Planning a UK Roadtrip
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic holidaying as we are used to, has changed. In a poll by RVezy of 2000, 80% of people who voted said they would be wary about flying in the near future and are looking towards taking a break in their own country.
Here in the UK we are lucky to have so many places that offer such a varied type of holiday. Visiting the lake district you can get back to nature and feel peaceful, or a holiday near a sea side means Fish and Chips and dipping your toes in the sea. Or you wish to visit somewhere more historic and learn something about the British history.
When planning a road trip, it is a good idea to look to online resources, finding a community of other motorhome owners would be a good place to start. There are various groups on Facebook, you can search in groups for motorhome and find one which matches your interests.You will be able to ask questions, read questions that other people have posted and pick up tips.
