Caravanners on trend as ‘staycations’ become more popular

Crowded airports, long journeys, lost luggage: it’s no wonder the lure of foreign holidays is losing its appeal!

According to new research by a holiday lettings company, the rest of the nation is cottoning onto what caravan and motorhome users have known for years – that the most cost-effective and relaxing way to enjoy your free time is to escape to a quiet spot in the UK.

Events such as the Queen’s jubilee and the London 2012 Olympic games have inspired more Britons than usual to holiday in their home country this year.

It’s expected that seaside locations will see the biggest surge, with Lincolnshire’s Skegness among the places earmarked to experience a tourist boom.

The recent sunny spell has also given us confidence in the great British weather, making many people more inclined to stay in the UK for this year’s summer break.

As well as demonstrating why so many touring caravan and motorhome users have the right attitude to vacationing, the rise of the staycation presents a good business opportunity for anyone wanting to rent out their static caravan or holiday lodge.

Whether you’re planning to holiday in Britain this year or you’re embarking on a new commercial venture, Coast’s specialist touring caravan insurance, static caravan insurance and holiday lodge insurance can protect you in the event of damage.
