Why People Favour Caravan Holidays

As the years go by, more and more people are turning to Allens Caravans holidays during the summer. They are drawn by the prospect of sunny spells, a sense of nostalgia and making memories that can be treasured for years to come, but why do people seem to favour caravan holidays over the classic trip to Spain or a short break in Italy? Well, let's take a look at a few of the reasons why caravan holidays are so great and what they can offer you this summer.


While the initial, upfront cost of a holiday home may set you back a few, the long-term financial benefits are excellent. Not only does the investment pay for itself - with interest - it also provides you with a home away from home, meaning you don't have to go through the hassle of trying to book the most sought after spot on the caravan site.

In addition, it means you get to spend your summer vacation in your favourite holiday destination. You have a number of locations to choose from, so think carefully about where you love to travel, what activities you want nearby and which location offers the best facilities for you and your family.

Staying close to home

Leaving the country can be a daunting thought for some but you don't need to abandon the good old UK to have the perfect holiday. Staying close to home can be great for some people as it helps to make them feel safe and secure during their time away, therefore diminishing stress levels and making the experience more enjoyable as a whole.


While the popularity of glamping continues to grow, it doesn't offer you all of the facilities you need to truly enjoy your time away from home. A lack of home comforts and conveniences can often end up making the experience stressful, uncomfortable and unenjoyable. This is why caravan holidays are generally favoured over glamping because with a caravan, you have everything you need in one handy location, as well as a few of the benefits and experiences associated with glamping such as stargazing and roasting marshmallows!


Many caravan parks offer three main options; touring pitches, holiday homes and residential caravans, which means you have the choice to either enjoy a short break at a park in a beautiful location or move to a beautiful countryside park for good. In addition, you also have the freedom to visit the park any time you want throughout the year so you can save yourself the hassle of trying to bag that perfect, sought-after pitch.
