Staycations are huge right now, with many Brits more than happy to stay in our beautiful country for their holidays. Here’s 10 reasons why you should do it in style by investing in your very own campervan.

Staycations have been growing in popularity over the last few years with many Brits choosing to have holidays in our beautiful country rather than abroad.

With so many campervans on the market to accommodate all lifestyles and budgets, you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you’re a dab hand at DIY and fancy a project, you could convert an old van or minivan into your own hotel on wheels.

Here’s 10 reasons why you should do it in style by investing in your very own campervan.


It’s an investment, not a purchase

A well looked after campervan holds its value extremely well so when it comes to selling, you won’t necessarily lose out financially. Not only that, due to their popularity for festivals and other events, there’s big money to be made from renting it out when you’re not using it.


Running costs are much lower than a holiday abroad

Although the upfront cost is significant, once you own it, you can wave goodbye to expensive accommodation and travel bills for future holidays. It’s also perfect for cutting down on other expenses, such as dining out as you can enjoy a home cooked meal with a view instead.


You can have your cake and eat it too

If you don’t mind long drives, you can explore the world without being having to stay in the same hotel for a week.  When you start to get bored of your view, you can just start the engine and find somewhere new.


Holidays take less planning

Bad work week? Don’t worry about booking a last minute trip and paying well over the odds just to get a quick break when you have everything you need for a weekend getaway. So hop in, fill it with your loved ones, a few bare essentials and off you go!


It gives you freedom

If you book a holiday and the hotel is not what you expected, guess what? You’re stuck there. With a campervan the world really is your oyster, so you can pick yourselves up and move on if you find yourself disappointed.


There’s something for everyone

It’s completely up to you where you go! Meaning you can tailor-make a holiday that suits everyone. An energetic hill hike one day can easily be counteracted by a lazy beach day the next. All it takes is a little compromise.


You can make it your own

According to research carried out by Travelbag.co.uk, 37% of Brits admitted they miss their bed more than their pets (15%) and friends and family (4%) when on holiday. The beauty of campervan holidays is that it is your own bed. It’s entirely your own place, and you can do what you need to do to it to make it perfect.


Holiday from the word go

Gone are the days when you spend hour after hour waiting around in airports and for hotel transfers. With a campervan, you’re in charge of your own destiny. You stay still and relax when it suits you, and you move along when it suits you too (unless you get stuck in traffic). The holiday is yours from start to finish.


No one is left behind

Pets are a huge part of the family, and shouldn’t miss out on the holiday just because they have paws and a tail. Take them along with you for even more family fun without the worry or guilt of having to leave them behind.


It’s what you make it

Whether you’re in the mood for some family fun, a romantic getaway, or a trip catching up with old friends, you can make it whatever you want it to be.  With no limitations to where you can go, no two trips will ever be the same.
