A staycation holiday is a vacation spent in your home country. There are lots of good reasons to do this. Here are 10 of the best.

1. Stunning rural destinations

Britain and Ireland have some of the most beautiful countryside holiday destinations in the world. The Outdoor Guide agrees with us.

2. Low stress planning

You can book a staycation without thinking about how you’re going to get there. No worrying about flights, passports or luggage allowances.

3. Staycation travel is simpler

Jump in the car or hop on a train and you can be almost anywhere in Britain within a few hours. There are no restrictions on what you take with you, either.

4. Staycations are eco friendly

Staying fairly local, avoiding air travel or perhaps using a bicycle minimises man-made carbon dioxide emissions and damage to the environment.

5. Saves money

No flights, smaller distances and shorter breaks make for cheaper holidays. Alternatively, you could use the budget for one holiday abroad to fund multiple breaks in rural Britain and Ireland.

6. Spur of the moment trip

If you like to be spontaneous, you can plan a weekend away on Friday afternoon and be back in time for work on Monday.

7. Staycations support British businesses

British hotels, guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, glamping sites and other holiday properties provide employment for British residents.

8. No-one is left behind

You can take the whole family, children, babies, grandparents and the dog on a staycation without breaking the bank.

9. Comforts of home

If you just want to relax for a few days it is comforting to know that the food, shops, medical availability and language are familar.

10. Getting home is easy

No airports to contend with and if you may need to cut your holiday short for any reason, a staycation is the only sensible option.
