Everyone loves a summer beach holiday, however it appears that more and more Brits are opting to holiday at home and enjoy the beauty Britain has to offer. From the stunning, natural views, to the fun days out, there’s plenty of reasons why a staycation in Britain is the perfect summer holiday for 2018!
When planning a holiday abroad the cost quickly stacks up, plane tickets, hotels, summer clothes and that’s before you’ve even left the country! These are just some of the things you won’t have to even contemplate on your UK staycation: The added cost of calling home, extra charges for using your debit card, all kinds of insurance and nobody enjoys the added risk of extra baggage costs on the way back home! The great thing about a staycation is that you can take one on any kind of budget, if funds are a bit low this year, then why not try a beautiful campsite in the Lake District? Or if you have extra cash to splash then a luxury holiday home may be for you?
There’s also great deals and offers on during the summer holidays, so it’s worth researching before your holiday, to see what the local area has to offer. This means that entertainment and fun days out can also be more cost effective here at home than abroad, where you’re likely to spend extra without thinking!
Enjoy The Beauty Britain Has To Offer
Whilst many of us enjoy travelling abroad for the beaches, history and beauty, we regularly forget the beauty our own country has to offer! If it’s a beach holiday you want, then Cornwall, South Wales and the Scottish Coast have some magnificent sites to behold, if you’re lucky you may even get to bask in some British sun. Every county in the UK holds some kind of history, from Lancaster Castle to Stonehenge, there’s plenty of places to go and educate yourself and the family about Britain’s rich history.
And if you need a welcome break from all the history and culture, there’s an array of theme parks and adventure days out, that are fun for all the family.
Environmentally and Economically Friendly
2018 is the year of change and with people cutting down on plastic and emissions, a staycation may be one small step to saving the planet. Did you know just one return flight from London to New York produces a greater carbon footprint than a whole year’s personal allowance needed to keep the climate safe, with this in mind, why not jump in the car or on the train to the nearest holiday spot and enjoy an environmentally friendly holiday? Not only is it better for the planet but it’s also better for the British economy, as it means that we’re putting money back into the economy and into areas that can use the money to preserve beautiful landscapes and tourist attractions.
From the stunning Lake District to the Welsh coast, our beautiful country has a whole host of things to offer, so why not try something a little different this year and do a staycation?
