I have not prebooked with Aire park reservations, but used lots of their sites. I would make 3 points about them.
1. Their webpage is not particularly user friendly nor do they seem to have an app. All info is in french which is ok but requires a bit of thought.
2. As they take over the running of more and more Aires
I have not noticed any moves to have a uniform system of entry and payment. Sites appear to continue with whatever system was in place before takeover especially where barriers already exist. So payment methods can vary.
3. Whereas camping
carpark seem to spend a bit of money to improve and standardise their locations
, on several Aires
were Aire park reservation have taken control there appears to have been no investment whatsoever, not even repainting white lines to Demark bays on tarmac locations
. Camerat sur mer and the Mi Lady beach Aire at Biarritz are 2 such examples where nothing changed.
Having said this, they appear to be growing as quickly, if not quicker than camping
carpark in the number of Aires
they control or manage, so I guess we just work with the system they have.
