If you are fed up with the cost of an expensive family holiday abroad with bored and fretful children or you long to do your own thing away from crowds of fellow holidaymakers. Or maybe you don’t want the cost of travel and an expensive hotel, then why not consider a camping holiday?
There can be few things better than to wake in the morning to a bright new day, unzip your tent and smell the countryside. If you love beautiful countryside, if you long for tranquillity, if you love the idea of tugging on your old shorts and t-shirt and cooking and eating in the open air, then this could be the holiday for you.
There is a vast variety of tent-friendly campsites to choose from, depending on your budget and preferred style. They range from sites which are within walking distance of a beach or a site which is more orientated to entertainment for children. Of course, these days most sites boast heated showers, laundry facilities and wifi – in fact all the comforts of home! But, if that is too much like civilisation for you, why not choose a quieter site and sit back, relax. Maybe watch red kites flying overhead or catch a glimpse of a kingfisher along the riverbank in Wales?
So, you’ve decided to buy a nice new tent, you’ve got your camping equipment together and booked your campsite. But we can’t pretend that things don’t go wrong or that there will be blue skies all the way! You wouldn’t think of travelling abroad without holiday insurance which covers you and your personal belongings, so why would you go camping without insurance protection against anything going wrong on your camping holiday? It may not have crossed your mind but it’s a sad fact that your holiday could be spoilt by a mishap to your tent or contents. Your holiday memories may be memories all for the wrong reasons! Sadly, many people might not think of insurance until it’s far too late and their holiday is ruined. Camping insurance is great value for peace of mind and part of the enjoyment of your whole camping experience. Your camping insurance should include:-
- Loss of use cover. Loss or damage to your tent, camping equipment and
personal effects caused by accidental damage, flood, theft or malicious damage.
- Alternative accommodation if your tent becomes unusable following an incident.
- Public liability cover arising from the use or ownership of your tent.
- European use cover.
