​Location, on-site facilities, and then cost – how caravanners choose where to pitch up

Press Release   •   Jan 17, 2018 08:50 GMT

Choosing the right location is even more important than cost for a successful caravan holiday – so say 80% of customers.

The caravan insurance specialists asked over 400 of their customers* what their most important considerations were when choosing a site to pitch up and found that:

  • nearly 4 in 5 caravanners (79.71%) said the location is the deciding factor where choosing to have a holiday;
  • nearly two-thirds (61.86%) said the on-site facilities;
  • the cost is a key influencer for just over half (54.52%);
  • under half of caravanners (44.99%) said the type of site (e.g. family friendly, adults only) was important.

Being pet-friendly and being pet-free were also stated as reasons to choose a particular site to pitch up – with one caravanner saying the most central factor was how far it was to walk to the pub!
