On top of the cost of your static caravan, there will also be an annual cost to site it in a holiday park. This generally covers costs such as park maintenance, use of park facilities as well as security on site. Always ask what is included in the site fee before signing up for any agreement with the holiday park.

How Do I Pay Holiday Park Site Fees?

Some holiday parks will include a period of time, such as the first year, for free when you purchase a static caravan directly from them.

Some holiday parks will allow you to pay in instalments, whereas others will want it to be paid annually in advance.

Usually, general running costs are not included, such as non-domestic rates, gas, electricity, water and static caravan insurance.

It’s hard to compare different site fees at different holiday parks – many variables exist.

Here are some things to think about when comparing costs.

Park Opening Times

Some holiday parks are open for 12 months of the year. Although you can’t live year-round in your holiday park home, this extended opening time provides more opportunities for your own holidays and the chance to rent out your static caravan to help cover costs.

What’s Included

It’s essential to ask exactly what is included in the annual site fee. Generally, all holiday park site fees include use of facilities, park maintenance (nb. not holiday home maintenance) and park security. Most site fees won’t include costs such as water, electricity, gas, non-domestic rates and insurance.

Special Offers

Special offers for site fees usually only occur on the initial purchase of your holiday home – but some parks will include the first year’s site fees as part of the deal or offer a discount. It’s always worth the ask!

Payment Schedule

Some parks require the site fee to be paid annually in advance, whereas others will accept it in instalments – ask what payment options are available.


The site facilities vary considerably; some are basic, while others have large entertainment complexes. When looking at different site fees, consider what the holiday park has available for owners.
