LLike many other UK travel companies, Cool Camping, which offers camping and glamping holidays at more than 500 sites, reported an increase in bookings yesterday.
The company reported that bookings increased more than 750% on the same date last year. He said overall website traffic also increased by more than 200 percent, with a rise starting at 4 p.m., just after the roadmap was announced.
Jonathan Knight, founder of Cool Camping, said:
“It is great news that now hosting companies have dates to work and can start planning in advance. The main interest has been in the southwest locations, with people booking for the two May holidays, especially the latest which also falls in the week of the semester. ”
However, he raised concerns that camping holidays that include shared facilities will be excluded from step 2 on April 12, when it will be allowed to open other self-catering accommodation, along with many outdoor attractions.
“If that’s the case, it seems like total madness to restrict camping as a small number of campers share the same facilities, while visitor attractions, such as parks and gardens, will open with thousands of visitors sharing the campsites. same facilities “.
