Planning a UK holiday this year? Use our guides and tips to help your holiday go without a hitch

Why choose a staycation?

Foreign travel is still an uncertain prospect this year. So you might be setting your sights closer to home for your holiday, especially with the costs associated with pre-travel tests, quarantine and constant changes of countries being added to the red list.

If you’re planning a road-trip or staycation, check out our guides and top tips – from a mini-break in your second home to a motorhome holiday at a campsite, we’re here to help with your long-awaited trip.

UK holiday travel

Many of us haven’t been on the road much during lockdown. So if you’re dusting off your car keys, make sure your vehicle’s road ready. It might be worth considering breakdown cover too.

If you’re travelling by motorhome or caravan make sure you have valid insurance. Unlike motorhomes, caravans don’t need an MOT, but it’s a good idea to check it over to make sure it’s roadworthy, particularly the tires and hitch. Find out more in our caravan guide.

Are you planning to convert your van ready for a UK holiday? Make sure you have the right insurance for a modified van. While all alterations should be declared to avoid a claim rejection, some more significant modifications might need specialist insurance, so make sure you check with your insurer.

If you’re planning overnight stays in your van, you won’t be covered by standard van insurance – instead you’ll probably need campervan, motorhome or other specialist cover.
