Campervan staycations are here to stay

Recent research has revealed a whopping 68% of the UK will book a campervan staycation in 2022. Will you be one of them?

A fantastic piece of research released this month by Sterling Insurance has revealed that 68% of Brits have confirmed that they plan to enjoy a campervan staycation in the next year. What’s more, 1 in 10 of those surveyed actually want to sell-up, purchase a campervan of their own and embark on full-time VanLife! 

This comes as no surprise to us here at Calico Campers. This year we’ve welcomed so many first-time campervanners to the #CalicoCommunity, all of which have the same feedback; that they want this to be their lives, all the time.

The report released by Sterling Insurance and covered by Travel Daily shows that 41% of those who staycationed in a campervan or motorhome during the Covid-19 pandemic have completely changed their opinions and find the open-road lifestyle more appealing than they did before.

Why a staycation?

The research asked respondents what their key motivators were for embarking on a campervan staycation. The top three reasons were revealed as…

To see more of the UK

To spend more time with family

To improve mental health

Those who did hire a campervan during the pandemic were asked if they’d hire a campervan or motorhome again. A fantastic 39% of respondents said YES! This is great news for our campervan hire industry especially given the ongoing Coronavirus crisis and continuous confusion over overseas travel restrictions. 

Your 2022 holiday (could look like this)

We might be biassed, but this country really does have everything you could ever want from a holiday with friends or family. The beaches in places like Cornwall, Dorset, Bournemouth, the Isle of Harris and Wales are unbelievably stunning. The roads to drive on through Snowdonia, South West Scotland and the Lake District National Park are just some of the best you’ll find anywhere in the world. The abundance of natural beauty to explore, the finest restaurants to the best Chippy’s, old quaint British pubs to high-end cocktail bars, the UK really is there for the taking. 

What’s more, if you book to experience a road trip adventure with us at Calico Campers, we help you plan your holiday for free, using our own experience built up over the last ten years of travelling throughout the UK.

Be inspired...

Of course you don’t have to take our recommendations of where to go. You might already have somewhere you’ve never been to before that you’d love to visit. Perhaps you have friends or family hundreds of miles away that you could turn into a holiday by hiring a campervan to go and see them?

We thought we’d share some UK travel inspiration, in the hope that you reading this becomes one of the many people next year to hire a campervan with Calico Campers and experience a road trip like no other.
