Preparing Your Holiday Home for Caravan Lettings

Caravan lettings

Spring is here and you’ll be looking forward to plenty of caravan lettings this year.  Here are some tips to prepare for them. If your static caravan has been closed throughout the winter you’ll need to check the interior and exterior for damage or leaks. Water, Electricity and Gas Many Caravan Owners use the maintenance team on their holiday park to drain up or down for them.  If this is the case, all you have to do is turn on the water supply back on. However, before you do, ensure that all taps, showers etc., are off.  When you have turned the stopcock on, check that all taps are working and that washers don’t need attention.

Renting a Caravan in the UK

Renting a Caravan in the UK | Rent My Caravan

Can Renting a Caravan Compete with Glamping? For those who don’t yet know what Glamping is, it’s really the same as camping but in a luxurious tent, something I am sure will enhance the camping experience for those who truly love camping.  However, in my view Renting a Caravan in the UK provides a similar experience to Glamping but with even more luxury and comfort. For example, you won’t get a flat screen TV in a tent and for those of us that like to keep up with the news whilst we are away, that is a must for some people. It’s also something to keep the kids occupied in inclement weather. No trudging through the mud Trudging even a short distance in the mud…

Last Minute Caravan Holidays or Book in Advance?

Last minute caravan holidays, book caravan holiday in advance

A few years back people often booked last minute caravan holidays, waiting for cancellations in the hope of getting a cheaper deal. But is waiting until the last minute a good idea now? The short answer is “no”. There are now extremely compelling reason to book well in advance. Here are some of them. Last minute is not always cheaper Many static caravan owners rent out their holiday homes to assist with maintenance and running costs.  If a free weekend or week becomes available they often take the opportunity to use the caravan themselves.  It gives them a chance of a few days break. Free time can also be spent checking that the caravan is in good order. This particularly applies if they live some…

How To Keep Up To Date With The Internet On a Caravan Holiday

Internet on a Caravan Holiday

We recently wrote a blog post about having a tech-free relaxing holiday at your rental caravan. However, what if work commitments require you to have access to the World Wide Web so you can keep up to date with your emails, accounts and work colleagues; and also have internet for recreational use?  These days there are many options to enable you to have access to the internet on a caravan holiday.

What Would You Like to Find if You Rented a Holiday Caravan?

Renting a holiday caravan

We have been doing some research this month among our various social media followers and some of the owners of caravans on the Rent My Caravan website, asking them what they would like to be provided with when renting a holiday caravan. This is what they said: I rented a holiday caravan on Seldon’s Golden Gate Holiday Park, North Wales last year and was really impressed that it had central heating in all the rooms. I didn’t have to take bedding because bed linen and duvets were provided, there were some great DVDs, games for the kids and adults to play, some interesting books and an MP3 player with a good selection of music.  Our kids are older so we didn’t need the high chair…
