Staycation, UK, Staycation Scotland, Staycation is everywhere we look. It a bit of a buzz term which has been around for a few years. I would say it’s risen more to prominence over the last year.
What is a Staycation?
A staycation is a simple term relating to taking your holidays at home. Keeping your holidays local instead of jetting off to some far flung destination.
As staycation UK might look like a camping trip in England or book a night glamping in a different part of the country.
As I sit and write this The UK is still under fairly heavy restrictions. The country is opening up and as of the 12th April campsite & holiday park have started to open up.
The outlook for foreign travel
It’s hard to say at this moment to say whether foreign travel will be possible this summer or not. Its seems as though there is a feeling that Covid-19 is being managed in the UK. Vaccinations are going well and a large number of the population has either some level of immunity form infection or has been vaccinated. The concern is that the rest of Europe and indeed the rest of the world might not be in the same position.
With the length of time it take to get air travel back up and running it’s hard to see the same level of demand for foreign travel this summer.
Current restriction mean that travel abroad is only allowed for a select few permitted reasons. It’s going to be mid May before we have a final decision about travel outside of the UK. You can check the government website for the latest advice on travel advice.
Although travel abroad is important and we all want to be able to do it we have to be patient. Now we have the opportunity to search the shores of our own countries.
Staying local and staycation is different for us all
Depending on where you live around the world this could be a great chance to explore your own local places of interest. So often we overlook what’s right in front of us. We like to jet of new new exciting locations.
You can try our find a campsite near me function to help you locate a place to stay. Where ever local is for you we can help you find that perfect campsite.
This year I’m looking forward to exploring the shores of England, Scotland and Wales. No doubt that the demand for camping in England and camping in Scotland will be higher than normal. I believe they will be an opportunity for us all to get some time away and connect with nature.
Getting away now feels more important than ever before. For many of us all around the world we have had restriction imposed upon us to keep the Coronavirus under control. We have had a freedoms limited. Camping is a great way do boost your confidence and get out into some space. Getting outside of the four walls that most of us have been living and working in will be a great relief. The summer is almost upon us and we have much to look forward to A staycation UK trip is going to be on the card for many of us this year.
Final thoughts about Staycation UK
Do it if you can, embrace the staycation even if it’s just for one year. There will be plenty of option to travel to far flung destinations. Right now our priority should be keeping safe. We also need to make sure we look after our own mental health and the health of our family. Getting out and taking in some fresh air will do all of us some good.
