Q. 3 What is the average cost per night for rallies?


Ans. There is no average cost per night for rallies as the rally fee quoted is for the complete rally.




Q. 4 What is the average cost of R.C.A. rallies?


Ans. 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 fields with few facilities and others are on commercial camp sites with full facilities. It 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 few facilities and no electric is £57. Our most expensive rally is £234 for 14 nights on a 4* 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 even if you only attend one rally.




Q. 5 Can I just attend selected days of a rally?


Ans. You cannot book for a part of a 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.
