has a huge selection of accommodation, and an even larger selection of parks, there is a holiday to suit everyone's pockets. If your only using the accommodation to sleep in, and intend to spend all your time exploring, then you could save money by choosing a more basic accommodation type. We found that booking a holiday online tends to be cheaper as more offers are available. A good tip to keep in mind when booking, Eurocamp charge a £15 equipment damage waiver fee, or if you don't want to pay that, the website says you can can pay a deposit of £100 on arrival. However we have never known them to take a deposit off anyone, so save yourself the £15!

3: Siblu

Recommended for family fun on the French coastline, and Italy.

Siblu mobile home holidays

Why Siblu - tips and advice
Siblu tell us that their name is French for ‘happy families’ and they're not wrong! So committed are they to great family holidays that most of the holidays parks they feature on, are exclusively theirs, ensuring that Siblu’s high standards are maintained in every aspect of the holiday.

Along with their well maintained parks, they also have outstanding swimming facilities including pools with waterslides and chutes, padding pools for little ones, and some parks with heated indoor pools.

Siblu also run 4 children's club's throughout the summer season that cater from the ages of 1-14. Siblu pride themselves on all their activities and you’ll be glad to know that kids clubs are free.

Accommodation selection on Siblu parks are a little dated with the basic range being rather small for a family with 2 children, the other two accommodation types are recommended. In most of their accommodation, there is no air conditioning, so they can get rather hot. The staff on the parks are very friendly with the holiday reps ensuring customers have all their needs catered for.

Book for only £25 deposit.
