Freedom? It’s a Campervan, Not a Vax Pass

The latest survey from Admiral reveals that Brits dream of travelling free, setting their own rules inside a campervan. No interrogation by hotel reception, no batch of expensive Covid tests demanded by airlines, no “have you booked and scanned in?” questions at a cafe or restaurant. There’s a lot to be said for campervan holidays, enjoy the freedom while you can.

With more Brits opting for a summer staycation this year, the latest research from  Admiral van insurance explores the increased appeal of campervan and motorhome holidays.

Admiral’s research found many Brits feel more comfortable with a staycation this year – more than a third (36%) confessed to feeling safer staying in the UK this summer because of the Covid-19 pandemic, while others felt the uncertainty around travel abroad made staying in the UK a better option for a summer holiday this year (21%).

With more holiday makers looking for a new type of holiday, the insurer found almost half of drivers (45%) would like to own a motorhome or campervan and a further one in five (22%) would be open to the idea of owning one.

The freedom a motorhome or campervan offers to Brits is the most appealing thing about owning one (56%). Drivers were also attracted by the ease of travelling around different parts of the UK (53%), the added comfort compared to a tent (44%) and the ability to stay in interesting places (40%).
