According to VisitEngland, from January to April this year (2017) Brits also took a record 11.4 million holiday trips in England – but when you think about a road trip, it’s possible you may not think about a MINI – it’s not what comes to mind when you think about a car to take camping.

However, the iconic ‘little car’ now comes with the £2400 option of an add-on  rooftop tent, and members of the public are now being invited to try it out free in a new, exclusive competition. MINI has teamed up with VisitEngland and Visit Wales to offer money-can’t-buy overnight stays in a specially equipped MINI Countryman.

In a staycation like no other, guests will get to experience the wonders of the UK, by entering a ballot to win a ‘money can’t buy’ experience; sleeping in a specially designed luxury roof tent by AUTOHOME, atop the MINI Countryman in a site specifically chosen for them. Guests will be fully immersed in nature and its surroundings – sleeping in comfort under the star-lit skies, and waking up to a breathtakingly beautiful sunrise.

MINI’s biggest car will be equipped with a special rooftop tent to provide an exclusive ‘Room with a view’ in areas of outstanding natural beauty that are normally off limits to the public.  See it for yourself here: https://youtu.be/AHgExlIGms8

Members of the public will be given the chance to stay in one of three of the UK’s beautiful locations: Durdle Door on the world famous Jurassic Coast in Dorset; the stunning Cheddar Gorge with a backdrop of dramatic cliffs in Somerset, and the majestic glacial mountain range of Snowdonia in Wales.

MINI has launched the experiences in response to a rise in domestic tourism: new research commissioned by MINI from OnePoll shows nearly half of us are more likely to go on a spontaneous break in the UK than we have been in the past decade.
