Caravans provide a great way to see Britain and get off the beaten track to visit even more places. For the more adventurous and serious caravanner, you can visit further afield with most parts of Europe now being accessible via a cross sea ferry.
There has never been a better time to venture further afield with a caravan. With the large increases and levies put on plane travel by the Government, travelling in Europe with a caravan can offer a great value for money option and also mean that you don’t miss out on that European sun. Traveling through Europe with a caravan also enables you to taste the different foods and cuisines from the different regions and countries.
It also offers unprecedented flexibility in your travel, no need to book ahead for a room or search for hotel, you can take your very own hotel with you and you can be sure of quality accommodation every night. There is a growing network of caravanning parks and sites throughout Europe with the facilities they offer, becoming more and more impressive and the cost of staying on sites still offers great value for money. You can find out more about the growing number of caravan sites across Europe through one of the Caravanning Associations or by searching the internet or via one of the specialist caravan magazines available.
For those wishing to stay closer to home, the holiday maker has a great choice of destinations that they can visit throughout the UK. There are two main types of destination in the UK, there rural destinations, where we can see the beautiful countryside in places like the Dales or the Lake District or we have the sea side locations where we can visit the beach or take a trip to the fairground. If you decide on a sea side location then you also have a couple of options available.
You can take your own caravan to one of the many sites available or you can choose to stay in one of the number of static caravans available on permanent sites or perhaps you have your own static caravan based on one of these permanent sites. With so many Britons choosing to stay within the UK for their holiday it is great time to become a caravan owner or to own a caravan to take full advantage of the open road.
If you decide to join one of the popular caravanning clubs you can take advantage of the many benefits and special offers that they provide for members. They also have regular ‘get togethers’ and events throughout the year. Joining one of many larger organisations can also mean that you are eligible for discounts on caravan insurance quotes. Caravan clubs are split into two types, general clubs and caravan owners clubs. If the club you wish to join doesn’t offer discounted insurance for your caravan then you can always opt for one of the specialised caravan insurance companies to get caravan insurance quotes.
