Two New Great Outdoors Shows For 2011

Two New Great Outdoors Shows For 2011

The recession, doom and gloom stories about the economy, the strong Euro and threats of airport and airline strikes could encourage holidaymakers to stay in the UK for their well earned holiday or short break.

The caravanning and camping sector in fact anything to do with the great outdoors has seen a huge growth in interest and popularity. Two new shows have been planned for next year to exhibit the latest caravans, motorhomes, camping equipment and accessories as well as products for walking, cycling and sailing.

Staycation 2011

Staycation 2011

Self catering holidays look set to be popular during 2011 as seen by a strong early demand for bookings at Classic Cottages. This specialist letting company based in Cornwall has more than 700 hand picked holidays cottages on their books.

Haven Holidays specialise in fun filled family hoildays based around the coast with their 35 parks. They are looking at investing almost £2m in their two parks in Berwick. This brings the total investment at Haggerston Castle to £6m over the past two years. Another indication maybe that the staycation trend could continue during 2011. Haven enjoyed a record year during 2010 even better than 2009 when the term staycation was first introduced to us. Signs for a 2011 staycation look good with bookings already ahead of the same point last year.

Year Of The Staycation 2010

Year Of The Staycation 2010

In a recent poll carried out by Blue Chip Vacations more than half of the people asked said they would ditch their overseas holidays in 2010. Over two thirds said they will choose to holiday in the UK instead which is great news for the UK holiday industry.

Decisions were influenced by poor exchange rates, impact of increasing Air Passenger Duty, environmental concerns and positive UK weather predictions. These findings are supported the strong rise in self catering bookings already for 2010.
