What does ACSI mean?

ACSI stands forAuto Camper Service International”, Auto Camper Service International. It is a Dutch company founded in 1965 by Ed Van Reine and in its beginnings it only had 55 campsites in its guide, far from the 10000 European campsites it inspects nowadays. Of these, approximately 30% accept the ACSI Discount Card.

The campsites are visited every year by an inspector who has been trained in the winter and spring months for this task. There are around 300 ACSI inspectors who check around 200 camp site features to create guides and magazines full of reliable information about motorhome and camping pitches.


How does CampingCard ACSI work?

ACSI Camp Site, which camp sites can be ACSI Camp Sites?

Years ago the number of ACSI camp sites was limited. If a campsite wanted to become an ACSI campsite, it had to apply for inspection and there had to be no other inspected campsite nearby.

In the course of time this did not make sense as there were many campsites of sufficient quality to be ACSI camp sites nearby, so the proximity restriction was lifted.

Although 200 points are reviewed, the large blocks in which the campsite must comply with more than enough are:

  • Sanitary
  • Staff
  • Quality/price ratio
  • Suitable for children
  • Entertainment
  • Sports facilities
  • Swimming pool
  • Eating and drinking
  • Surroundings
  • Size of the plots and their amenities
  • Location of the campsite and its correct coordinates
  • Camping rules
  • Dogs and facilities regulations
  • Details for large caravans and motorhomes

ACSI CampingCard rates

  • Daily price of pitch for 2 persons with car and motorhome: 12 ¤, 14 ¤, 16 ¤, 18 ¤ or 20 ¤.

Where can I buy the CampingCard ACSI Card?

The ACSI Card is obtained by purchasing the ACSI Guide, which you can buy online or at our camp site. The CampingCard, as the card is called, comes in the guidebook itself to be used as a card immediately. You can find the inspected campsites on the Eurocampings website.
