Caravan holidays and camping trips are set to rise this year as Britons remain in the UK for their holidays post-coronavirus.

Motorhome and caravan dealerships across the country are preparing for reopening on Monday, after a surge in interest online in caravans and motorhomes.

British leisure vehicle manufacturer, Swift Group, recently revealed its web traffic increased over 40 percent since Boris Johnson announced the initial lockdown easing on May 10, compared to the two weeks prior.

Interestingly, growth has been driven by a younger audience between 18 to 44 years old, whose visits to the site are up by nearly 50 percent.
