The travel industry has been turned upside down by the pandemic and it is clear that things will not be returning to normal anytime soon. Interestingly, the pandemic has led to a boom in caravan holidays with many people opting for this type of vacation in the summer of 2020 and it looks set to continue once lock-down has ended and restrictions are lifted (not to mention the impact of Brexit).
Of course, one of the main reasons for this is that international travel has either been banned or heavily restricted which means that people have had to turn to staycations as a result. Many people found that these could actually be highly enjoyable and that there were many great places all over the UK, plus they are much more affordable and easier to plan than international travel so this could be a continued trend.
There are many different types of staycation holidays that people could opt for, but it seems that caravan holidays were the preferred choice which makes sense when you look at what they can provide and the current situation. Caravan holidays can provide privacy and the ability to easily socially distance from others, plus caravan parks can be good fun and are usually found in beautiful parts of the UK which are perfect for exploring.
People Buying Caravans
Caravan holidays have proved to be so popular that many people are even looking to buy their own static caravans from places like Park Holidays. This is understandable as it gives people a place that is their own that they can easily visit at any time in the year. On top of this, the impact of the pandemic and Brexit are likely to affect travel for a while to come so many people will be looking to staycations as opposed to international travel.
Geoff Barnes, marketing director for Park Holidays, commented on the current situation:
“We are staggered by the level of interest in people keen to buy their very own holiday home. We believe the combination of health risks, the expense and hassle of overseas travel and uncertainty around Brexit has highlighted the appeal of caravan and lodge ownership at a holiday park. Being able to jump in your car and be on holiday in an hour or two whenever you choose is very appealing to people.”
It makes a lot of sense that caravan holidays are proving to be so popular in light of the pandemic and this could be a continued trend when you consider the many benefits that this type of vacation can bring.
Would you consider buying your own holiday home too?
