Over a year on from the momentous European Referendum and we’re still no closer to having firm and full answers for what seems to be an uncertain future for ‘Brexit Britain’.

And with summer now upon us, taking that well-earned holiday will be foremost in many folks’ minds. But what about the costs?

Economic experts predicted a spike in overseas holiday prices following the Brexit decision, and unfortunately, this now seems to be the case.

Anyone checking some currency exchange rates needs to sit down and take deep breaths while doing so!

According to a national newspaper, holiday prices to Europe have soared by a whopping 35% since the Brexit vote.*

An online travel website, Travel Mole, also noted the General Election held in June affected the speed at which people booked their holiday, making for a slower start to the peak season.**

So, where does that leave the UK staycation? Is this popular type of holiday still an option for anyone looking to take a break this summer?

The answer is most definitely ‘yes’!

With a slower uptake in holiday places, there’s never been a better time to book that British getaway before they all get snapped up.

Wigwam® Holidays, the national glamping accommodation provider, offers affordable glamping holidays, in short, a great holiday in the great outdoors!
