The growth of campervan holidays
Campervan holidays are a large and growing market in the UK. There are many reasons for
this - for one, it’s a simple fact that more people are buying campervans and motorhomes
privately. Indeed, campervans will soon become the most popular leisure vehicle for people
to own, above others like motorcycles, caravans and so on.
And of course, the more people that own campervans, the more people that will want to make
use of these fairly pricy vehicles by taking them out for a spin as often as possible.
Interestingly, many people actually come to our website to hire a vehicle as a way of
testing a campervan they are thinking of buying. We think this is a very smart way of doing
things, as you can be sure that you are actually enjoy living in and driving a campervan
putting down some serious cash to buy the vehicle!
There are many other reasons for the growth in campervan holidays, another one being that
campervan and motorhome holidays appeal more to older people with a bit of time on their hands,
and Britain, with its aging population, certainly fits the bill here too. Also, COVID has led
to a resurgence in ‘staycation’ style holidays due to all the challenges and restrictions around
flying and visiting foreign countries that still persist, so hiring a campervan and simply
enjoying all the UK has to offer has become far easier and more appealing.
Also, campervan trips are definitely better for the environment than flying to another country,
and as a bonus allow you to really connect with nature as you’re likely to be camping right
alongside it! Campervan vacations are certainly more geared to the great outdoors, as you’re
not going to want to stay in a campervan in a city for that long.
There’s also no doubt that campervan holidays are one of the best ways to save money, as you
are of course taking all your accommodation and transport with you whilst you travel. Similarly,
you can actually cook very well in the vast majority of these vehicles too, which creates further
savings vs eating out for every meal.

The benefits of campervans
Campervans have a number of benefits over their larger cousins motorhomes. Mainly,
these are around size - if you’re planning to visit some of the more out of the way
locations which are accessed by narrow country roads, a campervan is the way to go.
Campervans are far less likely to get bogged down or stuck on very narrow lanes, and
should just about fit in most passing places, which cannot be said for motorhomes.
Moreover, campervans are also far easier to drive for those people who are unused
to driving a larger vehicle. They drive almost exactly like a van, which is not
surprising as most modern campervans are build on a van body. With a normal amount
of experience in driving a car, you should be able to pick the skills to drive a
campervan no problem, which cannot be said for motorhomes.
Campervans are usually, but not always, cheaper to hire. And also, they almost always
more affordable to run as well, as they take less fuel due to their reduced weight
and more aerodynamic design.
The be balanced though, we should consider the disadvantages of campervans too. Firstly,
they are certainly less well equipped than motorhomes in terms of additional extras like
showers, cooking facilities and so on.
They are also less comfortable if being used for extended periods, for example they can
be hard to stand up in and move about inside. So if you think you might fall foul of the
great British weather, then a motorhome is the better option - with a campervan, you are
more tied into the outside weather, since you’ll be spending more time outside.
Motorhomes are also more suitable if you have a large group of people, and also if you
simply have more possessions with you that you need to store.
