Caravan holidays are probably the closest most people will ever get to a luxury holiday. These kinds of holidays are becoming more and more popular as travelling abroad and visiting luxury hotels are simply not as convenient or affordable.
There are many fine caravan parks situated all over the United Kingdom, with facilities and amenities that can compete with luxury hotels and resorts. Furthermore, parks have restaurants, pubs, and nearby attractions.
Recent studies by the NCC suggest that caravanning in the UK contributes roughly £6 billion annually to the UK economy, and statistics show that campers spend more than 50 million nights in caravans each year. A government poll suggested that roughly half of the people in the UK are planning their next holiday in the UK instead of going abroad.
The local tourism industry is booming in the UK. These trends are great for the local economy, and more people are buying into the caravan holiday idea year upon year. Google analytics showed that the terms ‘caravan’ and ‘camping’ were up 56% in July 2020, compared with the previous year.
The ease and convenience of travelling in a caravan is a major benefit for most holidaymakers, as they can stick to their own schedules while enjoying the freedom and variety that different campsites and resorts offer. People can even bring their pets along for the ride if they wish.
Hotels and hostels tend to have strict rules and policies that prevent holidaymakers from feeling the same freedom and flexibility as they would if they were travelling by caravan. Hotel rooms can be tough for large families who need to coordinate and plan their activities.
Some people consider a caravan holiday to be the ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. People working in London seem to get tired of the rat race and head out to the countryside for a little peace and tranquillity. This gives people an opportunity to enjoy a place away from their busy lives for a short while.
Many people in the country buy into the caravan lifestyle. Readers can read more about these holiday trends in the UK by following articles on Liesls Holidays.
