Campsites and caravans, despite being popular even otherwise, are doing really well as the nationals choose to stay within the country owing to the current pandemic scenario. This has made this industry soaring, and they are hoping to extend their campings even after summer.
More than 75 percent of the campsites have to close before the winters and can only do their business over summer months in the UK. However, these businesses are hoping to remain open for some extra time to compensate for the losses they incurred due to the pandemic. They are looking at the bright side and hoping to make money even in winter, if not by camping, then by usual tourist visits along with glamping. These businesses anyway have only summer and autumn seasons to generate their incomes throughout the year, making them more prone to these global crises. The current bookings have been up significantly but the winter season is still uncertain and filled with risk for many.
Out of the many businesses that got shut in the UK during the second quarter, campings, and holiday destinations, over 46000 employments have got impacted badly. And hence if these businesses are allowed to function even during the winter, then it will help them in recovering the losses and earnings for the rest of the year.
