Owning a campervan is a dream come true for many – but what are some of the best advantages of a campervan? You might be surprised at some of the great reasons to take the leap and make an investment!
See more of the world
While going to other countries is exciting, there is so much to see and do in the UK – and a campervan makes that very accessible. You will see more from driving and taking the scenic route than you might expect! But campervans aren’t just for exploring the UK. They can also be a unique way to see Europe. It can be very affordable to take a ferry and drive to many of Europe’s best campsites, letting you see more than you would if you just flew to a single destination.
It is no secret that travel is costly. Whether you travel alone or with a group of friends or family, paying for travel, accommodation, eating out, hiring a car and more can mean you end up spending more than you mean to. While a campervan might seem like a single large expense (though this is less if you choose to hire rather than buy), you will save money in the long run and enjoy the convenience of being able to see the UK with easy and spontaneous travel.
Enjoy familiar space
Staying in hotels and self-catering accommodation can be a wonderful experience, but it can also be a little hit-and-miss. If you miss your very own creature comforts and want a reliable, familiar, and bespoke place to rest while you’re on a trip, then a campervan can give you the benefits of home without needing to stay in a single spot. It really is the best of both worlds!
Spend more time with family
It can be easy to get swept up in the rush of everyday life and not spend enough time with our loved ones. Not even holidays are always the point of connection we want them to be, with the stress of the airport or long train journeys. One of the advantages of a campervan is that it gives you a reliable way to get away with your family when you want, without the extra stress of other forms of travel, and encourages you to really talk, plan activities, and just enjoy the company of your family and friends.
Get outdoors more
We have all heard about the dangers of spending too much time in cities or staring at screens. A campervan makes it easier to get out in nature and enjoy the natural world. Best of all, you can do this without needing to pitch a tent!
A flexible vehicle option
Owning a campervan, in particular, a VW Transporter, doesn’t necessarily mean only using it for holidays. One of the many advantages of a campervan is that our VW campervans are multi-purpose and are a popular option for many people (especially for our customers!) as they can be used on a daily basis as well as for leisure purposes. This saves the expense of having a vehicle purely for leisure use. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how many ways you can use your campervan – from running small errands to helping with moves!
Potential for resale
Another one of the advantages of a campervan is that, unlike a car, campervans in good condition can often hold their value extremely well, especially the VW Transporter. These campervans retain their value more than any other vehicle on the market. The depreciation of a VW campervan is nothing compared to a car, so it’s a worthwhile investment in future holidays that actually pays back if and when you decide to sell it.
Join a thriving community
One of the most incredible advantages of a campervan is that you will become part of a thriving community of campervan enthusiasts. You can meet up with fellow lovers of campervan travel at different sites, attend arranged events, or just connect online to share tips and tricks about how to best enjoy your new lifestyle.
