Caravan parks in the UK are likely to rise in popularity following Britain’s decision to leave the European Union (EU), according to the team behind an expanding UK holiday park.
The comments come from former Liberal Democrat constituency communications officer, Neil Darby, who recently took on a lead marketing role at a long-established caravan park in the North West.
Mr Darby believes that Brexit uncertainty and the recent fall in the value of sterling are “good news” for the UK caravan and holiday park sector – so much so that the Referendum result has inspired him to take on a radical career change.
The former Lib Dem campaigner, who once worked alongside MP Gordon Birtwistle, will now head the marketing team of Moss Wood Caravan Park in Lancaster, which is currently expanding its site to make way for new luxury accommodation.
“Despite the many uncertainties following the recent Referendum, domestic tourism stands out as the one area almost certain to receive a business boost,” he said.
“The weaker pound against the euro and the threat of higher air fares are making overseas holidays look much less attractive than previously.”
