2009 was the year of the staycation. The credit crunch meant that many people chose leisure days out or holidays in Great Britain rather than trips to foreign shores.
However, the economic stabilisation that we have started to see this year means that some people are heading once more for the travel agent to book long haul flights and experiential holidays abroad.
That said, many holidaymakers have been turned on to the idea of taking a break at home. It seems a shame to miss out on the terrific scenery and great experiences that can be found right here in Great Britain.
This summer many people might choose to stay at home because of the influence of strikes, ash clouds and the strength of the Euro. Many accommodation providers are reporting that their hotels, B&B’s, cottages and campsites are already getting booked up.
So, what have you chosen to do this summer? Are you opting for a break closer to home or are you heading for guaranteed sunshine abroad? We’d be interested to hear whether there is an increasing number of people jumping on a plane.
