The expense of purchasing a camper van is the main reason which puts people off trying this kind of alternative holiday. However, the easy solution is camper van hire. This can be done conveniently and quickly over the internet and your booking can be tailor-made to suit your needs.
What are the reasons why hiring a camper van is becoming increasingly popular?
Flexibility and Versatility
One of the benefits of a camper van holiday is the flexibility it offers you. It can be hired for shorter or longer periods depending on the time you have and your planned itinerary. Camper vans range in size from 2- to 7-berth so you’ll be sure to find the right size for your needs – whether you’re planning a holiday away with the family or with a group of friends. With camper vans available for hire all over the world, you also have a wide range of destinations to choose from.
Freedom to roam
If you always book a holiday at a seaside resort, you might find yourself falling into a rut and always doing the same things. And what happens if the resort doesn’t live up to your expectations? You are stuck there for the duration.
You can rest assured that no two days on a camper van holiday are ever the same. Each day you can wake up in another place to admire a different view and with a new area to explore. If you dislike a place, you have the freedom to pack up quickly and move onto somewhere new. This feeling of independence and spontaneity is one of the main reasons camper van devotees cited for their preference for this type of holiday.
If you tally up how much money you spend on your annual holiday, you’ll find that the bulk of your money is spent on accommodation, food and transport. The joy of camper van hire is that it is a place to stay and transport rolled into one. No forking out extra cash in the resort for taxis or battling the crowds on public transport.
As for your meals, all camper vans come with a fully-equipped kitchen including a cooker/microwave, fridge, cutlery and so on. This means that you can do as much – or as little – cooking as you like and save a fortune on restaurant bills.
You decide where you will park for the evening. You can choose between designated areas in national parks, council-run parks or commercial sites depending on how much privacy you want. You might prefer to spend quality time with your loved ones.
What you will find is that when parked with other campers, there is an immediate sense of hospitality and a warm welcome from the camper van community. If you prefer to be sociable, it is so easy to make new friends on this type of holiday.
If you have never been on a camper van holiday before and feel reticent, there is a wealth of information and advice on the internet about what the camper van contains and any optional extras you can purchase. If you’re looking for something different this year, hire a camper van. Once you’ve experienced the freedom and variety that the open road offers you, then you will be hooked for life!
