May 31, 2016

Summer has finally arrived, and with the rise of the staycation, many Brits are staying put – choosing to holiday at hotspots throughout the UK. While jetting off overseas has its draws, Britain has an abundance of beautiful locations. Whether holidaymakers are looking to relax closer to home or head to an unexplored part of the country in search of the ultimate adrenaline rush, there’s no need to cross oceans on your quest for adventure.

If you want to be close to nature but aren’t a fan of camping, investing in a static caravan can be the next best option. From securing static caravan finance and planning for your British break to choosing the best places to pitch up and deciding how to spend your evenings, our guide to British staycations has got your summer ‘16 sorted!

Static caravan finance

If you’ve been thinking about buying your own static caravan, finance issues needn’t hold you back! Summer holidays can be costly, even before you factor in accommodation costs. Activities, eating out and even appropriate summer clothing are all part of the expense. Owning your own slice of paradise away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life not only means a more cost effective summer break, but also allows you to head off to your site whenever the mood takes you.

Static caravan loans are easier to secure than you might think, and if you’ve been looking for the best caravan deals, Pegasus Caravan Finance can help. With a variety of loans for static caravans, there’s a deal to suit your needs and budget.

Several lenders claim to be able to offer static caravan finance guaranteed – but not only is this illegal, it’s inaccurate. At Pegasus Caravan Finance, we work closely with professional and knowledgeable lenders to try and get you the best deal possible. While we don’t advertise guaranteed static caravan finance, we will work to find you the best deal for your circumstances – even if you’ve previously been held back by refusals or a poor credit rating.
