Their main concerns include the risks of being stranded abroad, quarantine requirements and the potential loss of money if plans are cancelled.
In fact, new research from The Cumberland (Research without Barriers) suggests that some 83% of British travellers would prefer a UK holiday rather than travel abroad this year. It is thought that this trend is likely to continue into 2022 bringing a boost to the country’s hospitality sector.
The Caravan and Motorhome Club said the lifting of restrictions would be like "a cork popping from a bottle", following 2020 being a very difficult year for the tourism and hospitality sector.
An operator of "glamping" holidays in the UK, ‘Experience Freedom’ said bookings for 2021 were already up as people looked to spend more time in the "great outdoors".
Scotland and Cornwall seem to be the favourite UK alternatives, with 16% opting to holiday there, followed closely by the Lake District and Wales (15% each).
As 2021 continues to look uncertain touring or site holidays offer the appeal of presenting fewer opportunities for change and cancellation, thereby increasing their appeal.
