Caravan taps owners who have planned a Christmas caravan getaway have been advised to check the latest weather updates before setting off on their journey.
The Camping and Caravanning Club has urged people travelling to a caravan site over the Christmas and new year period to check with the site directly to ensure they can still be accommodated.
Adverse weather conditions have affected the UK in recent weeks, with heavy snow and icy conditions making travelling on the UK's roads treacherous.
Some areas of the country have suffered more than others so it is crucial that those planning a Christmas caravan holiday check weather and traffic updates before embarking on their journey.
The Camping and Caravanning Club will be posting updates and information on its Siteseeker website, so caravanners will have a more up-to-date picture of current conditions and site closures.
With tricky driving conditions across much of the UK, the AA has urged drivers to be flexible with their travel plans over the festive period and also pack an emergency pack including, food, drink, blankets and a fully charged mobile phone.
