The question of whether to staycation in the UK or holiday abroad is usually a matter of personal choice. But recent events such as the pandemic and now the latest debacle with flights and holidays being cancelled, with hopes being dashed in the process – British families and those wishing to escape for the summer are now having to narrow down the options – staycations seem to be here to stay!
But this isn’t a bad thing, and if you were one of the businesses in hospitality who saw an increase in bookings and a new range of customers treating themselves to a UK holiday last year; you’ll know what we mean. But if by chance you missed out, it’s not too late to showcase your services to 1000s of families, travellers and first time staycationers today as the country gears up for the summer and school holidays.
As the aviation industry struggles to replenish its workforce (no easy task, and something that could take years); having make extreme cuts to workforce and finding itself too short-staffed for the current demands for travel – a great opportunity presents itself for businesses within the hospitality sector across the UK to bridge the immediate gap and show people what’s on offer locally.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps reportedly spent months warning the travel industry to be prepared for a sudden increase in demand, but now UK based hospitality businesses have a second chance.
