Thinking of getting away this summer in your touring caravan? Whilst travelling abroad might still seem like the best idea when it comes to going on holiday, there is no reason why you can’t enjoy a trip that’s a little closer to home.
The UK is packed with plenty of beautiful destinations that could easily be mistaken for being located somewhere more exotic. If you are looking to visit more than one destination this summer with no limitations, why not head on an exciting road trip with the family?

Here are our top tips for making the most of your touring experience this summer…
Plan your itinerary in advance
Organisation is key when it comes to executing an amazing touring holiday. After all, the last thing you want is to make it halfway through your road trip and realise you’ve run out of time to do all the things you wanted to do.
To avoid disappointment, we suggest planning your itinerary ahead of time and making a note of all the places you want to visit. Where necessary, book tickets and make reservations in advance to avoid long queues and waiting times.
Prepare your vehicle
For a trip like this, your vehicle is going to be hitting the roads for an extended period of time. Therefore, it’s important to ensure it is up to the challenge and all the advised vehicle checks have been carried out before you start any long journeys.
Ensure all tyres are in healthy condition and all lights and signalling components work efficiently. You may also want to check your vehicle fluid levels and make sure any safety equipment is working properly.
Have a budget in mind
When you’re on holiday, the cost of everything soon racks up. To try and get your spending under control, it’s advisable to decide on a budget before you set off to avoid a disappointing bank balance at the end of your trip.
Things to consider are travel costs, accommodation, food and drink, as well as activities.
A touring holiday means you will be travelling to multiple destinations in one trip. Therefore, you will mostly be living out of your suitcase, rather than unpacking and settling in one place.
To avoid underpacking or overpacking, clothes getting creased, or items getting lost; plan your outfits ahead of time. Packing cubes for suitcases are a fantastic way to keep specific items together for certain days of the week.
So, who says you need to jet off abroad to enjoy a spot of culture and sightseeing? There are so many awe-inspiring places in the North East just waiting to be discovered.
