Caravan holidays increase in popularity

Posted by Freddy Morton

Caravan refrigeration owners thinking about planning a trip away may need to act quickly to book their place as the popularity of caravanning in the UK is increasing rapidly.

The Camping and Caravanning Club believes that the amount of people staying in the UK for their holiday is increasing and caravanning is becoming more popular as a result.

Jon Dale, publicity manager for the Camping and Caravanning Club said: "Our club site bookings are up by about 20 per cent on this time last year.

"It seems as though a lot of people are looking for a caravan holiday rather than travelling abroad."

Mr Dale believes that the ever growing cost of air travel, combined with poor exchange rates and the recent travel disruptions, has made a holiday in Britain far more appealing.

Alicia Dunn, deputy director general of the National Caravan Council, recently claimed that the value for money offered by caravanning is attractive to the family market in difficult economic times.
