Spontaneous holidays in a Free Spirit campervan

With spring rolling in and school holidays on the horizon, you aren’t alone in dreaming of a quick last-minute holiday. As the days grow longer and warmer, you can be sure that every other globetrotter has the same idea.

But get this: travel on a budget doesn’t have to mean crowded airports, cheap flights and cramped seats. A campervan is a great alternative to air travel, putting the freedom to shape your travel adventures at your fingertips. Let’s look at just a few ways in which a campervan holiday is better than a flight abroad.

Skipping the airport experience

It’s no secret that the airport isn’t exactly the most exciting part of going on holiday. Waking up at 3am and bundling a very tired partner or some very NOT tired children into a taxi, only to spend the next three hours being told your carry-on luggage is just that little bit too wide, getting pat down for way too long, and having to buy an £8 egg-and-cress sandwich because the security made you throw your homemade ones away. And then, when you’re finally seated on the plane, you have to wait an hour for the weather to clear up.

With a campervan holiday, you get none of this. Leave when you want, on your terms. Bring as much (or as little!) luggage as you want. Travel in any weather, rain or shine. And most importantly – no £8 sandwiches!

And the best part is, if all of Britain is still too domestic for you, Europe is just a ferry ride away. Whether you’re going for a domestic family holiday or a long-haul solo venture to Eastern Europe, the flexibility of a campervan holiday ensures you’re ready for anything life throws at you.

The environmental benefits

In this enlightened age, more and more people are prioritising sustainable choices in their day-to-day lives. This is particularly important for holidays, as air travel is commonly known as one of the leading causes of CO2 emissions. At Free Spirit Campervans, we appreciate the importance of protecting our environment; after all, there would be nowhere to holiday otherwise!

For the more eco-conscious reader, it will come as no surprise that a campervan holiday is one of the most eco-friendly ways to holiday, short of taking an electric scooter round the country. On a campervan holiday, you can be assured with the extra knowledge that not only are you having a great time on your spontaneous holiday, you’re also doing your bit to save the environment.

Embrace green travel

Discovering hidden gems on the road

Perhaps the biggest downside to package holidays is the railroading you’re liable to experience, particularly with all-inclusive options. Once you touch down, it can be all to easy to fall into the typical holidaymaker routine, crossing ground that thousands before you will have already tread.

With a campervan holiday, you’re forced to be more considerate of your surroundings and take in the little things. You’ll no longer see places as stepping stones to your next item on the itinerary but as destinations in their own right. With the freedom to go anywhere at any time, you’ll find yourself opening up to the spontaneity of travel. Finding unique attractions off the beaten path is sure to make your holiday unforgettable.

A holiday that doesn’t break the bank

Whether you’re craving a city break or a beach holiday, a campervan has you covered for any eventuality. With costs of living rising, a it’s an affordable way to go on holiday and the great deal will only get better over the years the more you use it.

And if you’re staying in Britain, it can be a great way to get a change of scenery without having to fuss about exchange rates or travel insurance. Just hop in the driver’s seat and see where the wind takes you!

On the other hand, if you’re wanting a more exotic holiday destination, you can say goodbye to spending weeks checking the same three websites for last-minute deals and trying to find cheap hotels – all the hotel you need is in your back seat.
