Wales Becomes The New Hotspot For Motorhomers

Wales becomes the new place to motorhome

By William Coleman

Wales has some of the most picturesque scenery that our country has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a stunning coast line or a secluded woodland setting that looks straight out of a Lord Of The Ring movie, Wales has it all.

It seems that the secret escapes Wales have to offer are now longer so secret. There has been a large increase, reports say, in the ownership and rental of motorhomes in Wales. From both Welsh natives and visiting tourist.

The beauty of a motorhome holiday is the huge variety of motorhomes to choose from and locations to stay at. The motorhome comes in so many different shapes and sizes, there will be one to suit any need. If you want to take the other half away on a last minute get away or the whole family during the school holidays, you will be spoilt for choice.

Why has Wales become such a haven for people looking to take a motorhome holiday? Pronto Motorhome Hire say they are seeing a large increase in visitors from abroad who want to tour around Wales to get a totally unique experience, something that Wales has plenty of. Naunton Dickens, Managing Director of the Caerphilly-based firm, tells Business News Wales what business is looking like for them: “We have seen an 8.5% increase in the number of motorhome hires made from last year, with some exciting new trends taking shape. The gains have been made outside of the high season, with many more people hiring motorhomes from Easter onwards this year. The good spring weather really helped.”

Pronto has also noticed the average age of customers highing being younger than usual. Pronto feels this is due to the new “Hipster Generation being a lot more interested in staying in the UK for their holidays and the financial savings that come with the modern Staycation.

It also appears, as I have mentioned in previous articles Brexit Boom For Staycation Industry, Brexit has a large part to play in the recent surge in UK based holidays. Pronto believes that European visitors from Spain, Germany, Holland and even as far as New Zealand are taking full advantage of the weak pound to get the most bang for their buck when they are on their vacation.

For me Wales has always had a special place in my heart due to wide range of locations. The variety of the landscape is so unique. From the Snowdonia National Park to the amazing coastline of Llyn Peninsula If you have never visited Wales I urge you to.
