Modern life is stressful, full of different expectations and filled with obligations. We often feel the need to take a break, to escape the mad world and to step of the fast train. Taking either mini-breaks or longer holidays is not a luxury anymore, because options are available off the beaten track of package holidays and arranged charter flights. Now consumers have a choice whether to follow the offer, available in tourist agencies and holiday catalogues, or to be creative and listen to the inner voice of adventure, comfort and individualism. Holiday retailers and agents are struggling to keep up with the boom of alternative offers, which spread mostly through social networks, are related to personal exchanges and experiences and range from minimal budgets to high-class services. The common denominator of all developments in leisure trends recently is the fact that people want more flexibility and variability, with the option of quick changes and modifications. For any business in this industry to thrive, modularity and variability are key.
Since the beginning of 20th century with increased industrialisation, people have been holidaying in various ways, always seeking to spend some leisure time with loved ones. In nature or pursuing various enjoyable activities. In today’s digital and globalized world, high quality holidaying does not need to mean expensive luxury vacations. This may mean travelling outside of peak periods to avoid high ticket prices and crowded airports or congested roads. If this is not possible due to date restrictions of work schedules, try to travel at odd times or with a day’s delay, if possible. Another good way to avoid excessive crowds if to look around and try to find ways of holidaying that are less obvious to the people holidaying in your circles. This may mean taking the car instead of flying, or even considering going by train. What is more, accommodation choices can save time, money and nerves. That is why more and more people are choosing private accommodation or are even opting to buy a holiday home themselves. Contrary to popular belief, this may not cost as much as you think and could be a good option for families with children or young retirees. Modular or mobile constructions that are easily moved and reassembled could be especially interesting from the financial and modular point of view.
With the spread of different holidaying alternatives and the rise in demands of flexibility, there might not be a big difference anymore in prices, as regards buying or renting. Long or short-term rentals are available at short notice, while buying can come at comparable prices to renting. The demands of the modern consumer, therefore, are more as regards flexibility and adaptability. A welcome answer to all of those could be the prefab modular buildings. They are standardized in size and built according to all health and fire safety standards. The natural materials follow fresh design and high energy- efficiency standards, comparable to any other construction type. Especially prefab camping cabins are a good holiday choice for families with children or retired couples looking for a second home. They can be moved easily and will follow you in your quest for the sun. They come equipped with electrical and sanitary installations, giving extra comfort and allowing you one less thing to worry about.
We know now that modern consumers value time more than money. In line with this trend, you might save more time if you plan your holiday in such a way that you avoid congestions and plot your connections carefully, if you’re taking various flights. You can always take advantage of shortcuts or even take detours, if you’re travelling by car. Sometimes driving off highways can mean travelling faster because you avoid staying in traffic jams. Be sure to leave early or towards the end of the day, which will help you avoid rush hours. Think about what you really and pack wisely, because sometime luggage costs extra. You are probably able to buy many items at your destination as well. This can be another plus of the prefab camping cabins: you'll always know you have your basic utensils there, as well as a fully equipped functioning apartment, which can be a big help with small children or a predictability factor.
Whatever your holidaying choices are, make sure to travel only when you need it. Don’t feel guilty if you stay at home. A high-quality movie or a good homemade dinner can do much more for your inner peace and reconnecting with yourself and your loved-ones. Don’t follow the crowd, listen to yourself and decide according to what feels right for you, to be able to enjoy your scarce time fully.
