Motorhome Hire Holidays Seem To Be Resisting The Credit Crunch

Share Article

Despite the gravity of The Credit Crunch in the UK and the rest of the world, Motorhome hire holidays seem to be as popular as ever. It seems that people not trusting European currency and choosing to try something new.

Susan Lomas, a writer for explains, "With the poor exchange rate of the pound sterling against the euro, British residents will get much less for their money in Europe unless the present situation improves. At the time of this press release, (March 11th 2009), we are seeing "parity" between the pound sterling and the euro for the first time ever.

As a result many United Kingdom residents will consider not going abroad for their 2009 holiday unless the situation improves.

Andrew Hughes of Motorholme in Cambridge has been quoted as saying that his web site traffic is significantly greater for people choosing to choose motorhome hire rather than a typical European package holiday. Andrew also says that his new 'buy to let motorhome' scheme is working really well. In the 'buy to let motorhome' scheme owners enter their motorhomes into a self hire agreement with Motorholme meaning that they get an income from other people renting their motorhomes.

Susan Lomas also points out another very valid point, "the smart money is on a motorhome holiday for 2009. If the exchange rate does not improve before the summer then a motorhome holiday in the United Kingdom makes good financial sense.

If the exchange rate should improve in the pound sterling's favour then you could still take your already hired motorhome to Europe and make the most of getting more euros for your money. Countries such as Spain and also the former Eastern block countries such as Croatia have great cheap campsites and meals out are inexpensive.

Also fuel prices are influencing people's holiday decisions. The economic and political circumstances surrounding America and the Middle East have meant that fuel prices stabilized during the autumn of 2008. Petrol and diesel are less expensive than they were a few months ago, a situation which looks likely to last well into into 2009 and a factor that is very important if you are considering a touring holiday.

So why not go Google 'motorhome hire' and have a different kind of holiday this year.
