Businesses in London and in all areas where the Olympic Games take place are forecasted to have a bumper summer this year as visitors flood into the country, and it seems that motorhome rental firms and motorhome insurance providers will be amongst those to benefit.
With just weeks to go before the lighting of the Olympic torch signals the start of the games, motorhome rental companies are reporting record levels of enquiries. It seems that foreign visitors especially are looking to tour the UK while they take in the games and of course the different geographic venues mean a campervan or motorhome is ideal for those for instance, who want to see the athletics in London, the sailing in Weymouth and the football in Coventry. One online company, RV Rental Campervan say they have never experienced anything like it and report enquiries from locations as diverse as China, Malaysia, New Zealand and the USA.
A spokesman for the firm said that the level of enquiries was at such a level that they are considering purchasing more motorhomes and campervans to cope with the demand. Already they confirm they have contacted regular summer customers telling them they need to book their holidays quickly if they want a vehicle in July and August. In fact the upturn in business will come as no surprise to many motorhome insurance providers who have been providing motorhome rental companies with increasing levels of cover over the last few years. It seems that many UK residents are using campervan and motorhomes to make their staycation that little bit different and have just a little more fun.
Renting a vehicle for a holiday it seems is also encouraging more people to go out and actually buy a mobile home. Statistics from all the leading manufacturers who sell their products in the UK are buoyant, and considering mobile homes must be considered a luxury vehicle the world wide slump is not proving to be as damaging as it could have been.
