Post-Brexit staycation SURGE in Britons booking UK holidays due to this surprising reasonOn August 3, 2017 by Margot
A study by OnePoll, carried out by MINI, found that a whopping 83 per cent of Britons wanted to visit more iconic areas and landmarks around the UK.
This then fuelled their desire to choose a staycation over a trip abroad for this year.
With the Lake District recently becoming a UNESCO heritage site, the first for the UK, it makes a lot of sense for holidaymakers who want an easy trip around Britain.
Some of the popular choices of destinations included the Jurassic Coast in Dorset and Snowdonia in Wales.
It also found that the current pound to euro exchange rate played a part in the departure from holidays abroad, with one in five of them admitting to the reason.
Less stress and being able to drive to their destination as opposed to flying were also reasons behind the staycation boom.
VisitEngland has reported an increase in British holidays with a record 11.4 million trips around the UK since January.
In light of recent problems at airports and flight routes, it comes as no surprise that a holiday in England might be the easier option this year.
