Holidays post lockdown

There are many great reasons to staycation in the UK, from iconic landmarks to some of the country’s most stunning coastlines, and it doesn’t have to break the bank either.

The cost of living in the UK is a lot lower than in some other European countries, making it a great destination for budget travellers. For example, a pint of beer in London will set you back around £3.50 whereas in Madrid it costs on average €7 (£6).

Many people nowadays are turning to online platforms to find the perfect resort, hotel or cottage for their next booking.

There are many benefits that come with finding your next holiday destination through an online search engine. One of the most notable benefits is that you will have access to all types of accommodation, from 5 star hotels and stylish cottages, car hire and excursions all available in one place.

Another benefit is that you will be able to book your holiday in just a few clicks if you choose an online platform.

Booking your next break has never been so easy!

The distance between the UK’s most northern point and its most southern point is 600 miles. The coastline of the United Kingdom stretches over 7,700 kilometres. At it widest it’s 300 miles across and at no point in it’s landmass are you more than 75 miles from the sea.

It is quite incredible for such a small country to have so much history, culture, languages and dialects, landscapes and weather. No wonder “staycations” post lockdown have become so popular. Post Brexit staycations have had a boost in popularity due to the lockdown and to issues relating to Brexit and travel restrictions.
