As one of the leading parks offering caravan holidays in North Wales, nothing pleases us more than to hear the news that more people than ever in the UK have fallen in love with holidaying at home. And this new-found love is not restricted to just one sector of the population either – couples, families and retired people are all packing their bags for a stay in this great country of ours! One reason for this may be that there are so many different ways to enjoy holidays in the UK – be it in a tent, a caravan, glamping or a holiday home. However, if you are one of the people who still isn’t convinced that the UK is best for holidays, then here are some of the top reasons why you should be considering it:
The most obvious cost savings when it comes to booking a family break in the UK is that you will not be forking out for an expensive flight to start with. However, this is not the only cost saving you will make. There are lots of smaller financial savings such as expensive food at airports, commission charged on changing currency, and so on. Holidaying in the UK will cut all of these little elements out and could end up saving you a fortune.
Flying abroad for holidays and spending our money overseas can be a great boost to that country’s economy, so why not help to boost our own instead? Tourism is a huge business the world over, not least in the UK, and there are many companies (including ourselves) who rely on visitors to keep them going.
We are all much more aware of how the things that we do impact on the environment, and so the fact that air travel is so widely available may not be such a good thing as it has a massive impact on the environment – and not in a good way! Holidaying in an area local to you – such as North Wales – and packing your car with your friends or family will help keep pollution to a minimum which can only be a good thing!
As we have mentioned before, holidaying in the UK usually tends to work out a bit cheaper than holidaying abroad – which could mean that you can have more holidays in the year. Instead of just having one family holiday in the summer, you could take a few short breaks spread out over the year, and enjoy more quality times with those that you love.
Choosing to stay at a caravan holiday park in North Wales, such as Plassey, means that you are likely to want to come back time and time again. We have seen many cases where families come back often and meeting up with other families, and these friendships just keep on blossoming over the years.
The baggage restrictions on airplanes these days seem to be shrinking rapidly, and a lot of companies are now charging for baggage. Booking a stay at Plassey means that you can pack your car to the gills with whatever you need and find that space you need for the toy you child loves or that extra pair of shoes that you just can’t live without!
We all know that panic you feel when you realise there is only a few days to your holiday and you realise your passport has run out. Staying in the UK means that you don’t need a passport, or a visa or even any vaccinations. One less thing to worry about when planning your family holiday.
What better way to beef up your feeling of British Pride than to visit some of our nation’s most beautiful destinations. I mean in Wales, for example, we have beaches that can rival some of the best in the world. What is the sense in flying off to explore other parts of the world, when you don’t even know what is on your own doorstep? We are very lucky to live in a stunning country which has all sorts of sights to interest all kinds of people.
When you are thinking of holidaying abroad, it is often easy to underestimate the actual time you will spend travelling. For example, if you are going by plane, you don’t just have to factor in the flying time but also the time spent sitting in the airport as well. Or, if you are travelling by car and ferry, then you will need to think about frequent break stops with the kids and the amount of time you will spend just sitting in the car. Choosing to stay in the UK means that you will cut down on your travel time dramatically, which is great news if you are travelling with kids – as we all know how hard it can be to keep them entertained on a long journey!
