The future of the travel industry is changing. We have been following the motorhome industry closely and there is a lot of chatter around the world about how RVs, Motorhomes and Campervans are the future of travel.
The current situation has put a lot of focus on safety and freedom. Numerous studies and industry experts including Tourism Australia have said that self drive holidays will be the first to recover and exceed demand. Demand for self drive domestic holidays will increase exponentially including travellers desire to help local communities.
People around the world are rethinking holidays and the way they travel. Air travel, cruise ships, and packed accommodations are ruled out due to safety concerns. Instead, interest is being reignited in domestic tourism. Australia has so much to offer its residents, and travellers are using 2020 as an excuse to explore their backyard.
One of the best ways to take on domestic travel is through campervan holidays. Self-drive holidays offer both safety from crowds and the freedom to travel.
Reports indicate that there has been a significant spike in interest in campervan (RV) travel and self drive holidays are tipped to be the future of travel. It’s no surprise, as campervans are a great option for safe travelling while maintaining social distancing practices. Tourism Australia and all state tourism bodies believe that domestic tourism will recover first and that campervan travel will be the leading choice in domestic travel. Domestic travel will be the new norm as there is a rising trend of people wanting to see more of Australia and to support local communities.
We’re witnessing the rebirth of the campervan industry and we speculate it’s here to stay. Once someone has travelled in a campervan they’re converted for life. That’s because campervan travel gives individuals the control they usually don’t have during regular holidays. You’re not locked into hotel reservations and plane departure times. You get to control where you go, when you go, and how long you stay. If you change your mind, it’s as simple as a different turn on the road.
It’s also a uniquely peaceful holiday. You’ll find time to connect with the wilderness, sleep under the stars, and spend quiet time with friends or reading a book. A campervan holiday maintains a good balance of thrill and a laid back holiday. It’s the ultimate choose-your-adventure holiday.
