Upon arrival

Camping: where can you park the car and what should you do when you have pets?

In the vast majority of campsites, you can park your car directly on the campsite pitch.

Nevertheless, some campsites (often at the top of the range) have a car park on the campsite. This means holidaymakers can enjoy more space on their campsite pitch. After a certain time in the evening, access to the pitch may also be forbidden to motor vehicles.

And if you come in two vehicles, there will be a charge for the second one.

For pets and dogs, in particular, you should know that some campsites don’t accept them in high season, either on pitches or in the rented accommodation, for reasons of hygiene or to prevent any possible damage. Others settle the issue by charging very high, and so dissuasive “pet” fees. In any case, you should obviously ask when you book.

If your dog is accepted (in some campsites, free of charge, too), it must be kept on a lead and cannot be left alone in your accommodation. An up-to-date vaccination booklet will be asked for when you arrive. Best not to forget it.
