Save money and time with a UK road trip, says Camplify
Camplify analysed the cost and travelling time spent on a week-long package holiday abroad compared to week-long UK breaks, revealing savings of over £1,000.
The rental platform priced up three seven-day package holidays to La Palma (£524 per person, 4h 23m travel time), Tenerife (£534 per person, 4h 20m travel time), and Gran Canaria (£515 per person, 4h 30m travel time), based on two adults and two children arriving in July 2022 from a London airport.
Camplify then compared this with three seven-day UK road trips: Weymouth (£192 per person, 3h 13m travel time), Norfolk (£157.50 per person, 2h 27m travel time), and Yorkshire (£175 per person, 2h 17m travel time), based on departure from the central point of the UK and including the price of fuel.
The cheapest of the overseas holidays was Gran Canaria, which still came in at a cost 168% higher than Weymouth, the most expensive spot for UK road trippers included in Camplify’s research.
