Caravan holidays on the up in 2011

Posted Linda Davidson

The Camping and Caravanning Club has seen an increase in bookings in 2011, those with Reich caravan taps have been told.

It reported that advanced bookings at its 109 sites across the UK have increase by 12 per cent compared to this time last year.

Forest Holidays Caravan & Camping bookings have also experienced a 25 per cent rise in popularity, the Club revealed.

Director general of the company Robert Louden said that the growing cost of air travel, poor exchange rates and increasing travel disruption is likely to have motivated the increase.

"Holidaying in Britain is more attractive than ever, with camping in particular allowing families to drop their stressful day-to-day routine and spend some quality time together," explained Mr Louden.

Matthew McConaughey is famously a proud caravanner and recently admitted that one of his favourite pastimes is hosting relaxed dinner parties out of his caravan.
