New Figures Reveal Boom of Motorhome Holiday Staycations In Britain
New figures from the National Caravan and Camping Club have revealed that the lure of staycations and motorhome holiday’s are experiencing a boom with Brits.
Families, couples and young people are all interpreting their own form of camping from ‘glamping’, economical family holidays and weekend breaks for couples.
Weather Not Affecting Growth Trend
Surprisingly weather does not seem to play a large role in whether or not families decide to go on a camping trip. The ability and financial advantages of being able to borrow equipment; the capacity to be close to nature and wild life; outdoor activities and being close to home all contribute to the choice to take a ‘staycation’.
Camping Industry Responsible For Contributing £6m To The UK Economy
The camping industry is now responsible for contributing £6m to the UK economy. The rise in popularity in camping in either a caravan or a motorhome has meant there has been many bonuses to the industry as a whole. One advantage has been the surge in interest from students wishing to study tourism park management
The statistics disclosed in the NCC report showed that there are approximately 1.5 million people who take their motorhomes and caravans on holiday every year and that there has been a 14% rise in advanced bookings.
Glamping Adding To Popularity Of Staycations and Motorhome Holidays
An NCC spokesperson said that the sector had seen a significant rise in people holidaying abroad. Brits wanting a more economical holiday have made growth in the industry possible and the trend of glamping has also added to the popularity.
