Since their inception, the guides have provided readers with an independent recommendation of the highest quality campsites in Europe. Today, there are two Alan Rogers guides series: country guides and themed guides, both of which are available in multiple languages.

The second, 'Escapes', provides mobile home holidays on campsites in France.
