What is ACSI?

ACSI stands for “Auto Camper Service International”, International Motorhome Services. It is a Dutch company founded in 1965 by Ed Van Reine and that at the beginning had only 55 campsites in its guide, very far from the 10,000 European campsites that it inspects at the moment. Of those, approximately 30% accept the ACSI Discount Card.

The campsites are visited every year by an inspector who has been prepared in the winter and spring months for this work. There are some 300 ACSI inspectors who review about 200 characteristics of the campsite to create guides and magazines full of reliable information about plots for campers and campers.

How does the ACSI CampingCard work?

The ACSI or CampingCard ACSI Card is very simple: you have to take it on your trip and show it on arrival at the reception of your campsite in Benidorm. The card offers us prices for campsites inspected and with the CC logo during the year of validity and some advantages depending on the campsite. The biggest advantage is fixed price rates, which are cheaper than the lower rates charged by participating campsites. Same services, cheaper rates.

Camping ACSI, what campsites can be?

Years ago the number of ACSI campsites was limited. If a campsite wanted to be Camping ACSI, it had to request the inspection and that there was no other campsite inspected nearby.

With the passage of time, this did not make sense since there were many campsites with sufficient quality to be Camping ACSI nearby, so the restriction of proximity was eliminated.

Although 200 points are reviewed, the big blocks in which the campsite must comply with are:

  • Sanitary
  • Personal
  • Quality / price ratio
  • Suitable for children
  • Entertainment
  • Sports facilities
  • Pool
  • Eat and drink
  • Surroundings
  • Size of the parcels and their services
  • Situation of the campsite and its correct coordinates
  • Campsite rules
  • Regulations on dogs and facilities
  • Details for caravans and large motorhomes

ACSI CampingCard

  • Daily pitch price for 2 people with car and motorhome: € 11, € 13, € 15, € 17 or € 19 (2018).
  • Daily pitch price for 2 people with car and motorhome: € 12, € 14, € 16, € 18 or € 20 (2019).

Where can I buy the ACSI CampingCard?

The ACSI Card is obtained by purchasing the ACSI guide, which can be purchased Online or at our campsite. The CampingCard, which is what the card is called, comes in the guide itself to be used as a card immediately. You can find the inspected campsites on the Eurocampings website.
