Advice for camping and caravan novices

I often get comments on my blog from people who like the sound of caravanning and camping but have never given it a go. Others did it as kids but are unsure about how to introduce their own families to similar holidays.

We are massive fans of the freedom that comes with camping and caravan holidays. You’re not tied down to flight departures, luggage restrictions or set meal times. We can stay in thousands of locations around the UK and Europe, getting there under our own steam and enjoying the comforts of home when we arrive.

With this in mind I thought I’d share two new websites packed with advice to help novices discover the freedom of camping and caravanning holidays.

Freedom to go

Freedom to go website

I really like this website, which has been put together with the support of the National Caravan Council, the Camping and Caravan Club and the Caravan Club. It’s packed full of inspiration for outdoor getaways from camping to glamping and caravanning.

Features include campsite, dealer and rental listings, as well as tools to help you choose the right leisure vehicle and holiday for you. The site also offers an introduction to both the Camping and Caravan Club and the Caravan Club, which allow you to link up with like-minded travellers.
You can follow Freedom to go on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest where the site shares inspiration for getaways, competitions and posts from its blog.

This website is run by the Caravan Club and is focussed on caravan and motorhome holidays.

A great feature is the decision tree, which helps you find out what type of adventures would best suit you and your family based on budget, your current vehicle, holiday requirements, who you are travelling with and your interests.

The site also offers handy guides on buying and hiring caravans and motorhomes as well as storage and towing advice. Consider it your essential guide to getting your family on the road to caravan and motorhome adventures.

Feeling inspired? We might see you on the road soon!
