Nearly three quarters of Brits choose staycation over overseas holiday

Nearly three quarters – 67 per cent – of Brits consider ‘staycation’ a better option and as the perfect way to explore a city for only a fraction of the price of a foreign holiday, according to research conducted by Jurys Inn Hotel Group.

The research also revealed that over one fifth – 22 per cent – of those surveyed have visited more landmarks overseas than in their home country.

Following the research findings, Jurys Inn has created a staycation guide showcasing a whole range of attractions and locations for UK travellers to explore their homeland with suggestions to help holiday makers make the most of a break in the UK. From short visits to local attractions, to full day trips, the guide includes the best that the UK has to offer in major cities that staycationers could enjoy.

Suzanne Cannon, Jurys Inn Group Marketing Manager, said ‘We’ve noticed the trend in Brits choosing to stay at home for their summer break and we want to be able to help travellers to explore a city’s true potential.

As Jurys Inn hotels are conveniently positioned in the heart of key cities across the UK, it’s a great place to start a staycation, so we’re glad we can share some insights with those who are holidaying at home this year’.

Jurys Inn currently operates 31 hotels, including 28 under the Jurys Inn brand, two under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand and one under the Garden Inn by Hilton brand. Jurys Inn, which has won the Best Independent Brand at the 2012 and 2010 Business Travel awards, offers three-star accommodation in major city centre locations throughout the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.
