Affordable Holidays: The Effects of the Cost of Living Crisis 

The rising cost of living has made it more challenging for people to set aside money for a holiday abroad. 

But, it’s not all doom and gloom! A staycation can be a budget-friendly alternative, with plenty of opportunities to explore all that the UK has to offer. 

Best of all, you can avoid the hassle and expense of international travel, allowing you to truly unwind and enjoy your much-needed break.

Affordable Holidays: The Surge of Staycations

Staycations are rapidly gaining popularity across the UK, with more and more people opting for a break in their home country. 

According to a recent RSM UK survey, more than a third of respondents (36%) are planning to take a short break within the UK for 1-4 days over the next year. 28% are even planning to take a long-stay break of five days or more!

It’s clear that even after the pandemic, many folks are choosing to explore affordable holidays close to home, rather than jetting off overseas. Not only do you save money on pricey travel and currency exchange rates, but you can also enjoy a holiday that’s tailor-made for your budget.

However, staycations offer much more than just saving money. They provide ample opportunities for discovering hidden gems, making unforgettable memories with loved ones, and experiencing the unique culture and beauty of the UK.
