Isle of Wight caravanning holiday 'is attractive'

An Isle of Wight caravanning holiday could be an "attractive" option for both families and the older generation, one expert has advised.

Alicia Dunne, deputy director general of the National Caravan Council, explained that in difficult economic times taking a caravan to a UK destination such as the Isle of Wight could be the perfect way for people to escape the issues associated with overseas travel.

She said: "Air travel has suffered from a raft of problems ranging from increased costs to the sheer inconvenience coupled with strikes, cancellations and diversions. Costs of holidaying in Europe have risen."

Ms Dunne added that with short breaks in the UK becoming an increasingly "attractive" option, she expects the "staycation" trend to continue to be popular this summer.

Similarly, Jon Dale, publicity manager for the Camping and Caravanning Club, has advised the club's site bookings have increased by approximately 20 per cent on the same time last year.
