2021 is set to be the year of the staycation. Let’s just hope the weather holds up!
With the ongoing uncertainty from COVID-19 and quarantines, many are planning to stay in the UK for their holiday. And who can blame them? With beautiful rolling countrysides and some incredible attractions to visit, staycations could be the way forward.
Why are people ‘staycationing’?
After a year of lockdowns and quarantines, many people are in desperate need of some time away from home. But with ongoing worries about foreign travel, the staycation may be the answer for more. In fact, this study found that seven in ten people are planing to staycation in 2021. This is great news for the UK’s hospitality and domestic travel sectors.
What are the benefits of a staycation?
There are endless benefits of taking a staycation. But let’s start with the best one: the scenery. The UK boasts some of the best parts of countryside in the world. Just take the South West for example. Between Cornwall, Devon and Somerset you can find incredible greenlands such as Exmoor, Dartmoor and the Mendip Hills, as well as mile upon mile of brilliant coastlines. Add into that the wonderful cities of Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth and Wells and there is something for everyone. And that’s before you include attractions such as Wookey Hole Caves, Eden Project and Longleat.
Another benefit of a staycation is the time saved. No queuing in security. No sitting on a plane for a few hours. Just get to your destination, unwind and relax. It also provides certainty at a time where there is little. Barring (touch wood) more lockdowns, travel within the UK should remain open for domestic travel. No need to worry about whether you’ll get the money back for cancelled flights and hotels. No need to worry about quarantining when you get home. Staycation’s allow you peace of mind.
