The Holiday Cottages reports that more Brits than ever before will stay home this Summer

This Summer, approximately 20 million of us are expected to be vacationing in the UK. The weak pound and the surprisingly warmer past few months has contributed to persuading people to stay in the UK and shun the traditional summer sun getaway.
June 3, 2011 - PRLog -- After all, it is cheaper to stay here, there are no fuel duties or taxes to pay, no awful in-flight meals, coupled with flight delays and baggage allowances and numerous other hassles at the airport, so who can blame the great British public for holidaying in their home climate. Many of us remember the great ‘ash cloud of 2010’ and definitely do not want to relive the problems that caused. Infact we have seen this again recently with the new eruption in Iceland of the Grimsvotn volcano.

It is expected that our traditionally popular holiday locations will continue to benefit this summer, such as Cornwall, Devon and Blackpool along with our capital London.

The result of one third of us staying put will cause a £7.3 billion boost to the UK economy.
