Just thinking of a holiday outside in the cool, fresh air of spring makes winter a little more bearable. Camping holidays are especially refreshing after a long winter spent indoors. Early holiday booking often leads to comprehensive trip planning, broader location choices, and better prices.
Detailed Trip Planning
Thinking about holiday options early ensures that nearly every detail of the trip is carefully considered. Trip routes, travel destinations, mode of travel, and essential camping items are all important things to think about well in advance. Although exact weather conditions cannot be forecasted so far in advance, one should consider typical seasonal weather patterns for route and destination choices. Early trip planning also allows one to consider the best travel destination that suits all members of the holiday party. The holiday journey is only half the fun; tourist attractions at the chosen destination complete the trip. Today’s campers have many transportation and lodging options. A group can combine tent camping and a cabin stay for a nice spring treat, or they may rent a caravan for transportation and lodging purposes. Travel groups and associations like the Caravan Club assist campers and caravanners with travel checklists and insurance information for trip planning purposes.
Broad Location Options
Travel clubs like Caravan also help its members choose and book prime camp site locations. The club was founded in the early 1900s and their database of locations and members are extensive. Great campsite locations are found all over the U.K. and continental Europe through club membership. The best sites at prime locations fill fast so early winter booking of a spring holiday is ideal.
There are over 200 specially selected, captivating sites located all over the British Isles.

There are also over 2,500 member-only certified locations situated on farms, beaches, or picturesque countrysides.
Over 200 club inspected and approved sites are in areas throughout Europe. France is home to over half of these sites and offers campers a variety of experiences that can rarely be found elsewhere. For instance, there is the cosmopolitan City of Lights Paris, traditional countrysides, and French Riviera beaches toward the country’s south. Caravan helps travellers with campsite and chunnel booking. Other continental campsite destinations that offer sun drenched locales during the spring are in Spain, Portugal, and Italy. Travellers who wish to catch some late skiing action during the early spring could take advantage of campsites in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. Additionally, cultural attractions are abundant at Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, and Luxembourg Caravan destinations.
Opportunity for Discounted Rates
Some campsites, cottage resorts, and vehicle rental agencies reward guests who book their holidays early with discounted rates or other incentives. This is especially true for holidays booked before the peak summer season. Some tourist attractions in holiday destination areas also offer discounted rates for those who purchase tickets early or during off-peak time periods.
