Pitchup Reports Record-Breaking Summer Numbers for Camping, Glamping, Outdoor Stays

When the pandemic hit, the camping, glamping, and outdoor hospitality industries suffered. After health restrictions got lifted, outdoor hospitality was welcomed by inflation, high gas prices, and other economic challenges. 

In a LinkedIn post, Pitchup.com, a United Kingdom-based online booking site for campsites, glamping sites, and caravan parks, reported a record-breaking summer season amid all the challenges the industry faced. 

“2021 was a bumper year for camping, glamping, and other outdoor accommodation, and many thought this was just a flash in the pan. We’re pleased to report that this wasn’t the case,” Pitchup.com’s post reads. 

According to the company, key highlights from its record-breaking summer season include a new record set for the most bookings in a single day with one every six seconds, at peak.

A new record was also set for the most bookings made in a day by an individual site—a medium-sized site with tent pitches and rental tents in the southwest of England took 95 bookings in a single day on August 9. 

Pitchup also reported that visitors from abroad to the UK also grew by 53% compared to 2019.

A record-breaking 9 million holidaymakers have also booked over 25 million bed nights with Pitchup since its launching.

According to its Facebook page, Pitchup.com’s search engine sifts through more than 4,000 sites in Europe, the Americas, Australia, and Africa.
