Coronavirus leads to surge in sales for camping industry with 'staycations' the new trend for 2020
The news comes as numerous airlines issue profit warnings and cancel flights to popular holiday destinations which have been stricken by the virus. Camping has already been growing as a popular mainstream option for holiday accommodation throughout Europe and reports have shown that people in the continent already spend an average of 5 days a year camping.
Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: "Camping equipment sales have already been increasing as the UK recognises the benefits of looking after your physical and mental well being, and there's no doubt that the uncertainty of travel to foreign destinations has seen our sales surge even higher in the past 3 months. As airlines cancel flights to popular holiday destinations, we know that camping has become the safest alternative to getting away and isolating yourself without the risks of large crowds and the costs of cancelled plans."
