It’s no secret: campervan travel is booming, and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. But why do people love it so much? If you’re curious about what campervan travel can offer you, read this article and find out what makes it so appealing to holidaymakers.
What are so many people attracted to travel by campervan? There are so many reasons, and we’re still discovering more! We’ve listed here the top 5 reasons why we love camping (and we believe that you will too).
There are so many incredible undiscovered camping spots… not just in any one country, but all over the world. Is there anything better than enjoying a dramatic sunset straight from your bed? But there’s another advantage related to this - you can park where you’ll need to wake up the next day. When planning an all-day trek, you’ll definitely appreciate getting out of bed in the morning, packing a snack and heading straight out. In addition, you’ll often reach a number of unique places that you’d miss if you weren’t in a motorhome. Just keep your eyes open.
When you travel by motorhome, you have total control over your plan. You’re not limited to check-in times at hotels, departure and arrival times, and what time to eat breakfast. You can choose the pace that suits you and your group, and allow yourself the luxury of not rushing anywhere (because it is a truly luxurious feeling). If you really want to take a break from the daily hustle and bustle and take a trip in peace, spontaneity is likely the greatest benefit.
In a campervan you have the ability to stop for the night where you want, and to move around exactly according to your feelings and schedule. You’ve got the choice of fully equipped campsites, farms (with the owner’s permission!), beaches, meadows…
Found a unique place to camp, and want to explore it more? Just made a bunch of friends? You can change the plan, because absolutely nothing is stopping you. You can always adapt and change along the way.
3. Holidays tailored to you
There are a broad variety of motorhomes and campervans for rent, depending on what you need. A short trip to the mountains as a couple, or a long holiday by the sea with children - a different type of vehicle is needed for each trip. And you can always choose the most suitable one, whether in terms of size or equipment. If you rent a motorhome, you can simply adjust your choice to the size of your group, the destination, your hobbies and the time of year. Camping is definitely not just for summer! If you choose a vehicle with good insulation and heating, you can even go skiing in the Alps without an issue. The only limit is your imagination.
4. You don’t need to give up comfort (in fact, it’s the opposite)
A motorhome isn’t just a vehicle. It's a complete miniature home with everything you need to live in, including a kitchen, bathroom with shower, and comfortable beds. In most of our vehicles you’ll have a large storage space to put almost everything from your favourite clothes to books, sports equipment, or even a motorcycle! You always have all your equipment with you on the road, so you don't have to pack and unpack again and again at each stop. This is a massive time and stress saver, and means you can spend more time making memories.
This leads neatly to our last reason…
5. Unforgettable memories
Campervan travel has become pretty popular lately, but it’s not just a consequence of the difficulties around international travel. It’s the amazing experiences that you can get through travelling in this unique way, a way that people have done for over 70 years. In the campervan you have the opportunity to explore completely new locations and get to know the true beauty of nature up close and personal. You can meet local people in each destination and get to know the authentic local culture. In the morning you have breakfast in nature, you can spend your days exploring different cities, historical monuments and local delicacies, and in the evening you can sit by a campfire with a glass of wine. There are many experiences that belong only to this form of travel, and it’s up to you what they will be.
So, if you’re still considering how to spend your next holiday, we recommend renting a campervan or motorhome! The Campiri team will be happy to help you choose the perfect vehicle for you. And if you’re interested in finding out more please check the other articles on our blog.
