MICHAEL PAUL HOLIDAYS has announced its acquisition of Caravan Sitefinder, the highly-regarded online portal to caravan, camping and holiday parks across the UK.

Drawing almost one million visito consumers and park businesses.

The biggest single enhancement, says CEO Michael Paul, will be the introduction of an online booking facility to create the largest park holiday sales platform in Britain.

Established just over 25 years ago, Caravan Sitefinder lists and describes over 6,000 parks variously providing holiday homes touring pitches.

It will operate in tandem with online holiday property website Michael Paul Holidays, launched 12 years ago by chartered surveyor and long-time leisure sector specialist Michael.

“This acquisition is destined to be a game-changer for parks and consumers, and comes at a point when UK staycations are enjoying a massive renaissance,” he said.

“Park businesses realise that in order tomers.

“Our two platforms, Caravan Sitefinder and Michael Paul Holidays, now make this an economically realistic goal for park enterprises of all types and sizes.

Holiday parks on Caravan Sitefinder can be searched under a range of different wants and preferences, such as beach access, as provided (above) by Sandgreen Caravan Park in Dumfries and Galloway

“The synergy between these two websites means that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and we see a very exciting future for everyone involved!” said Michael.

He added that visito rise this winter in defiance of the traditional seasonal lull.

“All the indications are that 2021 will be a staycation year like no other, and that many more Brito a UK holiday.
