Motorhome holidays before the summer school holidays

Why take a motorhome holiday before the summer?

The advantages of taking a motorhome holiday before the summer school holidays begin are obvious, reasons include:

  • Cheaper motorhome hire prices (get a quote here)
  • Cheaper campsite fees
  • Less traffic on the roads
  • Less busy at popular destinations

Indeed those who prefer a very quiet, relaxed holiday may just prefer to not have tons of children on holiday at the same time as them. There are also some seasonal advantages too, if you are planning on going abroad, you might prefer this time of the year before it gets too hot. Certain sports work better out of season too; for example kayaking is at it’s best now in The French Alps and The Ardèche.  Right now is an ideal time for individuals, couples and groups of friends to get away.

So when exactly?

If you are planning to holiday or tour around the UK then all you need to know is when the school summer holiday dates are, but be aware that Scotland is different to England. However if you are going abroad you might need to look at the school holiday dates of the countries you are visiting:
