In recent years, as the economy has waned, more and more people haveinstead of heading abroad.
And while many will opt for AirBnB-style apartments or hotel rooms, many Brits are choosing to book caravan holidays instead.
With that in mind, here are five reasons you might want to consider booking a caravan break in the new year.
One of the best things about caravanning has to be embracing the great outdoors! There's nothing better than waking up in the morning and feeling the fresh air, hopefully with a fantastic view.
This is all the more enjoyable during summer when you can chillout outside your caravan until the sun goes down, perhaps roasting some marshmallows over the fire.
Of course, this is all dependent on the weather, but the great thing about caravanning, when compared to camping, is that when the rain does start to pour, you stay nice and dry in your own home away from home.
One of the downsides of staying in a hotel can be the restrictive meal times and menu options.
But with a caravan holiday you have the freedom to prepare whatever you want, whenever you want.
Firstly, making your own food will save you a lot of cash, which you can then put towards the rest of your trip away.
Additionally, it can also allow you eat a lot healthier, and it's a lot easier for those with strict dietary requirements.
While going abroad can be great, it does come with a lot of hassle. Whether it be trying to cram everything into your bag without going over the weight allowance, making sure to remember all of your passports and other travel documents, or sorting out travel insurance.
But with a caravan holiday, you don't have to worry about any of this! Instead, you can just jump in and set off whenever you please, with the freedom to head off the beaten track if you wish, and as much luggage as youcan pack in!
Caravan holidays are very sociable experiences, whether with oldor new friends! Some of the bigger caravans on offer can accommodate quite a few guests so why not invite some friends along for the weekend?
It can be a great way to spend time with friends who you don't get the chance to see every often, and you may also find yourself meeting entirely new friends on the caravan site.
There's also lots of activities for both kids and adults at many caravan parks. We spoke towho told us that their parks feature all kinds of things to do such as fishing, watersports, swimmingpools, play areas and even golf courses.
While you might have had some mixed experiences with caravans in your youth, it's fair to say that they've come a long way in recent times!
Modern caravans now come with lots of mod cons and can be a lot more luxurious than you might expect!
For example, check out this cute travel pod! Of course,there are also much more extravagant options available too such as the big RVs which can feel more like a band's tour bus than a caravan!
We hope this has given you some insight into how much fun a caravan holiday can be. It may become something you love doing every year!
