Travelworld practices what it preaches, offering staff use of a motorhome

Motorhomes lined up at Travelworld

A motorhome dealership is offering staff the use of a leisure vehicle for getaways this summer as it helps its customers staycation in the wake of the pandemic.

Erwin Hymer Centre Travelworld has invested in a HYMER T-Class S 685 for employee use, responding to the lack of certainty around foreign holidays.

The dealership, which is based in Staffordshire, already has a Carado I447 that the 68 members of staff can take on adventures, but has introduced a second leisure vehicle to the scheme in light of anticipated demand.

Ross Edwards, managing director of Travelworld, said: “As perks go, I think the use of a top-class motorhome is pretty good.

“The Carado I447 has been available to staff for a number of years and has been very popular, so we thought we’d reward our employees for their hard work and dedication over the last 12 months by adding another vehicle for them to book.

Travelworld has been in the motorhome business for more than four decades and has continued to serve the leisure vehicle community despite not being able to open its showroom for the past 12 months.

Instead, staff have helped prospective buyers in Covid-safe ways, with January and February proving to be record-breaking sales months, as people look ahead to holidays as restrictions ease.

Mr Ross added: “Everyone needs a holiday and, with trips abroad looking doubtful at best, and the domestic holiday market seeing unprecedented demand, these motorhomes will give our staff the chance to explore Britain with their families in a safe and exciting way and at no cost.”

Travelworld staff that take their employer up on the generous offer of borrowing the HYMER T-Class S 685 will discover a face-to-face seating area, two rear single beds and an electric drop down double bed inside.
