Are you a ‘gramper’?

First there was glamping, now there’s ‘gramping’ – the latest trend to hit the world of outdoor leisures.

The phrase, which has been coined by Halfords as part of their new survey into holiday habits, refers to the rising trends of older people taking their grandchildren on breaks in the UK.

Camping and caravanning is the most popular choice of holiday for the nation’s grampers, as it is a cost-effective way to enjoy quality time with the family in the current difficult economic climate. It also gives busy parents a welcome break from the pressures of raising a young family.

“We know that many people have nostalgic memories of camping trips when they were growing up so it’s natural that grandparents want to pass on the enjoyment of a holiday under canvas to their grandchildren.
