Brexit causing Staycations - Book early to avoid dissappointment.

Brexit has had a positive effect on British holidaymakers choosing to staycation in the UK.

Here at Alkington Grange Barns we are also see a great deal of interest for 2018. Some Peak weeks are selling fast.

Following on from the tumultuous exchange rate and Ryanair flight chaos, many travellers are choosing to stay in the UK this year.

According to research by CrossCountry trains, a third of the nation (27 per cent) has admitted that Brexit has changed their future travelling plans.

With 39 per cent fearing they will be less welcomed by many pro-EU countries during a holiday, it seems that a trip around Britain is a more favourable choice

London is the most visited destination in the UK, with Manchester and Edinburgh both at 31 per cent as a favourite to visit.

Birmingham (27 per cent) and Edinburgh (21 per cent) are also a popular choice with people travelling within the UK.

Many Britons would favour train travel as the easier option, as 80 per cent said they prefer this method of travel over a car.

Train journeys are often a fraction of the time, which makes sense for a more relaxing holiday

Catherine Terry, Head of Marketing at CrossCountry, commented: “Following the decision on Brexit, the nation’s attention has turned back towards Britain and staycations are on the up. 

“With an incredible mixture of inspiring culture, beautiful landscapes and stimulating people, Britain has more to offer than most of us care to realise.”

CrossCountry is celebrating it’s 10th year this month, and has announced its plan to add WiFi to its trains just last month.

As 3 in 5 Britons admit to having already taken a staycation holiday, the popularity of exploring the UK is yet to wane.
