Vacation Staycation - A guide to holidays in the UK post Brexit

Wednesday 03 August 2016 @ 00:00

We’ve had the European Referendum, and we’re now living in ‘Brexit Britain’ … so how does this affect your holiday plans this summer?

For those who’ve already booked their break abroad, the national press predicts that holidaymakers will cost them more following the historic ‘Leave’ decision.

And while holidaying in the UK isn’t necessarily any cheaper, taking that well- earned staycation, ie, holidaying in the British Isles, is expected to ‘boom’ in 2016. Cornwall, London and the Lake District are predicted to be the top three ‘staycation’ destinations this year.

You don't need anything fancy to have fun in the UK!

Wigwam Holidays®, the national glamping accommodation provider, has already experienced an increase in online bookings as people ‘go for the glamp’ and enjoy ‘ a great holiday in the great outdoors’!

However, it could be argued that this ’staycation’ trend is nothing new, with a recent Visit England survey indicating the Yorkshire Coast was second only to London, nation’s capital, in terms of trips away. From 2013 to 2015, there were an average of 1.4m trips per year to this stunning part of Yorkshire.

Why would you even need to leave when it's perfect here already?

So let’s consider some of the positives of taking a staycation, whether glamping, camping or staying in a quaint cottage…

  • No queues at the airport waiting for your overseas flight
  • No weight restrictions on your holiday luggage
  • No need to visit the Bureau de Change
  • Passport expired? No problem!
  • No need for expensive inoculations
  • You can stop off at different places on your journey to and from your holiday destination, effectively adding an extra two ‘days’ to your break
  • While the weather can be varied, at least you can prepare for it!
  • Countless attractions are prepared for the summer, be it an agricultural show, a theme park, or a stately home – the choice is huge
  • By staying in the UK, you contribute to the local and national economy. The tourism industry employs around 3m people nationwide
  • There’s such a variety of holiday accommodation to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice
  • There’s lots of FREE (as well as pay-per-entry) attractions in most parts of the UK

So if you’re still scratching your head about where to go this summer, don’t ponder too long.
