The Vango Balletto Air 390 Elements Shield 2022 caravan awning

Easter holidays are here! Ordinarily there would be a general feeling of wild abandon as we plan days out or holidays. But listening to the news it’s surprising that anyone is venturing out of their homes at all. It all sounds pretty grim. The increase in the cost of living, heating costs and fuel are understandably making families tighten their belts and save more pennies for rainy days.

While this might put some families off booking holidays or weekends away, others are coming to understand the value of holidaying in the UK as a cost-effective option for quality leisure time and going on daily adventures.

To use a family of four as an example, According to Thomas Cook, a 10 day all-inclusive getaway in Europe for a family of four can cost anything from £1600 to £2000, and a four star package holiday in Greece could cost around £3000. On top of that there continues to be a bubbling uncertainty around travel restrictions due to the pandemic.

While the cost of a UK staycation varies according to accommodation facilities, location and the time of year, a holiday on a UK campsite will cost far less than a European package holiday. If camping, that includes the upfront purchase of a family tent! Whether holidaying as a couple, with friends or as a family, a staycation has a lot to offer in terms of both cost and enjoyment.

Of course, BCH Camping customers understand the benefits of a UK holiday, many of whom enjoy a staycation more than once a year.

Unsurprisingly, caravanning is more popular than ever, with a sharp increase in the number of caravanners under the age of 40. The Caravan and Motorhome Club stated that its membership increased by 14% when pandemic restrictions were lifted. The smart way to holiday is catching on!

At BCH Camping we supply a range of caravanning products which includes a comprehensive selection of caravan awnings.

What would you do with the extra space a caravan awning can give you? Perhaps you’d put your dining table and chairs in the awning, use it as extra bedroom space, make it a dog-friendly area to keep the interior of the caravan clean of mud and dirt, or simply use it for storage. You can customise the space into whatever enhances the enjoyment of your holiday.  

A popular choice of awning amongst our customers is the Vango Balletto Air 390 Elements Shield 2022 caravan awning.
