Staycation Surge: Huge Number of Brits to Holiday in the UK
New statistics show the demand for domestic holidays will grow even as international travel restrictions are lifted.
The news comes despite a gradual relaxation of covid-19 international travel restrictions, and the success of the UK vaccination program.
It appears that over a year of stop-start lockdowns has rekindled a love for domestic holidays and supporting British holiday destinations. Indeed, 7 out of 10 people surveyed said they thought the UK should increase its number of national parks, and 81% believed the British Government should invest further in improving UK destinations.
Climate concerns are also playing their part in the staycation boom. 74% of people said that climate change and carbon emissions influence their choice of holiday location. In addition, the demand for more sustainable accommodation is increasing, as 87% of people said that eco-friendly holiday properties appeal to them.
In another interesting finding, the survey discovered that as the demand for staycations increase, so too does the requirement for more pet-friendly vacations. 62% of respondents thought there should be a wider choice of holiday accommodation to welcome their furry friends.
The CabinBookers 2021 UK Holiday Survey was conducted in the United Kingdom between July 2 - 6, 2021. 678 UK based participants were included in the final analysis.
