There are so many benefits of a staycation. Whether it’s less travelling time, reduced carbon footprint or the convenience of a holiday on your doorstep, one thing is clear: it is much, much cheaper. In this blog, we’ll be taking a look at 4 ways a staycation will save you money.
Holidays abroad mean a lot of time travelling and a lot of money wasted. When you add up getting to and from the airport, parking and flight tickets, so much of your holiday budget is taken up just by travel costs. With a staycation, you can cut these costs by getting a train or coach to an award-winning holiday park or using your own car. The bigger your family is, the more you can save.
We all have to eat, but it doesn’t have to cost the earth. If you have a whole family to feed, going out to eat can be pricey, but most UK holiday parks offer self-catering options to suit your budget. This means you don’t have to fork out for café lunches and expensive restaurant dinners every day, which will save you a lot of money in the long run. This also gives you greater freedom to eat at whatever times suit you, to cater for any specific diets or allergies and to dress however you like – hello breakfast in bed!
Exchanging your cash for foreign currency is not free. By the time you’ve factored in exchange rates, fees and buyback guarantees, holidaying abroad can incur all kinds of costs that a staycation simply doesn’t. You also have to factor in any charges or blocks that your credit cards might impose, which is an expense and a hassle that you don’t have to worry about when you holiday in the UK.
As well as being time consuming and inconvenient, arranging documents and paperwork for overseas travel can be costly. By the time you have paid for passports and visas, that is a huge chunk of your budget wasted on nothing more than paper. Avoid this problem entirely by opting for a stress-free staycation that will save you time, money and hassle.
The benefits of a staycation are clear to see. Even if you’re willing to deal with the extra time and hassle of travelling abroad, the amount of money you can save by holidaying at home is not to be missed. Choose the best holiday park for your staycation by booking Fantasy Island today!
