Tips for travelling around the UK

A staycation is a perfect way to explore a new area of the UK while staying safe and at ease. Staycations are more popular than ever, thanks to the pandemic. With restrictions still in place for travelling abroad, many families choose to go on a staycation instead. You can avoid the risk of hotel quarantine abroad and numerous expensive PCR tests.

Here are a few tips for your next UK staycation.

Replicate your usual holiday

Before the pandemic, many of us travelled abroad every summer for our holidays. It can be difficult to get as excited about a holiday in the UK. Try to approach your staycation with a positive attitude and make it similar to your holidays abroad. For example, if you go to a beach resort every summer, you could go to Cornwall for your staycation. Or, if you like to explore a city in Europe, you could travel to London instead. There is something for everyone in the UK.

Try something new

Go outside of your comfort zone and try a different holiday this year. You could go hiking in The Lake District or camping in the heart of Scotland. Hire a campervan and go on a road trip all around the UK – you might even find a few hidden villages along the way. The UK has plenty to offer – from big cities to mountain climbing. Step into the unknown in 2022, and you might just surprise yourself.

Consider your type of transport

If a campervan isn’t for you, you could travel by plane, train, or car. It’s up to you. The UK’s rail network stretches from major cities to remote villages. You could catch a train on a Friday evening and spend the weekend in an entirely different destination. Catch the Hartlepool to London train and use the underground to get across the capital.

The benefits of a staycation

A staycation is a perfect chance to relax and recharge. You don’t need to dedicate two days to travelling back and forth to your holiday. You can drive for a few hours and arrive at your hotel with no hassle at all. Just make sure to plan your trip in advance so you can secure any discounts on accommodation and transport.

You can save money on transport with a staycation and book a more luxurious hotel with the money saved. You don’t need to worry about converting your cash to the local currency or packing your luggage into one suitcase. You can fill the entire car with clothes if you want to. A girl needs options, after all.

Go on a staycation this year, and explore a new area of the UK.
