The choice and purchase of your subscription #

Choose the right plan

Go to https://campernet.eu/product/campsite-membership-plans/ and choose the plan that suits you best. If you have 8 pitches, choose the ‘Campsite plan 6 to 10 pitches’. If you want to scale up or down later, you can always do so.

On the next page, choose ‘Sign up Now’

You will now arrive at the order page.

First enter your company details on this page.

CamperNet is based in Ireland. If you’re not based in Ireland and have a VAT number, be sure to fill it in. We will then not charge VAT on the invoice (VAT reverse charge). Enter the number including the country code like NL or IE.

URL Choice #

When ordering, you also choose the URL of your website. The URL always starts with https://campernet.eu/ , the part after that you must choose here. It is most convenient if the name of your campsite is included.
