Stay-at-home holidays 'becoming more popular'

Over 50s seeking an economical holiday destination may wish to look closer to home, according to new research.

New statistics from Travelodge reveal that 32 per cent of those surveyed are planning a domestic holiday or staycation this summer, with trips to the seaside or countryside registering as popular choices.

According to Dennis Klett, co-founder and director of holiday site, many holidaymakers are choosing to explore travel options within the UK as a means of saving money during the recession.

He said: "If you stay within the UK you don't have to fly anywhere, you have the weak pound - a holiday in Spain would be much more expensive than if you just stay at home."

Domegos also stated that with staycation bookings up by 21 per cent in the last six months, many holidaymakers with second homes are looking to free up even more cash by renting out their properties.
