camperWhen the winter is starting to give way to spring and the first daffodils start to shoot out of the cold earth our thoughts turn to the summer and the warmer months of the year. And one of the best parts of summer is the yearly summer holiday which so many Brits love and long for. But summer holidays are constantly changing and the cheap package deal to Spain or Italy which were once the norm are no longer on the agenda for many families across the UK.
The internet has changed the way we travel forever, no longer do we have to walk to our high street travel agent and book a holiday with them, it’s easy to do it independently online. And because of this the variety of different holiday types has literally exploded.
Some of the now-popular holiday types include:
Walking holidays
As a nation we’ve moved away from a sedentary holiday to a more active break away. And now many tens of thousands of holidaymakers across the British Isles opt for a walking break as their main summer holiday. Walking holidays can be had in the UK or Europe with many companies catering to this particular trend. Some holidays can be booked with a guide and a specific itinerary whilst some people prefer to book their flights and accommodation independently and plan their route themselves.
Adventure holidays
It’s now possible to book flights to some of the less-well-trodden parts of the world and because of this, adventure holiday specialists have capitalised on the trend to do and see something different. Whether it’s a safari in southern Africa or a cruise around the Galapagos Islands this type of holiday is definitely on trend.
The staycation
Because the majority of us now have hectic lifestyles which revolve around work, a staycation is becoming more and more popular. And what’s the point spending thousands on a holiday if you’ve yet to see what’s within driving distance of your own home. If a staycation is planned properly and you are strict in terms of the agenda you’ve set you can have a fantastic break and still sleep in your own bed.
Campervan hire
One of the problems with any holiday is that you’ll likely only see the immediate area where you’re staying and will not get a feel for the wider surroundings. This is why perhaps campervan hire has seen a renaissance over recent years. Campervan hire is the perfect way to travel between different locations and take in the beautiful scenery of the remote Highlands or the urban sprawl of a city or town.

Arthur Blake is a keen caravaner and really does recommend this kind of holiday, his favourite company to hire from is and they offer everything you could ever need.
