Top 10 reasons Brits prefer to take regular holidays in the UK

We all love getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and that may be why Brits could be ready to ditch their once-a-year holiday abroad in favour of shorter, more regular staycation breaks in the UK.

We recently set out to explore the public’s attitudes towards holidays and found that over two thirds (70%) agreed they would rather take smaller regular trips in the UK than one big holiday.

When asked their reasons for preferring UK breaks to overseas travel, less travel time to the destination, followed by reconnecting with nature and the great outdoors were cited as most appealing.

The ability to bring pets along was also a huge pull towards staycations with almost a quarter of Brits (24%) citing bringing their furry friends along as reason to consider taking more regular UK holidays.

Top 10 reasons Brits prefer to take regular holidays in the UK:

1. Less travel time

2. Able to reconnect with nature and the great outdoors

Many of our holidaymakers enjoy exploring Snowdonia

3. Able to bring pets along

4. Open all year round

6. Facilities on park (pool, spa, sauna, restaurant etc.)

Three of our holiday parks include spa facilities such as saunas and steam rooms

7. Better impact on mental health and wellness

8. Coastal outdoor activities
