Choosing to purchase a campervan on finance has certainly become an increasingly popular option for many UK holiday makers. Buying second hand or in cash can have their appeals but both have their obvious pitfalls; lack of upfront funds and unknowingly buying a campervan that is doomed to fall apart before you even reach your destination to highlight the immediate concerns. Financing your campervan however creates the opportunity to get the right campervan for you and if you choose to finance your campervan, we can help you find the most competitive rates, starting from 5.9% APR (7.9% APR Representative). You can compare finance options for your campervan here.
The average UK family will have two kids and both parents working full time and on average this family will take 1.6 holidays abroad a year. If you’re travelling to Europe on your yearly family holiday you’re going to be spending almost £4000 for a trip of 10 nights; most of that will be spent on travel and accommodation and keep in mind, those prices are only going to go up! That yearly family holiday starts looking well above £80,000 in a 20 year span (the average lifespan of a campervan). If you look at a campervan holiday by comparison; the average lifespan being 20 years and a typical campervan finance loan of £30,000 with a representative APR of 7.9% over, say, five years, why then relatively speaking you’re going to be paying it off in a quarter of the time at just a fraction of the cost!
So, if it makes sense to go with a campervan finance option is there another drawback – a consideration common amongst holiday destinations – namely, are you paying half the value for half the experience? Even if you don’t travel to Europe in your campervan and you choose to stay in the UK, the answer may surprise you. The simple fact is that the UK is in the top 10 countries to holiday in, at least for us Brits. Whether you’re going to Cornwall for those picturesque beaches and sprawling coastal views, visiting the Lake District for stunning walks and breath-taking scenery, or up to the Scottish Highlands for the mysterious Loch Ness and history-packed landscape – it is all very attainable through a campervan holiday. With, of course, the additional bonus of not being restricted to just the single location for the trip. If you want to see more of the place you’re visiting, you have complete freedom to do as you wish.
