Hospitality businesses across Cornwall are set to benefit from a surge of staycation bookings this summer, thanks in part to the G7 summit 2021 being held in Carbis Bay this June.
The tourist body for the region Visit Cornwall has seen a huge spike in the past week as people from all over the UK are booking now, and for longer stays than average. It seems that the government message to holiday at home is not only reaching its target audience, but they are also acting on it too.
Health secretary Mat Hancock went as far as advertising the fact that he and his family were off to Cornwall this summer, which doubtless got people thinking.
International travel restrictions eventually put in place by government are only just beginning to look like they have any teeth. The costly requirement of hotel quarantine post any international break, when added to a holiday makes UK options very appealing.
Hoteliers in Cornwall are reporting far longer than average holiday period bookings, with a noticeable increase in 21 day bookings. Restaurants and bars will doubtless benefit from the increase in both tourist numbers and duration of stay.
With such pent up demand being focused on staycations this seems like a ray of sunshine in prospect for the UK hospitality industry.
