Save money and time with a UK road trip, says Camplify


UK caravan, motorhome and campervan peer-to-peer rental platform, Camplify, has highlighted the time and cost saved when opting for a UK road trip

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.

Claire James, Marketing Manager at Camplify, says,


While there will always be a need for the trusted package holiday, many holidaymakers are wanting to sample something new and exciting for their next summer getaway – especially as airport chaos is expected to ramp up as schools finish for summer.

Road trips and leisure vehicle holidays have been soaring in popularity since the start of the year and offer holidaymakers the opportunity to take to the open road and live by their own itinerary – at a more affordable price than many package holidays.

Plus, if holidaymakers get the itch to explore whilst overseas, car hire adds a significant expense on top of their accommodation and flights, whereas with a campervan or motorhome, all of that is included within the price. With campervans and motorhomes available from as little as £65 per day, holidaymakers can find a whole collection of options to meet a range of budgets and needs.
