Leading park operator, UK Holiday Parks, has been working with an independent travel risk expert to ensure its parks are as safe as possible.

Holiday parks are already considered one of the safest options, as Lloyd Figgins, chairman of the Travel Risk and Incident Prevention (Trip) Group explains: ‘Booking at a holiday park has so many advantages. For a start, social distancing can be maintained as each unit has its own plot, allowing you and your family to avoid coming into contact with those outside your bubble. As opposed to hotels, you won’t have to do the socially-distanced shuffle as you walk down a corridor to get to your room.’

UK holiday park operator Bridge Leisure, which has nine holiday parks across the country, has also been talking to the Trip Group about the steps to make its parks as safe as possible. Andrew Howe, CEO of Bridge Leisure, said: ‘We have been working hard with our sector’s trade associations to put measures in place to keep our parks safe.’
