We all have been there, trying to cope up with the budget and time. If you want to travel without compromising leisure, or can’t go for a week's getaway, a weekend or long weekend staycation is perfect for you to avoid the hassle and spend time in seclusion. Staycation is great for so many reasons, it’s easy, doable, and requires less time. There are a number of self-catering holidays, touring and camping holidays, holiday home ownership, leisure clubs and even luxury holiday homes around the UK.

Staycations have seen an exponential increase in holiday bookings where some of the accommodations have already sold out by the time you think about it. To avoid disappointment, book as early as possible. Don't overthink it either. You deserve a long overdue break and you won't be the only one! So book now even if its two, three, four long weekends or breaks during the week between now and at least the autumn.
