Buying vs Renting a Caravan
When you buy a caravan it’s like buying another home, it’s not just the cost of the van itself but the fittings and furnishings too that you have to consider meaning the total cost can leap up very quickly. When you hire a caravan from Kingswood Caravan Hire all of the items you need to enjoy a wonderful, luxury camping holiday are included in the price.
Everything from an electric hook up option, gas supply, specialist toilet paper so as not to block the chemical toilet and all the crockery and cooking supplies you need to name but a few. It’s like renting an apartment rather than a hotel room but of course, this one is on wheels so you can take it anywhere you wish to.
At Bristol’s largest caravan and camping centre they stock the self-tow caravans with literally everything apart from food and drink that you will need on your holiday, and they even supply a wheel clamp and caravan insurance for your extra security.
We recommend if you are new to caravanning that you join the caravan club. Here you can plan your stays throughout the country as they are going to be busy this year. You can choose the best campsites that fit your needs and the facilities that you require to make your caravanning holiday live up to its expectations.
It will help you plan how far between sites you wish to travel each day or if you want to stay at certain campsites for extended periods or not. Remember, towing a caravan can limit you on the speed you are allowed to safely travel at as well as finding some roads difficult to navigate through if you are an inexperienced caravan tower.
It will also help you connect with your favourite activities such as hiking, walking, surfing etc so you choose the right campsites for you and your family.

Holidays in the UK this year, because of the current restrictions have doubled and now account for 20% of all holidays taken, possibly more now that the restrictions have been extended in the middle of our summertime.
