Who would have thought in March 2020 that we would experience the movement restrictions that we have for the next year and a half? With the vaccination programme having exceeded all expectations and the holiday season now well underway, where can we go? Read on to find out why 2021 is the year of the staycation and how owning a holiday home – with the help of our leisure finance – could help make getting away much easier.
Staycations – an Easier Option in 2021
Why not consider a holiday in this country? There is a massive choice and the UK tourism industry is experiencing a staycation boom like never before. Why chance a holiday abroad? If travel rules change you may be required to isolate on your return.
If you are staying in the UK, why not choose a holiday park? There are thousands of parks in the UK and each of them will have something different to offer – a countryside setting or a mountain, lake or sea view, perhaps. There are 15 national parks in the UK and many holiday parks are available within close proximity of each of these as well.
The Benefits of Buying
Owning your own holiday home can take the hassle out of flicking through one website after another looking for a holiday destination. Your holidays could be in the places you know and love, complete with all your own comforts and facilities every time.
When the park is open, you can come and go as you please and enjoy time away with family and friends. Many parks are pet friendly as well, so you can save on the expense of kennels for the family dog and take them with you.
Choosing the Right Location
Once you have decided which area you want to holiday in, check that the park suits your needs. For example, if you are likely to want to visit at Christmas, check that the park is open then, and if you want to take your dog with you on holiday, check that the park rules allow this.
Depending upon which park you choose, you may be able to rent out your holiday home to contribute to the cost of your holidays. Some parks will also offer a sub-let facility to enable you to earn a small income whilst you are not able to use your holiday home directly. This income could offset the cost of any additional fees associated with owning a holiday home.
