Staycation Summer – backyard holiday shipping container swimming for the best of summer
May 20, 2019
Summer at home – long lie-ins, breakfast on the terrace,
playing or reading in the garden, cosy barbecues in the evening… Does this
sound like the relaxing and refreshing holiday of your dreams?
New research shows that more British holidaymakers are
choosing not to travel abroad this coming summer, with local holiday search options
up by a third. It seems it is a combination of Brexit uncertainty along with
hopes for a repeat of last summer’s record-breaking heatwave that is encouraging
people to seek holiday fun closer to home. Even established travel companies
are reporting big losses as a result of this trend due to a slowdown in travel
bookings. Sun and fun is about to happen at home!
“As we get closer to the summer holiday period we will be
able to observe whether or not last-minute British holidaymakers cause a surge
in this staycation trend,” says an industry observer.
Yet another industry source says that ‘more than 51% of
Brits are planning to spend their main summer holiday in the UK this year.’
“Backyard summers make great memories”

One journalist was asked, “What is the perfect formula
for a family’s summer holiday?” And her simple answer was: Time together.
“That’s what kids want, that’s what parents want.”
“There’s no greater joy than watching your child enjoy
the freedom of play.”
Increasingly, parents are looking for value in family
holidays. Even environmental ethics come into play when considering one’s eco
footprint with travel. And, of course, parents are looking at how they can also
enjoy some of their own down-time on holiday.
Bring on the good times and the feel-good
