Press Release: April 29, 2020
Even if travel seems to be a distant reality at the moment, Indie Campers encourages people to keep dreaming, reconnect with nature and when the lockdown eventually is lifted - explore the UK by discovering new places and local wonders.
There’s an old saying that goes: ‘don’t leave home until you’ve seen the country’, which is applicable for the coming months as domestic travel could arguably become the new standard. Currently, the impact of this pandemic is felt in every corner of the travel industry. While last year Brits took a total of 72.6 million trips abroad (Finder 2020), there seems to be no certainty about how travel plans are going to unfold in the next couple of months.
“Perhaps this situation provides some time to rethink travel and focus on local recreation instead of long-distance, and in ways that are more aligned with social distancing. We encourage travellers to refocus on local travel and explore all the wonders we have domestically in the UK,”
- Hugo Oliviera, CEO at Indie Campers.
As lockdown regulations are gradually lifted, campervan rental company Indie Campers is encouraging aspiring travellers to spend time planning for future local getaways and rediscovering the many wonders within their own country. Travelling in a motorhome provides the flexibility to be independent, plan your own waypoints, and spend the night anywhere, waking up surrounded by nature. It makes this mode of travelling a truly adventurous holiday. Moreover, travelling by campervan limits contact with people and reduces any risk of infections. Taking a road trip in a mobile home gives you an opportunity to reconnect with nature, and experience the outdoors this summer without any apprehension.
On this note, the Campervan rental company has created an infographic with some tips and benefits of campervan travel after the lockdown such as:
The British people have always been explorers and, after spending so much time at home, might be more adventurous than ever. Live the adventure while being considerate: grab your partner, your family or your roommates and head out on mini trips in a campervan. To accommodate this, Indie Campers have taken extra measures in prioritising everyone’s health and safety, including deep cleaning of all vans, providing online check-in and support together with online tutorials of their vehicles to minimize human interactions during the rental process.
