Caravan holiday, or holiday abroad? Which would you prefer?

New research has shown that parents are favouring the caravan holiday as opposed to travelling abroad. Four in ten parents have said that package holidays require too much planning, and a fifth admit that the airport experience is far too stressful, according to results of a survey of 2000 parents.Caravan holiday, or holiday abroad?

What were the other results?

  • More than two thirds of those surveyed admitted they would choose a caravan holiday to not only avoid airport stress, but for the adventure, flexibility and freedom that is associated with them.
  • More than half of the parents said they missed their home comforts on a “traditional” holiday.
  • 47 per cent claimed carrying around large amounts of luggage ruins a holiday for them.

Opting to take a caravan holiday over a holiday abroad has been said to save families around £10,000. Of course, this will vary depending on how many times a year you would normally take a trip, and where you would go. But it is safe to say, a caravan holiday will offer a more affordable option to taking the whole family abroad.

Celebrity fans

A number of celebrities have been known to enjoy a caravan holiday as opposed to the hassle of going abroad. Amongst famous fans of a caravan holiday is Dame Helen Mirren. She is in fact a confirmed member of the Caravan Club, and it has been said that she enjoys caravan holidays to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Musician, writer and TV presenter Rowland Rivron and his wife are also known to be keen caravanners, with his wife even writing her own “Caravan Cookbook”.

Gwyneth Paltrow has also been known to enjoy a caravan holiday in the past! Although hers wasn’t quite the caravan in the traditional sense of the word, it was more of a luxury house on wheels, and she was joined by Beyoncé and Jay Z…
