Q. 1 Are dogs allowed on rallies
Yes dogs are welcome on the majority of our rallies but always check the rally details as there may be restrictions imposed by the site owner. If there are more than two dogs per van please check with the rally officer before booking. Dogs must be on a lead at all times on the rally field, most sites have a dog exercise area.
Q. 3 What is the average cost per night for rallies.
Q. 4 What is the average cost of rallies
Q. 5 Can I attend just selected days of a rally
Q. 6 Can I use a generator on a rally
Yes the RCA does have a number of solo caravanners who enjoy the company of others and some play a very active role in the association.
There is no average cost per night on our rallies as the fee quoted is for the full rally.
You will find there are rallies for all budgets, it is difficult to give an average price as there are so many variables, some rallies are on a farmers field with few facilities and others are on a commercial campsites with full facilites. It also depends on the number of nights and the programme that the rally officer has arranged. An example of past rallies include a 7 night rally held on a sports ground with little facilities and no electric is £57. Our most expensive rally is £234 for 14 nights on a 4 star commercial site with full facilities, electric and in house entertainment,there are many more in between. You will always get value for money and recover your membership fee if you only attend one rally.
You cannot book for a part of the rally, you are required to pay for the rally in full when you arrive and no refund if you leave early as it is not possible to arrange with the sites or landowners on a daily basis and we have to reserve pitches to get favourable rates.
Unfortunately we are unable to run Holiday Rallies where you can arrive and depart at will as this will cost considerably more per night.
Yes you can use a quiet leisure generator between 10am and 4pm daily, if you require more time for medical reasons please contact the rally officer.
