Most rallies are not expensive to attend. This year for the normal UK rally there is a rally fee of £5 per unit and then a site fee of typically £8 to £12 per night. A limited number of rallies have electric hook ups and these may add around £3 - £4 per night to the cost depending on the time of year. There is sometimes a social cost of a pound or two to cover the hire of a village hall or other costs.

Holiday and continental rallies can be quite a bit more expensive as we normally use commercial sites with electric hook ups. Also meals and tours are often included in the costs.
