5 Interesting Things You Didn’t Know About UK Campervan Holidays
Camper van holidays in the UK are great fun for any budget, and the world is your oyster to see and do what you want. To show you what makes them so amazing, here are some interesting secrets about motorhome holidays from Bunk Campers.
Wild Camping and Safe Nights
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to stay in a paid campsite or caravan park to get a good night’s sleep in a camper. All around the UK, there are lots of places to stay for free for a walk on the wild side and a chance to save money. Wild camping is becoming increasingly popular, whilst in Ireland an initiative called Safe Nights Ireland has created lots of secure car parks for campervans so that you can find a cheap and safe place to sleep when touring the Emerald Isle.
Join the Campervan club
Every summer, tons of camper enthusiasts come together for a variety of events, rallies and even festivals that celebrate the joys of campervan holidays. Festivals such as CamperJam are heaps of fun for families, couples and groups who want to spice up their holiday in a friendly environment; a great addition to the itinerary.
Road Trips Can be Green and eco-friendly!
Bunk Campers has made a special effort to make our service and vehicles more eco-friendly; all of our engines run on advanced diesel technology, with lower fuel consumption and emissions. We even clean our vehicles with water collected from the roofs of our offices! In addition to this, we offer our customers plenty of advice on how to be green on your campervan getaway.
More for Your Money
Especially if you’re splitting the cost of campervan hire, they can save you lots of money on your road trip. By renting a camper you get the car and hotel in one, and Bunk’s vehicles all have excellent fuel-economy that makes them affordable to run. Being able to whip up your own home-cooked meals means you don’t have to eat out every night, so that you can enjoy indulging more when you do. All in all, you get a lot more for your money on a campervan holiday.
Whether singing along to your favourite CDs on the drive, or waking up to a walk on the beach in a morning, campervan holidays have heaps of special moments that you’d never have imagined. In bringing everyone closer together, you have a holiday like no other. You’ll be telling stories about when Dad drove off still attached to the mains, or Mum fell asleep snoring half way through a game of cards, for years to come!
You really can’t describe what makes a UK campervan holiday so special until you’ve been for yourself. Every day brings a new activity, challenge, or anecdote to tell when you get home. That’s what makes them so interesting.
