What to Pack for a Caravan Holiday?

What’s different about a caravan holiday vs a camping holiday is that you bring along items that you wouldn’t have if you just used a tent.

Important Packing Tip: First Aid Kit

The last thing you want to do when you’re enjoying a caravan holiday is track down a doctor or a pharmacy for a simple cut or for insect bites. Instead, pack a first aid kit that can help deal with anything minor that happens while out in nature, so you can get back to enjoying your holiday faster.
