ALMOST half of people (42%) believe that holiday standards in the UK have risen over the last five to 10 years, according to a poll by property rental company holidaycottages.co.uk
More than a third (35%) find it less stressful to take a domestic holiday than abroad, without concerns about airports and luggage allowances, while 51% believe there is now more choice of UK holidays available.
The research found that 72% are more likely to support local business when holidaying within the UK than when they are at home. Sixty three percent of 25-34 year-olds surveyed make an effort to stay in independently-owned holiday homes as a way of supporting local businesses. This compares with 82% of those aged 55 or above who visit local attractions and tourists sites.
Holidaycottages.co.uk director James Morris said: ‘It’s encouraging to see Brits supporting tourism in the UK. We have a great range of coastlines, countryside, and fresh produce to enjoy right on our doorsteps, and it is pleasing that people are taking advantage of them. Such support indicates that we are set for a strong summer season.’
