The Rise of the UK Caravan Holiday

How does this impact on you?

Caravan holidays are a great way to unwind and escape to some of the great places the UK has to offer. When caravan parks had to close earlier this year, you’d have thought that the future of Caravanning was negative. Quite the opposite.

To understand how Caravanners were feeling, we surveyed 1,000 UK consumers who told us there’s been a number of silver linings as a result of the pandemic.

So, what are these and how do they impact on you? Read on to find out.

Positive environmental impact

One of the big outcomes of lockdown was the positive impact restricted travel had on the environment, which looks set to continue. Consumers are now paying more attention to the impact their travel has on the environment and local communities:
