Budget Travel Advice

A caravan holiday can be a great way to take the whole family on a memorable adventure without it costing an arm and a leg. As more and more people decide to stay in the UK to take their holiday, campsites and caravan parks reap the benefits and turn them into an even greater experience for new visitors.

This means that there has never been a greater time to set off on a trip round the country to experience the joys of the UK’s fabulous countryside and cities. Here we take a look at the a few things you should think about before setting off and what you can look forward to once you’re on your way.


In order to ensure you have a great time, there are a few things you need to do before you leave your home. Firstly, you’ll need to think about insurance. If you have access to your own caravan, then you’ll probably already be insured. However, it is incredibly important to look into other caravan insurance if you plan to hire a caravan.

Secondly, it’s a good idea to have a basic plan as to what you’ll be doing while away. This will give you the information necessary to work out what supplies you need to stock up on.

Finally, make sure everyone will be comfortable in your proposed accommodation. There’s nothing that can spoil a trip like being uncomfortable for a whole week.

Where To Go?

The beauty of a caravan holiday is that you have complete freedom to move wherever you want, whenever you want. There’s no specific itinerary that you have to keep to, or deadlines you have to meet. Instead, you’re completely self-reliant and independent, able to pick up and move on to other campsites, counties or cities whenever it pleases you.

However, if you are looking for something specific, there’s plenty of information concerning the specifics of a huge range of campsites and caravan parks online. This means that if you need a family friendly campsite, an area close to water sports centres or near historical attractions, you’ll be able to find the perfect destination simply by browsing through caravanning websites online.

Things to Do

Caravan holidays provide the perfect opportunity to explore the great British countryside, whether it’s by bicycle or in your trusty hiking boots. They’re also great for kids who enjoy playing sports or getting involved in outdoor activities. If your children enjoy being by the seaside, there are also a huge range of beachfront campsites to choose from, ranging from colder spots up on the Scottish coast, to vibrant coastal regions around Bournemouth and Brighton.

Whether it’s your first caravan holiday or you’re an experienced traveller, there’s always a great deal of excitement surrounding a caravan adventure. As long as you’re prepared, there’s not much to stop you having a great time and you’ll always come back wanting to try it again as soon as possible.
