Alan Rogers: Expert in Camping
It was 1968 when Alan Rogers published the first campsite guide that bore his name. Having established a formidable reputation for honesty and impartiality over the ensuing 40 years, the Alan Rogers name is now known throughout the UK as the leading authority on campsites and camping holidays. An increasingly wide range of Alan Rogers campsite guides are published annually in the UK and the Alan Rogers Travel Service offers a reservations service for overseas travel to UK holidaymakers. The Alan Rogers Guides are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in Holland too.
