If you’re looking to book a static caravan for a weekend or longer then you need to do your homework before entering into any rental agreement. If this happens to be your first time booking a static caravan then you probably won’t know what you should be looking for in terms of getting the best type of static caravan for your budget. After renting out various different static caravans from different caravan sites you’ll begin to get a more clear idea of what you want from this type of holiday and what you don’t.
Firstly before looking to book your static caravan you must determine what the budget will be for the holiday. By deciding on a budget you will know what you can afford in terms of accommodation and what will be left over for self catering and entertainment. The bulk of the budget will be for the static caravan you hire and will determine the size and facilities you can expect. Also factor into this the location as it will play its part, with more popular locations around the United Kingdom commanding a premium rental price. With all those budgetary issues, take care when you’re deciding to take your holiday, as the usual busy holiday times will incur higher rates at peak.
Assess the locations you narrow down to and check what the static caravans offer in terms of bedroom size, kitchen space and living accommodation size also. If you have a large family you’ll probably want to avoid anything too small. It’s your holiday so the last thing you need to be is cramped up with everyone struggling for their own space. With the British weather to contend with also, you might have to spend a considerable amount of time indoors. So make sure the static caravan you choose has adequate space for your brood.
Take advantage of the internet to browse reviews of the caravan park, check what people may not have enjoyed and decide whether those issues would be a problem for you. View the caravan site and you’ll be able to gather a fair idea of the scenic qualities the site has to offer. Check for distances between the actual site you’ll be staying on and where it relates to the attractions you want to go to. You don’t want to go into a booking blind and then realize that you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere.
Speak with the static caravan owner to finalize your booking, look at their list of what is included in the price and what isn’t. Check for any hidden charges that may not be obvious, such as phone use charges. Ask them to indicate whether they have insurance and make sure that the caravan is compliant in regards to safety certificates on electrical appliances and for gas appliances also. Make sure you have the correct booking times if you decide to go ahead with renting. Don’t assume you can turn up on the day at whatever time you want, always ensure the date and time are both agreed upon.
