More Young People Take Up Camping Since COID19 Pandemic

Published on

New research commissioned by Go Outdoors has found there has been a huge interest in camping thanks to the COVID19 pandemic.

According to the report, those in their 20s and 30s have turned to camping holidays. Normally this age group would be taking a break in Benidorm and the Costa Del Sol, but due to the COVID19 restrictions, they are swapping the hot climates for Devon, Skegness, and Scarborough.

The COVID19 lockdown has resulted in young people exploring staycations and a way of having a cheap holiday which camping can provide. The most popular UK destinations for camping holidays for people in their 2s and 30s include the Lake District, Devon, and Cornwall.

Campsite owners are hoping this trend will continue. These types of holidays are much cheaper than going abroad but will young people once the lockdown restrictions are removed and the threat of COVID19 vanish stick with camping?

47% of those surveyed said they would try out a camping or caravanning holiday. However, the most common concerns people had with camping was the weather and sharing a tent with other people. Surprisingly enough only 8% said they would miss having a Wi-Fi connection while on a camping holiday.

Even though travel agents have complained about how the restrictions have resulted in fewer people travelling abroad, could COVID19 benefited the staycation industry.
