Motorhome insurance providers will be delighted with figures showing that holidays in mobile homes in the UK are becoming more popular. Motorhomes are a great way to go on holiday because not only do they offer the freedom of camping with the home comforts of a caravan, they are also very easy to drive, and it seems more people are becoming wise to the fact.
Research has shown that there has been a 37% increase in the number of people who will be hiring a motorhome this summer, with almost half of these intending to buy their own mobile home in the next 12 months if they fall in love with life on the open road. Statistics show that over the last 10 years, those who hired before becoming a motorhome owner are now taking on average 22 more days holiday each year, with 67% confident enough to have added European cover to their motorhome insurance policy and driven outside the United Kingdom. Reasons given for choosing a motorhome after first hiring one include flexibility, convenience, comfort, family appeal, affordability, and the lure of the outdoors.
Motorhomes are not cheap to buy and this is why motorhome hire works so well as it offers all the benefits of owning one. It’s true that motorhome hire is still more expensive when compared to car and van hire, but it does offer a cost effective and hassle free holiday in the United Kingdom or Europe. In addition, renting a motorhome allows potential buyers to try out different types of motorhome to see which suits them best. Hiring a motorhome can be intimidating for anyone who has never driven one before and many drivers worry that they will have problems working out how to use everything. However, the reality is that this will not be a problem. Any reputable motorhome hire company will give customers comprehensive instructions before they drive off and even an average driver will be surprised at how easy it is. All that is really needed is a little extra care. Motorhomes provide a great lifestyle and are popular with people all over the world and whatever holiday is planned, there will be a motorhome that fits the bill.
