Shrewsbury travel agent flies the flag for staycations
Even before the pandemic started playing havoc with our holidays plans, the UK was doing very well thank you. A Barclays Bank report found 31% of holidaymakers planned to spend more time in the UK in 2019 than in previous years - and convenience, along with positive experiences of holidays at home - were cited as the main reasons.
Book your UK holiday with your local Shrewsbury travel agent
Here at Opulent Travel Lounge we are seeing more people than ever keen to explore some of the wonderful sights we have here in the UK. Even those people who had not previously considered holidaying at home have reported back to us with glowing reviews about their UK holiday and apart from the fact there are so many sights to take in – there are lots of other benefits to holidaying at home.
Less travel time
Even a short haul flight can sometimes feel anything but ‘short’ when you have to factor in your travel time to the airport and the fact you have to check in several hours before your flight. Holidaying at home means you can just jump in the car with no faff or hanging around and you don’t need to worry forgetting your passport or airline ticket.
All the family can enjoy the holiday
If a key member of your family is of the four-legged variety – going on holiday in the UK means they can come too. Many hotels and self-catering facilities offer facilities for your pooch, making your break a true family affair. Another benefit is there will no hefty kennel fees to factor in to your holiday budget and of course, less separation anxiety for you and your dog!
Emergencies are less scary
If you are on holiday abroad and you get a call to say your house has been flooded or even worse burgled – home does not seem too far away. In addition, we know that wherever we are in the UK we can rely on the services of our fabulous NHS – no need to worry about holiday insurance should you have any health problems or accidents.
