Camping and caravanning are two ‘hidden treasures’ in the UK where Britons can still enjoy a summer vacation.
Bookings for camping and caravan holidays are at an all-time high, but suggestions that the summer months are totally sold out are false, according to one expert. These are the “hidden gems” where Brits can still enjoy a staycation throughout the summer.
As the summer holidays approach, ever-changing travel restrictions are causing an increasing number of Britons to forego overseas vacation plans in favor of something more local. However, due to the increased demand for camping, caravanning, and UK staycations, many accommodation providers around the country are already fully booked during the peak season.
Fortunately, according to Ed Bassett, UK Country Manager for Camptoo, this does not rule out a vacation.
In reality, Mr Bassett told This Website that there are still a few options for embarking on a truly unique UK vacation.
He claims that “thinking beyond the box” is the key.
“While staycation bookings are at an all-time high, there is still availability for individuals looking to rent a campervan or motorhome with Camptoo over the summer months,” Mr Bassett told This website.
“We have over 900 cars listed across the UK at different budget levels, so check out the Camptoo website to see what’s available in your preferred area for your desired vacation dates.”
It may, however, necessitate taking a vacation outside of the summer’s most popular destinations.
He continued, “Scotland and Cornwall have been the most popular Camptoo destinations booked so far, accounting for 30% of all Camptoo bookings in the last 30 days.”
Cornwall has been named as one of the most popular staycation destinations in the UK this year.
According to Visit Cornwall, the May half-term saw an estimated 390,630 trips booked, up 70% from the previous year before the lockdown restrictions were even lifted.
According to data from holiday rentals search engine HomeToGo, searches for holidays in Scotland during the same period were up 255 percent compared to 2019.
Mr. Bassett stated, “Think beyond the box when it comes to places to visit.”
“We recommend broadening your search to include places like Norfolk, Dorset, Somerset, and the North Yorkshire coast, where you’ll likely find greater room and campsite availability.”
