Staycations are still proving popular



‘THE staycation is here to stay’ say Haven Holidays, who have seen a marked increase in families booking longer holidays this year.

And it’s not just about saving money – it’s also about saving carbon emissions and shunning air travel in favour of a holiday closer to home.

More than 65% of people booking a Haven Holiday choose a park less than 2 hours drive from their own home. Which means they are on holiday and enjoying themselves in less time than it takes to get to the airport and check in for an international flight.

Haven say, ‘Our UK holidays offers excellent value for money with great savings for families. During the Easter holidays kids go free, with lots of included activities and entertainment. We believe it’s the best way to enjoy a fantastic family break whilst still keeping your carbon footprint to a minimum.’

Haven offer a varied programme of activities and entertainment on the parks – as well as a wide choice of take-away and restaurant meal options, well-stocked shops for easy self-catering and beaches, resorts and attractions within walking distance. Many customers don’t feel the need to use their cars at all during their holidays.

‘We try and encourage kids to be more green-aware during their holidays,’ added Haven. ‘All our 35 UK holiday parks hold conservation awards, with many achieving the coveted ‘Green Tourism’ award as well. We have strong policies with regard to recycling and energy-saving. This year we will be introducing even more fun green activities for kids with wildlife sessions, rock pool rambles and even glow-worm hunting and bat walks on some parks!

Prices during the Easter holidays start at £85 per adult based on two grown-ups sharing – with no charge for the kids. The price is based on a three night weekend break from April 9th at Wild Duck or Caister in Norfolk or Berwick in Northumberland. Check the website for other similar deals, including Spring breaks from £99 at Haven’s 35 family holiday parks around the UK. Call 0871 230 1900 or click on www.haven.com
