The British Isles offers a wealth of tourist gems to the holidaymaker: from the mountains of Scotland, the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District to fantastic beaches, excellent walking, and family-friendly holidays.
The advent of budget airlines gave rise to cheap flights abroad and sent us all chasing the sun, turning our backs on beautiful Britain. The once thriving holiday resorts have been largely overlooked in favour of far flung destinations brought to everyone’s pocket by low-cost Airlines.
However, as the credit crunch begins to bite and the price of oil has a serious impact on airline fuel surcharges, many people are reassessing their holiday plans. Also, the stability of the financial markets and the collapse of XL, Britain’s third largest tour operator, have given many holidaymakers doubts over the security of their future bookings. The traditional two-weeks-in-the-sun holidays, although still popular, are being rejected by many in favour of the good old British holiday. In fact, the number of caravans sold in Britain has seen a significant increase, and many campsites this year have reported record bookings.
By turning their backs on foreign holidays, many are now looking much closer to home and considering taking a holiday in Britain.
It’s now time to rediscover the wonders available on a British holiday.
British-holiday.info is intended to help residents in the UK rediscover the delights of holidaying in Britain and also visitors to Britain from overseas taking advantage of the weak pound.
