Brits have been encouraged to try caravanning as a great way to get out and explore some beautiful new locations.
The Caravan Club recently conducted a survey in the run-up to its Find the Freedom competition - winners will receive a new Swift Challenger Sport 514 caravan worth £16,000 - which found that almost half (46 per cent) of UK residents repeatedly spend their holidays in the same destination.
According to the organisation, these people could be missing out on potentially great adventures, where they could be waking up to a new stunning view each morning.
With 50 per cent of respondents stating that they do not feel they have had a holiday unless they go abroad, the Club is keen to point out that there are some fantastic breaks to be had in the UK, with everything from surfing and bird-watching to cultural city vacations.
"The Caravan Club is convinced that people are falling back in love with the UK as a holiday destination, with caravanning becoming increasingly more popular," explained director of marketing Lawrence Bate.
"It's promising to see that nearly 70 per cent of people surveyed said they didn't need a holiday itinerary in place before heading off on holiday. This is exactly what caravanning is about, jumping in the car and heading off."
