Caravan Holiday Checklist

Caravan Holiday Checklist

Looking for a quick long weekend away before summer's out? We would, too! But in your haste to get away from the daily humdrum that is life, ensure you don't forget all those essentials you may need, especially if you are going away on a caravan holiday.

 Fear not, here at Allens Caravan's, we have prepared a last-minute list for you, just grab a pen and tick off as you pack:

Refreshments - Not just for the journey, but for the first night, too. Ensuring you pack snacks as these will come in handy for the journey - especially if you get stuck in traffic. It is also a good idea to take essentials such as tea bags, coffee, sugar, milk, bread and other breakfast essentials to get you through the first night and morning after a long day travelling.

Entertainment - Are you taking the kids with you? Ensure you pack enough to keep them entertained along the way, such as games, iPod's, reading material, and toys for the younger ones.

Kitchen Essentials - Many people forget to take core kitchen essentials with them, such as washing up liquid, dishcloths, mugs, plates, bowls, cups and cutlery - not forgetting that one item we have all forgotten at some point, a tin opener!

Also, if you are planning to have a barbeque during your caravan holiday, don't forget to take your grill tools, too.

Toiletries - Aside from the obvious essentials (such as soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, body wash, etc.), there are a lot of toiletries you may need during your caravan holiday. Things such as hand, bath and face towels, a hairdryer, hairbrushes, toilet tissue and so on are all essential for life on the road.

Along with toiletries, it is sensible to pack a mini first aid kit with plasters, antiseptic cream, insect repellent, pain killers and any relevant medication for the children, too.

As well as all of the above, you will need to think about insurance and breakdown documents, bed linen, chargers, phones, weather suitable attire and footwear, swimwear, sleeping bags (if needed), and pillows.

Seem like a huge amount of packing for what should be a relaxing trip? Well, why not book your UK caravan break with Allen's Caravans, and let us do all the worrying for you?
