A staycation boom is expected this summer after the government warned against travelling abroad for holidays.
According to the BBC The Caravan and Motorhome Club are predicting a “cork popping from a bottle” situation in the coming months.
With hopefully the end of lockdown in the UK on the horizon and the COVID-19 uncertainty in many other countries, families will be looking to book their holidays in the UK this year.
Brexit is also another factor that could sway people into having a staycation. New rules mean that UK citizens will only be allowed to stay in an EU country for 90 out of 180 days.
For people looking to buy a holiday or retirement home abroad in countries like Spain and France, these restrictions will force some to look closer to home.
For many, looking to book a staycation for the first time, this could create an opportunity for holiday park owners to sell the advantages of owning a static caravan or lodge in the UK.
Owning your own holiday home comes with many advantages. No more spending hours on the internet to book a holiday or queues at busy airports.
With the modern interiors and mod-cons, today’s static homes are a million miles away from the cold drab interiors our grandparents would holiday in. Central heating, flat screen TV’s and modern kitchens are standard on most homes.
Being part of the community is another aspect of owning a holiday park home, combined with the facilities and entertainment many holiday parks offer. There could not be a better time for holiday park owners to promote the joys of holidaying in the UK.
The costs of owning a park home including pitch/site fees cover the cost of making water and electricity available to your holiday home. These fees can vary depending on the location and can cost several thousands of pounds.
The cost of purchasing a holiday home or paying for site fees can be spread easily into monthly payments. If you’re a holiday park owner looking to offer your customers funding, then contact Orchard Funding for more information.
