Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
As we enter the festive season, from all of us at GB Motorhome Tours we wish you a Merry Christmas. We hope for those who are wanting to be with family members over the coming period, this is both possible and works out for you.
2020 has been a particularly difficult year for travel, with many challenges being faced for continental travel, to the point that almost all the planned GB Motorhome Tours throughout 2020 had to be cancelled. However, not being a tour operator to give up, whilst continental travel has been unrealistic for most of the year, GB Motorhome Tours did turn its experience for organising interesting tours to arranging some closer to home tours. In September, a 24 day Coastal Ireland tour and a 12 day England Flamingos to Fossils tour were both completed. These were enjoyed by 30 motorhomes across the two tours. Additionally, over this last week a UK December Get Away tour has been taking place throughout the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire and Somerset.

It’s been great to be able to get away safely in these difficult times. Ron and Sue have done a wonderful job to keep us safe and able to socialise with others in the group. Barbara and Peter Ball – UK December Get Away tour 2020
As 2020 comes towards an end we look towards 2021 and sincerely hope things will be different as the new year progresses; to allow life to return to a more normal and to allow us to travel freely once again. In 2021 GB Motorhome Tours have many great tours scheduled for the year. We are constantly monitoring all aspects of travel so as to assess any impact ongoing restrictions and regulations may have on these. Also, and most importantly of all, for the safety of those booked to travel on each tour along with our Tour Directors scheduled to lead each of the tours. Tour participants with bookings for 2021 will be kept updated regarding their tours; as information covering the time and location of the tour becomes available an email update will be sent. At this stage it is too early to gauge how things will be from the Spring of 2021 onwards, however if you have any concerns regarding your booking for any 2021 tour you may email these to us at any time. Remember, as a registered Tour Operator, GB Motorhome Tours fully protects all customers money in a dedicated trust account, so should your tour not be able to proceed for whatever reason (Covid-19 included) and is cancelled by GB Motorhome Tours, then all of your money is safe and becomes fully refundable.
Before we get to spring, keep in mind throughout the damper winter months motorhome manufacturers recommend owners to remove cushions and bedding from their vans and store these indoors for dryness. Often the practicality of doing this is not easy, so a simpler alternative can be to periodically run a de-humidifier inside the motorhome to keep moisture levels low. Also doing this for 24 hours before taking your motorhome on a winter trip can be particularly beneficial, ensuring you set out in a cosy dry van.
We hope you have a good and safe festive season, we look forward to travelling with you soon.
