However, Britons are starting to branch out elsewhere, said Ed Bassett, General Manager at travel agency Camptoo.
“Following the UK Government’s announcement… we have noticed a sharp rise in UK staycation bookings for the summer period,” he commented.
“Bookings rose 60 percent on Monday, February 22, up from Sunday, February 21 (Sunday is typically the day of the week with the highest bookings), and we believe this trend will continue as people feel more confident in booking summertime travel.
“Cornwall, Devon and the Lake District are the three most booked destinations in England.
“Interestingly, we’ve noticed that customers are branching out and trying out new destinations entirely – in February 2020 our customers had booked holidays to around 250 destinations, whereas in February 2021 customers have booked to over 300 destinations.”
