Home away from home — check out the caravan show
By Declan Varley
‘Check in two hours prior to your flight’, ‘no more than 15kg of luggage allowed’, ‘ensure some necessary hand luggage items in case of lost baggage’, ‘your hotel to airport transfer takes one hour please do not be late for pick up’ - just a few of the problems that can arise with package holidays. The Caravan & Motorhome Show which will be held at the RDS Simmonscourt from Friday January 27 to Sunday January 29 offers holiday makers an alternative to the pressures of the package.
Caravanning is now a popular holiday choice for couples and families and groups as they are fun, affordable, and give you the freedom to discover new places. This year the demand for caravanning and touring holidays has risen dramatically as more people discover the great benefits, freedom, flexibility and adventure that they can bring.
A popular choice that does not break the bank, touring holidays are relaxing and much more economical than other holiday types, with lower accommodation, entertainment and food costs. There are hotels and self catering apartments offered as part of package deals that would struggle to meet the standards and amenities of a mid budget caravan or motorhome. The exhibitors at this year’s show have ensured that there is something on offer for all tastes and budgets.
Distributors are also seeing a remarkable increase in the demand for holiday homes, also referred to in the industry as ‘statics’ as people strive to holiday in their very own ‘home from home’. A vast choice of striking exteriors and stylish interiors, there is something on offer to suit all tastes and budgets. With high
quality furnishings, contemporary fabrics, stylish fittings and an array of practical features holiday homes are fast becoming a popular choice for holiday makers in Ireland.
The Caravan & Motorhome Show is Ireland’s number one indoor and outdoor display of luxurious motorhomes, caravan holiday homes, touring caravans, and accessories. All the major brands will be on display, and most exhibitors have special ‘show only’ discount deals available for visitors meaning unbeatable deals on thousands of models, accessories and gadgets.
The show will also highlight the availability of home comforts in many caravans and motorhomes such as flat screen TVs, microwaves, large fridges and power showers meaning holiday makers don’t have to sacrifice certain luxuries if they opt to tour instead of confining themselves to one location for the duration of their holiday.
While the event will have major equipment and accessory displays it will also have the experts on hand to advise visitors on any aspect of caravanning, camping and outdoor life. This includes home and overseas sites, parks, travel, insurance and financial services, weather and route planning, in fact all sorts of practical help.
So for a great day out visit Ireland’s favourite ‘Caravan & Motorhome Show’ at the 2012 Holiday World Show, with a great selection of caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes. It is your last chance to see all the latest models; grab some accessories at bargain prices; and enjoy a great day out to kick-start your 2012 season.
