Haven Experience 22% Increase in New UK Touring Customers Following GBP 100 Million Investment

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - There's never been a better time to enjoy the great outdoors. And camping and caravanning has to be the most fun and the best value way to discover Britain's beautiful beaches, brightest resorts, glorious countryside and well renowned heritage.

This year Haven Holidays have seen a massive 22% increase in brand new UK touring customers booking a break compared to the same time last year. And it's not just new customers. The number of families returning to Haven parks has seen an increase of 15% compared to 2010 as last year's first-time tourers are coming back for more.

Over the last two years Haven have invested in the region of GBP 100million on their 35 family holiday parks – of which 23 parks offer facilities for touring caravans.

They say, 'Winter investment has included improvements to our swimming pools – including slides and lazy rivers at several park; enhancements to entertainment complexes and venues, landscaping and new holiday homes. We have also added brand new heated shower blocks to improve our touring facilities at Marton Mere, near Blackpool and at Craig Tara on the Ayrshire coast. The new facilities include baby changing areas and separate showers and WC's for disabled guests – as well as spacious family rooms with shower and sink.'

Touring is undoubtedly excellent value for money. Holidaymakers can book a pitch during the Easter school holidays from as little as £8 per pitch per night – and that's for a family of up to eight people. The price includes access to all of Haven's facilities, including the swimming pools, entertainment and kids clubs.

Touring pitches range from a basic pitch right through to a Euro pitch with a 'multi-connection' turret with electricity, water and waste-disposal.

If you want to experience a camping holiday but don't have your own tent – Haven also offer the option of yurts at Perran Sands, fully fitted with contemporary style furniture and little mini-pods to sleep in. New for this year are Safari Tents, available at Perran Sands and also at Burnham on Sea. The new tents capture the spirit of the African savannah with a wide, shaded veranda, comfortable furniture and barbecues.
