Caravan holidays became more popular after 2008 when the last recession set in so part of the reason more people began renting caravans was that they were cheaper than many other alternatives. But that isn’t the entire reason.
Naturally money played a part since we have all had to curb our expenditure in recent years and find ways to economise in the best way we can. The expense of holidays is one area where considerable savings can be made. Renting a caravan provides excellent and often luxurious accommodation at a fraction of the cost of hotels, B&Bs and holiday cottages. There are also no plane tickets to buy.
Space and luxury
However, much of the appeal also comes from the dramatic improvement over recent years in static caravans. Manufacturers have made modern caravans more spacious and improved designs to the extent that many can be compared to luxury hotel suites. Most static caravans nowadays have more than adequate storage space as well as fully fitted kitchens that include dishwashers, washing machines, ovens and hobs. Many are double glazed with hot air central heating systems and some are equipped with baths as well as showers and toilet facilities. Accessories often include flat screen televisions, DVD players, electronic games and many other luxuries that you may enjoy in your own home.
Something for everyone
Unlike hotel accommodation where it is difficult to enjoy spending prolonged periods of time in one room a caravan is a home from home with all the facilities to make you comfortable and keep you entertained. Invariably the holiday Parks on which the caravans are situated provide a wealth of entertainment, as well as shops, bars and restaurants, providing everything you need for your holiday.
Caravan holidays are not all “Hi de Hi” or Butlins style. Whilst many caravan parks cater for full, fun packed family adventure and entertainment there are several throughout the UK where you can spend a week or two in complete peace and quiet. Weekend breaks are also possible out of season. If you are an artist or writer an out of season caravan holiday can be an ideal setting to find inspiration or finish your masterpiece.
In summary caravan holidays are affordable, flexible and hassle free with caravan parks catering for all types of visitors. Try it this year, you may find it will be your choice for years to come.
