Camping heats up this summer according to statistics

By Felicity at Campingninja, 28 June 2011
The camping season is well and truly heating up as the weather in the UK continues to amaze and there is a plethora of bank holidays to make the most of. Campingninja,  have experienced a dramatic 200% increase in website traffic and campsite bookings in the last four weeks alone.

With the average time of just three weeks between booking and going on a camping holiday, these statistics are a sure sign that campsites are going to be popular places over the next couple of months.

Rhian Evans, co-director of Campingninja comments: “Camping has certainly become increasingly popular over the past couple of years and is often something that is arranged rather last minute compared to other types of holiday. In the UK the weather can be unpredictable so people wait to see what it will be like, booking much closer to the time in which they want to go away.

“Recent bookings made through Campingninja demonstrate this with 39% of bookings being made within one week of travel, 57% of bookings being made within two weeks of travel and 66% of bookings being made within three weeks of travel” continues Rhian.

With last minute bookings proving so popular, it is imperative that campers can search, check availability and book a holiday to suite their requirements quickly and easily. With an enormous surge in camping numbers it is without doubt that it is becoming increasingly difficult and frustrating to find and book the right pitch using traditional methods of phoning around or emailing and waiting for responses. 

Try checking availability online and book the perfect escape to avoid disapointment.
