Staycations ‘on the rise’
There may be a rise in enquiries about caravan insurance after a new survey has revealed staycations are proving popular this summer.
Research carried out by insolvency trade body R3 found that 38 per cent of Brits are planning to spend less money on their holiday this year.
As a result, 59 per cent of these explained that they planned to spend their vacation in the UK rather than abroad.
R3 president Frances Coulson said: "The nation deciding to stay at home might provide the much needed boost to the UK economy, particularly in tourist areas and coastal towns where insolvency levels rocketed during the recession."
The expert added that it is not surprising that many families are keen to avoid travelling overseas, as consumers' disposable income has been reduced considerably in recent months.
Cornwall could be an ideal destination for holidaymakers as marketing manager at the Lost Gardens of Heligan Lorna Tremayne recently claimed it has attractions for all ages.
