Let’s Go Glamping: Tips For Planning Your First Trip!

If you’ve heard a lot about glamping and have always wanted to go, maybe now could be the perfect time. Glamping is, in many ways, just like camping - it’s the same sort of lifestyle, just with some added luxuries. So if you don’t like camping, glamping may not be for you. If however, you don’t mind camping but miss your home comforts, glamping could be perfect for you.


Just like camping, glamping requires a lot of planning, so to help you plan your first glamping trip, we’ve put together this handy guide. Have a read, take note, and you can plan the most incredible trip.

Work out what you have to spend
First things first, you need to determine the size of your budget. This is important, as this will impact the type of glamping trip that you are able to plan. So it’s crucial that you calculate your budget so that you can plan the perfect trip that’s within your price range. The most popular glamping options tend to be wooden lodges and caravaning, as these accommodation options come with the most home comforts. However, compared to bell tents, they do tend to be more expensive. But the added features that come with them, such as cooking equipment and bathroom facilities, are all it takes.


Where do you plan on going?

If you plan on traveling while glamping, a caravan could be the perfect option. Caravanning can be a lot of fun and a great way to travel - to learn more about what’s involved in caravaning, visit the Caravan Industry Association website and have a browse. If, however, you plan on staying in one place, then a wooden lodge or bell tent could also be a good option, depending on your budget and the home comforts that you want to have access to.


How long do you want to be away for?
The length of your trip is important to consider as the longer you plan on being away for, the more home comforts you will probably want access to. The chances are that if you’re only planning a two-day trip, you won’t care too much about the facilities your accommodation has. However, if you’re planning a longer trip, then you will most probably want access to better facilities, to make your trip more enjoyable.


Who do you want to travel with?

It’s also important to determine who you plan on traveling with. This is important, as when it comes to selecting your accommodation, you need to take the time to consider who you are traveling with. You need to take into account their thoughts on your accommodation, as well as your own. Otherwise, traveling together won’t work well. Sit down together and discuss what your priorities are when it comes to accommodation, as that way you can make sure that you both get a fair say in where you stay and what accommodation you pick.


There you have it, everything that you need to know about planning your first glamping trip.
