Looking to book a last minute camping trip?

With the end of the summer holidays fast approaching, many people are looking to squeeze another few days or a weekend camping trip in before the children go back. Spaces are becoming very limited and you may find that you are left with little choice as to where you can go for a break away. Tent pitches without electric hook up are often the pitches that are most readily available, and if you are only going for a few days then you may feel that this type of pitch will be fine for you.

Although time is running out to book somewhere, you still need to carefully research a place before booking it. You may be surprised to find that not all sites have toilets and showers, and if you see the term “wild camping” then this is often the case.

It is important to read reviews of a site and check that their rules and regulations fit in with what you are looking for. For example, some sites do not allow BBQ’s or camp fires on site and others will have a no noise policy in place after 10pm.

If you have children you may want to check if they have a play area on site or a games room for them to use whilst away.

Cheap breaks in the UK

If you are looking to get away with the family this summer but are constricted to the school holidays, then you may be shocked at how much it costs to rent a caravan or stay at a resort during these times of the year. In the summer holidays, holiday goers can expect to pay towards £1000 a week for a breakaway in on the south coast. You may be surprised to find out that it is often cheaper to stay in a hotel rather than a caravan. If you have children with you then you will most likely all sleep in the same room but if you go to a place where there is plenty to do then you may not spend much time in your room anyway other than sleeping.

A four-night break in the school holidays in May 2018, staying in a Premier Inn Bournemouth, for example, can cost as little as £240 for a family of four. This can be a cheap break for all the family and still allows you to have some of the comforts you have at home such as proper beds, a TV and maybe even a full English breakfast.

Summer holidays in Peru

Many of us dream of going on holiday and often many of us only get to do it every couple of years or so. If you are looking for your summer 2018 holiday and have yet to decide on a location, why not pick Peru.  Peru can offer you a bit of a different holiday to what you may be used to, so why not ditch the usual beach holiday for an amazing adventure.

Huacachina is a desert oasis town that really is very different to anything else you may have experienced. This place is situated in a very isolated little spot which allows a relaxing holiday with beautiful scenery. Whilst there you will also have the opportunity to have an adrenaline fuelled trip by taking up the sand sports around the oasis town such as dune buggy rides and sandboarding.

On visiting this beautiful area of Peru you can also arrange excursions for winery tours and boat trips, one of the most fascinating ones being a boat trip to Ballestas to see the sea lions and penguins! There is so much to see on a trip to Peru that packing your camera is essential. This type of holiday will make memories that will last forever and can be enjoyed by all the family.

Seaside caravan holidays in the UK

If you’re looking to get away for a bit and spend some quality time with your loved ones, then a family break in a caravan can make for a great holiday. A caravan can be a home away from home and is often more practical than staying in a hotel, especially if you have young children. It means that during the warmer months, the children can go to bed and you can sit out on the deck or have a BBQ and still enjoy yourself rather than all being confined to one room.

When booking a caravan you need to research carefully the owners or company you are booking with. If you decide to book a caravan privately then you need to be sure that you can trust the person you are booking it with that the caravan will be as described but also that they do actually have a caravan that they can let out. Never book a holiday through someone you don’t know and pay in full without any assurance that the holiday is actually genuine.

Staying in a caravan will often mean that you get some mod cons that you may not get in your hotel room. Theses may include a microwaves, fridges/ freezers and a separate rooms for a child to sleep in and play with their toys in. This also means you can put your children to bed and still enjoy the main living space that may not get in a hotel unless you pay for a suite.

Holidaying with friends or family can be fun and a great way to allow everyone time to enjoy their holiday.
