Why More And More People Are Planning A Staycation This Year

Have you ever heard of the term ‘staycation’? It’s the word on everyone’s lips recently, as more and more people consider vacationing closer to home instead of hopping on a boat, plane or train across the world. This is why so many people are planning a staycation this year – and why you should be too!

Saving Money

Of course, one of the biggest reasons why people consider a staycation is because it saves a whole ton of money. You’re spending less on travel, new clothes, currency, insurance, and basically everything else that goes with leaving the house. However, you don’t have to stay in your house to save money – a staycation could also just be somewhere close to home, such as an AirBnB in the next pretty town.

Saving The Planet

All of the air travel we do nowadays is seriously harmful to the planet – and don’t even get us started on the amount of waste that cruise ships churn out. If you want to do your bit for the environment then consider vacationing a bit closer to home. You’ll reduce your carbon footprint by not having to travel far, and reduce things like plastic waste from those little hand-luggage-friendly toiletry bottles.

Save Your Town

If you live somewhere that isn’t exactly known for its tourism, then maybe that could change! Rally your friends together to explore your local town or city, to see what it has to offer. Not only may you be surprised at a few hidden gems, but you’ll be pumping money back into the local economy. Explore those family-run local restaurants… They’re worth it!

Are you sold on a staycation this year yet? There are so many benefits, you might find yourself wanting to stay closer to home every year.
