Holidays are back on the table this summer and classic British trips will be more popular than ever.
Britons eager for a getaway after months of lockdown will be heading for all the sunny coasts and stunning national parks the country has to offer.
The travel ban may be almost over but flying abroad is not as simple as it once was and anyone daring enough to go overseas faces government restrictions. Expensive coronavirus testing before and after your flights and the risk of having to self-isolate on return have pushed many to reconsider holiday plans.
Eight of the 10 most searched for destinations this summer were in Britain, twice as many as in 2020, according to hotel website Booking.com. Beach trips or relaxing spa getaways are top priorities.
Jamie Lane of AirDNA, a holiday let data centre, said British holiday bookings had surged since the roadmap for lifting restrictions was announced in February. He said: “A combination of stronger demand and a preference for larger homes has pushed prices 30pc to 40pc higher than in 2019.”
City breaks have proved less popular, with the vast majority of bookings made for more rural settings.
