Make sure you book your camping trip early to avoid disappointment

Camping holidays are not for all families but if you want to get away for a cheap week then this is certainly the way to go. It may be that you are used to camping or that it is your first time. If it is your first time then you will quickly realise that often you learn as you go along and next time will feel more prepared.

Camping may not be the easiest type of holiday, but if you are well equipped then it can be lots of fun and a great way to make memories – kids tend to love it!

Camping pitches can often fill up pretty quickly especially in popular tourist areas so it is important to book in advance if to ensure you have a good selection of sites and dates. If you leave it till last minute you may find that you are left with some of the less favoured sites, which may be ok if you are looking for a basic pitch but not so much if you want a few more home comforts and luxuries.

There are some great websites that allow you to search areas for your selected dates and they will show you a list of campsites available. Often you can book just by paying a small deposit and paying the remainder when you are there.
