Follow these tips to ensure you're fully prepared...

When booking your holiday park break, you need to ensure that you choose somewhere that meets all you needs. Whether it's the first time you've booked one or something you've done a hundred times, or whether it's in the UK or Europe, our top tips will ensure you're fully prepared...

1. Set a budget
Sounds simple enough, but it's easy to overspend. Holiday park breaks are often thought of as a cheaper option but with an increasing number offering a wide choice of accommodation and the hidden added extras, it's easy to get carried away.

2. Transport
If travelling during the peak season, allow time for traffic jams. If heading into Europe, your ferry or flight might be included in  your flight, but what about transport for getting around once you're there? Pre-book your hire car if you need one and if travelling in your own car, don't forget your breakdown cover.

3. Location
Think about where you want to go and whether you want to stay solely on the park or go off exploring. Check out what attractions are close by to visit.

4. Duration
Some parks have specific check-in and check-out days. Some only allow seven and fourteen day bookings and others for set weekend periods. Check with the holiday park when you make your booking to ensure it fits in with your plans.

5. Dates
Finally, think about the date of your holiday. The school holidays obviously book up the quickest so book in advance.  If you're flexible, take advantage of some of the many late booking deals frequently on offer.
