UK Vacation Alternatives
If, as expected, Spain, Greece, Italy and others remain on the Amber List, you may be considering taking a trip around the UK instead. The good news is, you’re not going to cost yourself a lot for expensive flights.
The bad news is that the prices of holiday homes and rentals in places like Wales, the Lake District and Cornwall are rising rapidly to meet demand.
If you want to beat the price hikes, you should look east, according to the Vrbo travel website. A summer in Skegness, anyone?
The east coast of England has offered UK Vrbo customers the best value vacations in 2020, with Skegness enjoying increasing popularity last year. Famous for its award-winning beach and retro entertainment along the waterfront, the destination offered vacationers a must-have coastal getaway for an average price paid of just £ 21 per person per night on Vrbo.
Moving further south, Clacton-on-Sea came in second with an average of £ 24 per person per night. As the largest and busiest on the Essex Sunshine Coast, Clacton-on-Sea has also seen one of the biggest drops in overnight vacation rental costs paid per person as well, a reduction of 9% compared to 2019.
Vrbo is one of my favorite vacation sites. Not as well known as Haven and Sykes Cottages here in the UK, it offers villas, chalets and rentals in the UK and places like Spain, Portugal and Greece. You can see more here.
