The Caravan And Motorhome Club Talk Experience Freedom

This week marked the kick off of show season as the Caravan and Motorhome Show opened its doors yesterday morning at Event City in Manchester. We were there and got a chance to talk to the Club about their Experience Freedom brand and how it can help you see more of the great outdoors.

The Experience Freedom brand is something the CaravanTimes team can personally recommend you try. If you own your own caravan you can still really benefit from what the Caravan and Motorhome Club have to offer and leave the fan at home for a weekend or two.

Try something a little different like glamping in a luxury yurt or spend a weekend in a £100,000 American Airstream Colorado all with Experience Freedom.

We caught up with Harvey Alexander at the Manchester Caravan and Motorhome Show to talk about what you can take advantage of with their new camping pods, motorhome rentals and luxury glamping getaways.

Harvey Alexander, director of marketing, the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: "We know the importance of spending time in the great outdoors, and Experience Freedom allows us to create outdoor adventures and offer them to everyone.

People who don't own their own unit, and may be a little nervous of the whole concept of camping, are now well catered for with our fantastic selection of pods, yurts and Airstreams.

Alexander continued: "Motorhome hire, with our partner Swift Go, also provides holidaymakers with the opportunity to try their hand at motorhoming.

Camping is also a huge element of the Experience Freedom brand and we offer excellent facilities at over 40 tent camping sites; enabling as many people as possible to enjoy the great outdoors and build lasting holiday memories".

The Club's Brighton site, one of my personal favourites, which has some camping pods and 2 Airstream Colorados, is now getting 10 brand new stylish glamping pods which should be ready in a few short months time.

What is great about the Club's other holiday service is that it is open to absolutely everyone, not just members. So do miss out and enjoy an all new holiday type in 2019.
