Rachel my biggest problem I have been finding is when the CG nickel and dimes me. I plan where I will stop ahead of time and try to call at least a week ahead of time that way I know the real cost of a nights stay. Not the following
$5.00 for 50 amp but I don't need it as I am not heating or cooling the rig.
$3.00 because I have a washer/dryer, but I'm not doing wash
$3/5.00 to dump, but if I pay full price N/C
What you have a goldfish that's $2.00 more you may change the water, just joking, but they do want more money if I have a dog.
This is just crazy what some of the CG do so you still pay full price or more.
So you know, I been a member for awhile and have recommend PA to friends.
I stayed at Cassidy's in La Porte, IN last week and he said his prices went up over last year and would be $4.00 more. All I said was the web pages hadn't been changed, his response was OK I can only charge you last years price. That's what you have to get other CG to do charge what they say on PA web site. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Hi "read & learn"

The extra charges that you're talking about should not just be for PA members. For example, if the campground charges $3.00 extra for a/c, it should be for the full paying people at the park as well as PA members. If you see that you're getting charged differently, please let us know and we'll be more than happy to look into it for you. Please let me know if there are any additional questions/concerns you or anyone else may have. Have a great one!

We at one time had PA and we dropped it because of all the restrictions we encountered. Can anyone here explain the real differences between PA and C2C memberships ?

The restrictions are all listed in the book. Seems strange to just not live with the restrictions on time an dates and stuff. Just takes a second to see them in the book. We sure do. If they didn't have the restrictions to keep them from losing money during there times they would be full anyway, then they wouldn't be in the book at all. I think of all the times we have stayed at a Passport America parks and swam, laundered, or talked with people who paid full price for exactly the same services we were enjoying. If you stay a lot at parks, there is a great chance that this has happened to you and you didn't know it. Maybe I am cheap, but I love paying half price. If my wife (the navigator) can spend 1 minute to save $16, then that is time well spent.

I would like to hear more about these 2 owners.

Are these actually two separate companies with the same name??

Also why one is called "THE ORIGNAL" and the other is not???

Why are the 800 number different??

My suspension is these are two completely separate companies, but I may be incorrect.

Inquiring minds would like to know.

-Tom

Hi Tom,

Passport America has 2 different offices with 2 different owners, but is still the same company. The 800 numbers are different b/c one 800 number is to the office in Long Beach, MS and the other 800 number is to the office in Crestview, FL. You still get the same discount from either one, which is 50% off of the regular camping rate. They are both "the original" b/c they were both started at the same time (in 1992). Hope this clears up some of the confusion

I love the PA discounts when appicable, as another poster mentioned the restrictions are for the most part right there in black/white. Most of them I understand especially around the weekends or holidays, but being a fulltimer it sure helps sometimes when you can use it during the week and sometimes on weekends. Just used it four days last week total savings $80 bucks.

Hey, that's enough for nearly 20 gallons of fuel or 125 miles of driving.

We just joined at the Jacksonville RV Show, and have already recouped our membership cost. We stayed at Jetty Park in Port Canaveral for 1st night full price (April was a restricted period) and the next 3 nights (in May) at half-price. We will use it more before our 15 months are up! And we will most likely renew.

First of all, we have been surprised a few times by the add-ons that were not in the book, that is why we call ahead. I don't know about some folks but we don't like surprises.
What is the difference between C2C and PA
Price--C2C is $10 per night PA varies depands on CG
Locations--As a member of both I find some CG belong to both
Bottom line, would we stop being members of PA, that's a no-brainer, NO.
Like I stated in my original post it's only a few bad apples, but we will let Rachel know in future.
Rachel, I think you should have a rating system for members to rate CG. Like Cassidys that dropped his price back to last year because the web site had last years rate. These are the places we like to support.
As a part time, full timer, average 8-10 months on the road we use both clubs and both have giving us our investment back. PA first time we used it-C2C took about 7-8 months.
