Why a Campervan Holiday is great value for money


Wondering how you can take a holiday that's fun, affordable, healthy, and that's great value for money? Oh, and that the kids and the dog will love too? A luxury campervan holiday wins hands down, and here's why.

Luxury campervan holiday is what it's all about

We've been taking campervan holidays for years. And we've loved them so much that we set up Davanco Leisure luxury VW campervan hire with the aim of passing on our passion for good value, fun, on-the-road, camper holidays to as many people as we can.

We think campervan holidays are great value for money because:

Campervans are a home from home

Everything you need is with you in the campervan. Our high-spec modern-day luxury VW campers are kitted out and equipped with all home comforts including fridge, 2-ring gas burner, kettle, crockery, cutlery. As well as heating for those chillier times of year.

Just bring yourselves, towels, bedding, a few clothes for outdoor adventures, and food. No need to pack bulky suitcases. Stock up on affordable local goodies on the way, and enjoy endless cups of freshly brewed tea and coffee on tap, often accompanied by a fantastic view.

Being outdoors means spending less money

Campervan holidays and the healthy outdoors go hand-in-hand. And being outdoors means spending less money.

Hop from destination to destination, camp overnight, and explore the local area on foot. Or linger for a while at a chosen campsite. Enjoy sunny days on the beach, secluded isolation in idyllic rural spots, or getting close to nature at farm campsites.

The Peak District is on our doorstep. Collect your campervan and set off into the glorious Peaks and spend days walking heather-clad landscapes and lush limestone valleys. Or venture into Yorkshire and explore some of the most beautiful coastlines in the country.

The UK's landscape is vast and diverse, it's your choice where you go on your break.

Book a campervan hire out of season

Take a campervan break in the autumn and winter months and avoid busy roads, busy campsites, peak season holiday prices, and packed tourist locations. Many campsites stay open all year round and offer low season rates.

There's out-of-season beauty, majesty, and wildness around every corner. With the freedom to park up at the most remote locations, particularly in Scotland, you'll feel like it's just you, the campervan, and endless spectacular landscapes to keep you company.

Stay cosy at nights with our onboard fully-integrated hot air blown heating, and toast your toes by a glowing crackling campfire, many UK campsites allow them.

Campsites are affordable

There are so many excellent and diverse campsites up and down the UK that welcome campervans and offer top quality facilities. From seaside campsites and campsites hidden in the depths of woods, to campsites in the mountains and campsites open 365 days a year, the choice is yours.

Current overnight pitch fees for campervans vary from campsite to campsite and are also dependent on the time of year. Some small farm campsites may only ask for a few pounds per night, and you will rarely have to pay over £25 a night in high season.

Beat the weather

We all know about the fickleness of the UK weather. And, well, it does tend to be our favourite topic of conversation!

Many of us yearn for the guaranteed sunnier climes of foreign shores. And yet, with a luxury campervan hire UK break, there's no need to spend hundreds in search of overseas sun.

The 'get up and go' nature of a UK campervan adventure, means you're in charge of avoiding those dreaded downpours, plus, it's a great load of fun to 'beat the weather'.

If it's raining in the Peaks then head for the Lake District. If the Lakes are blustery too, then head inland for the gentler and more protected Home Counties. Get the idea?

Enjoy campervan cooking

Campervan cooking is healthy, very affordable, and is a real 'taste' of the outdoors. The 2 ring gas burners in our luxury campervans are more than enough to cook-up some delicious camper feasts. Just think breakfast frittata with bacon, cowboy chilli, and one pot egg fried rice. Got your tastebuds going?

Stock up on the basics, then pick up 'fresh' on the road delicious local produce. Roadside stalls are brilliant for local ingredients and they will almost certainly be home grown.

If it's warm outside, cook over a campfire. Food will never taste better. Buy some handcrafted sausages from a local butcher, add a few griddled veg and some couscous and, hey presto, an outdoor sensation in minutes.

Yes, the dog can come too

The price of many holidays goes up when kennel fees are involved. A luxury campervan UK break means that the dog comes along too and has just as much family fun.

After all, dogs are definitely at their happiest when outdoors and when they're with their families. And don't they deserve holidays too?

Our campervans are all set up for your furry friends. All we ask is that they're never left unattended, that they are kept safe during travel, that a soft bed is brought along for them. We charge a small fee to cover additional cleaning.
