Brits seek sun as dreadful summer continues

This was supposed to be the year that the new phenomena was born in the UK called the staycationer who, instead of travelling abroad would either stay at home or only journey a seemingly short distance for lodgings, and visit local destinations. This was all done due to the economic conditions..

The British for many years have been the most consistent traveller to European countries however, the numbers travelling abroad for 2008 fell by 9% and by 21% in the first quarter of 2009. Travel agents had already allowed for this downturn but the reduction seen in the first quarter was more than expected with the British opting to stay in the UK. This was supposed to be the year where the British would spend it in the UK and break the trend to go abroad as a must.

One thing, which is certain about the English weather, is its unpredictability and all the sounds about what a excellent summer we could expect is already in ruins. The summer has been nothing short of a catastrophy with rain and more rain making this one of the worst summers on record. Campsites have been turned into quadmires with flooding widespread in the south and southwest. Whilst temperatures haven’t been to bad there is little fun being sat on the beach under a steady drizzle or an almighty downpour.

Foul weather drives stay at home Brits to search for cheap holidays abroad as bad weather looks set to continue. Late bookings for August have increased considerabaly as Brits seek guaranteed sun. There are still many budget holidays around and notwithstanding the economic conditions travellers aren’t prepared to risk a holiday downpour. With so many late bookings holidaymakers looking to travel to the airport by car need to book Luton hotel parking, Heathrow airport car parking and Manchester airport hotels with parking as quickly as possible because as space becomes booked the price at all car parks and hotels will rise.
