Where is the cheapest place in Europe to go camping?

With the unpredictable British weather, camping abroad can be tempting. But once you add up the cost of ferry crossings and fuel, it can be an expensive business. Finding lower priced campsites can help bring the cost down.

It's perhaps not surprising that Switzerland has been named as the priciest country to camp in Europe – but where are the cheapest campsites to be found?

A new study of 23,000 campsites across Europe has found the lowest priced and most expensive countries to pitch up.

It may not be top of many people's travel bucket list, but the results of the study by international travel and booking portal, camping.info, revealed that the former Soviet Republic of Belarus is the cheapest option. The average cost per night for two people is £10.06.

Elsewhere in Europe, it costs less than £13 to spend a night pitched up on a campsite in Romania, Turkey, Albania, Moldova or North Macedonia.

At the other end of the scale, campers need to fork out an average of around £32.38 a night to pitch up in Switzerland, according to the study. Italy (£32.23), Croatia (£30.66) and Spain (£29.91) are the next most expensive countries.

The international travel and booking portal, camping.info, compared the prices of 23,000 European campsites. On average, two adults pay between £10 and £32 for a night on a European campsite during peak season, including a pitch, vehicle, electricity and local taxes.

Maximilian Möhrle, of camping.info, said: “The number of holidays spent in a tent, caravan or motorhome has been on the rise for years now, and the camping sector is recording significant growth. There have never been so many campers in Europe before.”
