When planning a holiday many people overlook travelling by caravan and instead fork out thousands for accommodation in hotels, backpackers, motels or even apartments in a more traditional holiday. There are numerous benefits to travelling by caravan, including the amazing value it offers and the opportunity to be close to nature and an opportunity for ultimate privacy. Caravans are a great way to travel whether you are a family, a couple wanting a romantic getaway or a bunch of friends looking for a great time – there are options for everyone.
Save Money with a Caravan:
Renting a caravan can save you money on accommodation, but can be especially useful if you’re visiting a new state or country where you would have to otherwise rent a car for travelling around. A caravan is literally your accommodation and transport in one, ensuring that you have everything you need whenever you need it – how’s that for travel. Hotels can be one of the biggest costs of a holiday and by booking a significantly more affordable caravan you will be able to stretch your budget a little bit longer, extending your trip further or allowing to splash out along the way.
Stay Where you Want:
Caravans provide the ultimate in freedom, you can stay in numerous places and camping sites allowing you to customise your trip to meet your needs – all of course offer safe travel locations. If you are planning on doing a long road trip you can easily camp along the way to break the trip up. Many countries around the world have very cheap, or even free, camping grounds available for you to use with a number of facilities. The great thing about travelling by caravan is that you are independent from the “grid” and can get by with everything you have with you.
You Can Pack as Much as You Want:
While I don’t usually encourage that you travel with a lot, travelling by caravan means that you can take as much stuff as you want with you. This is perfect especially for families traveling with small children as it means you can take all their creature comforts along, ensuring they enjoy the holiday too. Travelling by caravan also makes it possible for you to easily bring the family dog along, ensuring you get a holiday for the whole family.
Create Special Memories:
If you stayed in a caravan when you were a child on family holidays, then you’ll probably have some very special memories associated with holidaying in caravans. As an adult it’s your opportunity to create a special holiday based around this convenient form of transport. You can easily transform a caravan holiday into a romantic holiday by bringing along some candles, some good music and a special someone. On the flip side you can ensure the perfect boys weekend away by bringing enough good beverages a packet of cards, and some tunes to keep you all entertained. Caravans are perfect for families too, because you can easily bring enough changes of clothes to keep the kids looking respectable! Whatever holiday you have planned, you can make it super special with a little forward planning.
