I don't think anything will stop me travelling or going on holiday but apparently fears over flying, terrorist attacks and unease about security at many of the popular overseas holiday hot spots, has sparked a dramatic increase in demand for a UK holiday this year. Thousands of families are changing their upcoming holiday plans to avoid flying, or visiting riskier destinations like Egypt or Tunisia. So if you are worrying about it, you aren't on your own.
Recent data suggests that self catering, camping (you wouldn't get me in a tent) and outdoor type holidays are booming in response to heightened fears. With the most popular UK holiday destinations being the Lake District, the Highlands and Cornwall, that'd be because they're beautiful and should be visited by all. Motorhomes in particular are seeing a sharp rise in popularity as families can have a holiday in the UK or overseas, without having to fly or risk getting caught up in a situation far from home. Now this is more like it, I have never really thought of hiring one but as you can take the dog with you I may just look into it for this summer. OK so we can't afford to buy a luxury new motorhome, a family of four (plus a dog) can hire one for around £850 per week during the summer season from nationwide hire specialists, UnbeatableHire Ltd. They have said...
"Families are genuinely worried about taking holidays that involve flying or visiting risky destinations. To meet the demand, we've invested over £3.6 million in 100 new vehicles and opened more new hire depots this year." Said Andrew Hughes, founder and managing director.
"Whilst fears over travel safety persist for many holidaymakers, home grown and especially motorhome holidays are becoming very popular. Even though we have over 300 vehicles available for hire, demand is already outstripping supply for the upcoming summer season."
