Get Ready for the Start of the Motorhome Season

FLINT, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) - Many people in the UK will already have decided not to spend their holidays abroad this year. The alternatives available in this country are many and varied. Perhaps a luxury hotel or possibly a less expensive bed and breakfast. You could try a holiday camp such as Pontins or Butlins where all the catering and leisure facilities are provided on site. But one of the fastest growing leisure activities in the country is taking advantage of the benefits provided by owning a motorhome.

There are many advantages to owning a motorhome. The opportunity to go where you want when you want , without the distraction of pre-booking flights, accommodation or train tickets. Once you have made the initial outlay in purchasing your motorhome the cost of holidays is minimal in comparison to other holiday options. If you are dissatisfied with the location you have chosen just get in the driver's seat and move on.

Many retired motorhome owners use their vehicles all year round, often to escape the winter cold in the UK and drive down to the south of France or Spanish costas to enjoy the continental winter sunshine. The saving made on fuel bills at home often going a long way to covering the cost of the holiday.

A spokesman for Staveley Head, one of the UK's leading motorhome insurance providers, said "This is the time of year when most motorhome owners take the dustcovers off their vehicles and start preparing them for the summer season. The use of motorhomes and caravans is largely seasonal and we find the volume of enquiries for road-risk insurance cover for motorhomes increases dramatically in March. Most people who intend to buy a motorhome do so in the Spring, in anticipation of the forthcoming better weather, so we also have many annual policy renewals to accommodate around this time as well as new purchases.

Motorhomes are road-going vehicles and are therefore subject to the safety standards and levels of road-worthiness imposed by the Department for Transport. But they also carry a great deal of internal domestic equipment such as fridges, cookers, heaters and other electrical and gas powered equipment which also require regular safety checks. Many manufacturers' warranties only remain valid if their equipment is annually serviced.

Staveley Head are based in Flintshire, North Wales. They have been in business for over 15 years and have built up a reputation for offering affordable, reliable insurance to motorhome owners.
