Looking to book your next holiday? Check out our tips below to find out how to plan the best staycation.

Book ahead

Half the fun of any trip is the planning and build-up to it. Rather than waiting until your next free weekend or bank holiday, take some time to schedule your holiday in advance. With staycations being a popular alternative to international travel in these times, booking ahead will be essential to guarantee your stay. This also gives you something to look forward to and the knowledge that an exciting break is on the way, so start thinking about your destination, accommodation and activities and get that trip booked in!

Stay somewhere new

We know by now you will be sick of seeing the same four walls, so treat yourself to a change of scenery and experience something brand new. Whether it’s an award-winning holiday park like Fantasy Island or a day trip to the Theme Park, going somewhere different will refresh your mind and give you an excuse to try that place you’ve always wanted to go. From cosy caravans, luxury lodges and holiday homes, the choices are endless for a perfect staycation.

Be a tourist in your own town

Sometimes you can find exactly what you need right on your doorstep. The truth is that most of us haven’t even seen all the sights in our hometowns, with the hustle and bustle of everyday life getting in the way of enjoying the best of our local area. With a staycation, you don’t have to go far to find exciting new experiences. There may be a historic site you never realised was there, or a museum you’ve always meant to visit. Be a tourist in your own city and discover what your neighbourhood has to offer.

Get outside

If staying at home during lockdown has you itching to get outside, taking a hike or a peaceful walk might be the answer. Pack a picnic or grab your running shoes, or you could even get the whole family involved and try geocaching. Just getting some fresh air in the great outdoors might be the best way to spend your staycation and will help your body to unwind and relax.

Whether you are looking for a cottage in the countryside or the best holiday park in the UK, planning ahead will make sure you get the most out of your staycation. Take a look at our website to see everything that Fantasy Island has to offer.
