The results from a survey conducted by Travelodge with a sample of 1,500 British adults shows that hospitality will be in for an Easter boost. The survey shows that 67% of Britons will shun holidaying abroad and support British tourism this Easter.
Due to the uncertainty around Brexit, the number of Britons holidaying at home this Easter has literally doubled with 67% taking a break in the UK compared to 34% in 2018.
A quarter of parents will split the five days over two mini breaks in order to keep their children entertained during the school holidays.
Collectively the holiday period spend will boost the British economy by £36 billion.
However due to the uncertainty of the current economy the average amount Britons are spending on their Eastercation break has dropped from £1,315 in 2018 to £810 this year.
With Easter falling later this year and temperatures predicted to rise, the traditional British seaside jaunt is topping the holiday poll with nearly a third (32%) of Britons flocking to the coast. Top seaside locations include Blackpool, Cornwall, Brighton, Devon and Bournemouth.
Nearly a quarter (22%), of holidaymakers are opting for a cultural break to discover more about our historical cities such as London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Bath.
The UK’s rural landscape is a jewel in our national heritage, and it’s the third most popular Eastercation destination with the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, Snowdonia and the Cotswolds making the top 20 listing.
