Reasons Why You Should Purchase A Caravan


There are lots of misconceptions about caravans and their dubious reputation can be off-putting when families are considering purchasing one for future holidays. The reality is that caravans are brilliant leisure vehicles and you can enjoy several holidays in a touring caravan. Here at Bicester Caravan & Leisure, we know first-hand just how amazing caravans can be and we want to share with you why we believe your next big purchase should be one of our excellent brand new caravans or used caravans


You have complete freedom


When you own a caravan, you can go on holiday whenever you want and there are several incredible campsites throughout the UK to explore. You won’t be restricted to visiting places with hotels and B&Bs, and you can go wherever you want throughout the year. 

Not to mention, you can enjoy both small family holidays and big group getaways, and a caravan allows you to spend your free time with the people you care about most. It is much easier to plan holidays for lots of people when you don’t have the hassle of booking accommodation and if your friends also have caravans, you can all set up on pitches next to each other. You can make memories that will last a lifetime when you’re camping. 


It makes going on holiday cheaper


Whilst not all caravan makes and models are cheap upfront, they are undeniably a brilliant investment. With used caravans available too, there is a budget-friendly solution for all families that are interested in purchasing a caravan. 


The cost of a caravan will soon pay for itself after a few holidays too as you won’t have the expense of paying for a hotel every time you go away. Staying in a hotel can be very expensive, particularly as there are usually no cooking facilities in a hotel room. So, not only are you paying for a hotel but you’re also paying for restaurant food. With campsites costing as little as £10 a night, your whole family can sleep comfortably inside your caravan for significantly less than a hotel. Of course, with less money being spent on accommodation, you’ll be able to put more money towards having fun whilst you’re on holiday.


You can get off the beaten track


Having a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life and exploring somewhere new can be both relaxing and exciting. Getting off the beaten track and finding hidden corners of the UK to visit is much easier when you have a caravan. 


A caravan enables you to explore multiple places during one holiday too and you can stay on lots of different campsites as setting up camp is really straightforward. You can go wherever the road takes you, discovering all sorts of small independent campsites and beautiful quiet beaches. The best part is, you don’t have to stay in a tent to be surrounded by nature, which is decidedly less comfortable and has an even worse reputation than caravanning. 


It takes all the stress away


Planning a holiday and going somewhere new can sometimes be quite stressful, but with a caravan, you will have all of your home comforts. You can bring everything that you need and want with you in your caravan, and you won’t have to worry about not having enough space or going over your luggage allowance. You also get to set your own schedule, you won’t have to stick to meal times set by a hotel and with no specific leave time or place that you have to be, you can truly relax on a caravan holiday.
