Covid Vaccine Sparks Confidence in Staycations

Holiday firms are reporting a spike in bookings from people aged 50+ ‘Silver Tourists’ since the Covid-19 vaccination rollout began.

Currently, travel for leisure & tourism is banned due to lockdown rules. However, the launch of Covid jabs has led some people who are prioritised for the vaccine to book long awaited trips!

Despite being hopeful, it’s likely that many Brits will enjoy holidays in the UK this year as a safer alternative to travelling abroad. The introduction of quarantine hotels and compulsory testing for all arrivals adds another layer of uncertainty.

Popular UK staycation spots include Cornwall, Bath, Somerset, York, Cumbria, Tenby, Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) and the Gower Peninsula. It is reported that guest houses, caravan parks, holiday parks and outdoor pursuits are all among those expected to see a boost as they offer the opportunity to remain fairly self-contained within your household or support bubble while escaping the four walls! The desire to escape the crowds will also increase nature-based holidays which include walking or cycling.
