Caravan holidays are one of the most popular holiday choices in the UK. This is, in part, due to the fact that it tends to be considerably cheaper than going abroad and you can move about with a high degree of flexibility. For those wanting a cheap holiday with as much freedom as possible, a caravan holiday is hard to beat.
Caravans are far more comfortable than they used to be and, compared to camping, they are pure luxury. Modern caravans have all of the amenities and more that you would find in a small holiday apartment or hotel room. Only the actual amount of space is smaller. Central heating, kitchens, entertainment systems and showers are all fairly standard.
Caravan holidays do still require some planning, however. You cannot simply park your caravan anywhere. Generally, you will be staying in caravan parks and camping grounds which offer parking for caravans. There are many to choose from. In the UK, some of the most popular caravan parks can be found at www.park-resorts.com and www.hoseasons.co.uk.
When preparing for a caravan holiday, you should take some special supplies along so that you don’t end up having to go to expensive shops and make annoying detours along the way. It is always a good idea to have some tinned food and other long-life products such as UHT milk on the caravan, just in case you find yourself going to a more remote area.
You may also want to consider taking your caravan abroad. Europe is full of great places to see by caravan but, if you plan to take the caravan to other countries, you will need to make some extra preparations including familiarizing yourself with local laws and caravanning requirements.
