Caravan and Motorhome Club members predicted to increase contribution to local economies in 2023

The Caravan and Motorhome Club, the UK’s number one rated touring club, continues to make a positive impact on local economies, predicting that the £420 million contributed annually by members will continue to grow in 2023.

Despite the continuing cost of living crisis, Caravan and Motorhome Club members are still intending to make the most of their holidays and spend in local economies in 2023.  Over 80 percent of respondents of a recent survey* said they intend to eat and drink out whilst on their UK touring holiday this year and over 90 percent said they will buy food shopping locally.  A further 60 percent said they would be purchasing take-aways and food from local restaurants whilst on their holiday.

The Club has more members and more offers than any other UK touring club and encourages them to make the most of the great outdoors,  it also offers more choice with more UK and overseas campsites than any other UK touring Club.

According to the recent Centre of Economics and Business Research (Cebr) report commissioned by the Caravan and Motorhome Club, owners of leisure vehicles feel more in control of the cost of their holiday and whilst they are saving on accommodation, they are likely to spend money on shopping, eating out, visitor attractions, etc.

Owners of leisure vehicles also tend to stay away for slightly longer, increasing local spending.  The Cebr report shows that motorhome owners’ average holiday length is nearly a whole day extra at 8.5 nights.

Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing and Membership Services said: “Our members love to make the most of the great outdoors while travelling and exploring new destinations.  Our extensive network of campsites across the UK, combined with the spending power of our members, makes a significant impact on the rural economy, helping to support local businesses and communities.”

In addition to the economic benefits, the Caravan and Motorhome Club offers its members a range of benefits, including savings of £15 per night on average, no additional costs for children under five years old, dogs go free and awnings are free when staying on Club campsites. Members also have a choice of more European campsites, more training courses and venues and more access to small 5-pitch campsites than any other UK touring club.

In 2023 the Club will also extend its offers and savings for members meaning more deals on great days out and activities. Members and non-members can also book with a low deposit from only £25, with free cancellations or amendments up to 21 days before arrival.  The Club will also be adding evenmore locations to its glamping offering – called Experience Freedom – across nine different campsites, making it the perfect choice for those looking for a memorable and affordable holiday experience, while supporting the local economy.

Alexander continues: “We are proud to have the largest membership base of any UK touring club and to be trusted by generations for our advice. By providing members with access to 2,700 quality campsites in the UK and overseas and helping them getaway for less with a growing range of great offers, Caravan and Motorhome Club members will continue to travel frequently and make the most of their holidays whilst supporting the rural economy.”
