The idea of getting away from it all has probably never felt more tempting. But as talk of ‘travel corridors’, ’quarantine’ and ‘isolation’ dominates the headlines, all the extra baggage that currently comes with international travel makes jetting off this year, for many, a non-starter. So with our passports destined to remain lost in a top drawer, it’s time to start thinking holidays UK.
Maybe a staycation wasn’t exactly what you had planned for 2020 when flicking through travel brochures a few months back. But then nothing much has gone to plan in 2020, has it?
At Pennine Community Credit Union, we are big believers in making the most out of any situation. And with that in mind, we believe this is the perfect opportunity to jump in a car, camper or caravan and explore our great, beautiful British isle.
You don’t have to travel too far either in order to find a nice little place to rest and recharge. Blackpool, Southport, Morecambe, Scarborough and Filey all offer idyllic beach retreats. It may be more ‘chippy on the seafront’ than ‘sangria on the sand’ but who doesn’t love fish and chips by the sea?
Hiking became the nation’s favourite pastime during lockdown. Why not take the new walking boots on a week-long trek around the Lake District, or for those seeking an even more adventurous break, how about taking on the national three peaks?
If you are happy going a bit further afield, Devon and Cornwall are sun-kissed southern havens boasting gorgeous coastlines, endless views and a mouthwatering selection of restaurants.
And with the ’Eat Out to Help Out’ discount scheme running every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during August, your staycation will not only help the UK restaurant sector recover from a devastating few months, you’ll be enjoying delectable dishes at half the price.
Wherever you choose to go, PCCU is on hand to help keep your finances in check – we know full well how addictive those 2p machines in Coral Island can be.
