The number of campervan vacations to the UK rose by 58% in the first half of 2023.

The UK has long been a popular travel destination for both domestic and foreign travellers looking to experience the best of the British countryside, according to Max Schmidt, Head of CamperDays. In fact, its popularity doesn’t seem to be declining, as shown by a 58% increase in campervan vacations to the UK in the first half of 2023.

“Campervanning is just a more opulent version of the familiar and beloved camping trip. Many travellers don’t want to leave the conveniences of home and have to make do without necessities like being able to make a cup of tea, using the lavatory, getting a hot shower and having a decent bed to sleep in. The ideal answer to this is a motorhome, which serves as your very own mobile, fully furnished hotel or vacation rental.

“Another factor contributing to the rising popularity of campervan holidays is without a doubt the flexibility and freedom offered to travellers regarding their route, schedule, and duration of travel. Since they are not bound to a single hotel or apartment, vacationers are free to explore the area at their own pace. Since there are no check-in or check-out times, they can either make more spontaneous plans or set their own agenda.

Unsurprisingly, Scotland has received 55% of the UK’s campervan bookings this year. Harris Beach, the enchanted Fairytale Pools on the Isle of Skye, and not to mention the renowned Loch Lomond, all contribute to Scotland’s unrivalled beauty. Additionally, it is the only country in the UK where it is currently legal to camp wild, giving potential campers many more options for experiencing nature without paying campsite fees.

The Cotswolds and the South Downs are two additional well-liked vacation spots in the UK. These bucolic regions of the country are accessible to city dwellers seeking a quick break from the bustle of the city and the stresses of modern life because they are only two hours from the centre of London, where one in four of this year’s campervan bookings were made.

Camping has lost some of its appeal when attending live, multi-day events like sporting events and music festivals. Visitors can travel to these events with the confidence that they’ll get a good night’s sleep and a hot shower at the end of a busy day because sporting events and festivals like Glastonbury and Le Mans 24 Hours allow guests to glamp in their own vehicles.
