In a recent survey, AutoTrader found that 40% of people are planning a ‘staycation’ in the UK this summer (government restrictions allowing). So if you’re also hoping to make the most of the British sun and spend some quality time closer to home, take a look at our top tips for staying safe as well as having an incredible time!
In Control of Being Clean
In your own caravan or motorhome, you can be sure the facilities you’re using, like your kitchen, toilet, or shower, are completely clean and not potentially contaminated by anyone outside of your household.
Campsites and caravan parks tend to be cheaper than booking a hotel or B&B. You also save on pricey airplane tickets and other little fees that always seem to add up when travelling abroad. When travelling in the UK with your motorhome or caravan, you can cook your own meals and be your own transport to and from home.
There’s No Place Like Home
A ‘staycation’ gives you the chance to have exciting and fulfilling adventures close to home. You can explore your local area, or travel to a spot in the UK that you’ve never been to before. There are mountains, beaches, lakes and woodland for you and your family to make the most of… all without the risk of travelling abroad in these unpredictable circumstances.
The Safe Bet Doesn’t Mean Boring!
Speaking of the current coronavirus situation, it has put a halt to many foreign holiday plans, and left people wondering if they’ll get a break at all this year. While it may not be scuba-diving in the Bahamas, or hiking the Appalachian trail that you were hoping for, the reality is that staying in the UK is currently the best way to ensure you and your family won’t get stranded abroad or stuck quarantining in an unfamiliar place.
