UK holidays 'have something to offer everyone'

Domestic holidays can offer a range of attractions both for over 50s and other age groups, according to the British Resorts and Destinations Association.

Holidays in Britain can offer a variety of options for over 50s and for the rest of the family, according to an expert.

New research by Virgin Money Travel Insurance has revealed that the number of Britons taking overseas holidays dropped by 12 per cent in the first half of 2009 compared to the same period the previous year.

It also highlighted a number of UK destinations which rated highly for holiday-friendliness in terms of price, weather and attractions, with places such as Bournemouth, Brighton and Portsmouth rating highly.

Peter Hampton, director of the British Resorts and Destinations Association, said that this demonstrated the potential attractiveness of a staycation.

He said that British locations can provide holidaymakers with a range of activities and options for any age group, as well as offering the benefit of familiarity.

Mr Hampton said: "There's stuff for granny to do and there's also stuff for the toddlers and stuff for the teenagers, because that's what the UK holiday market's about - providing what the customer wants."
