As the recession continues to bite, many people are eschewing their usual getaway abroad in order to holiday. If you are tempted to give up your foreign travels this year it might be worth reconsidering your plans. There are all sorts of great reasons to get out of the home place this summer season.
Enjoy the Sun
If you like the sun (and who doesn’t?) then you won’t really feel as if you’ve had a proper holiday if you stay in the rainy place. Getting some extra sunshine will help you feel much happier and healthier as well as boosting essential nutrients such as vitamin D, which you can only get into your system by spending some time in the sun.
It’s easy to get away thanks to the increase in the number of regional airports across the country. With so many flights leaving for foreign climes practically from your doorstep, there is no reason not to treat yourself to a getaway
Accommodation in Europe can be incredibly cheap. There are lots of great deals on self-catering, half-board and even five-star hotels if that is your preference. Often the cost of your airfare can be offset by the lower cost of accommodation abroad.
Save Some Money
It’s expensive to holiday in the UK. Petrol, public transport and accommodation here tend to cost a lot more than they do overseas. While you might think you are saving money by taking a domestic holiday, the chances are that it will actually cost you a lot more than going abroad.
Get Away from the Stress
If you need a holiday in order to get away from the stresses of work, then staying in the home place might not be enough of an escape. There is nothing quite like going abroad for a total change in your way of life to help you feel more relaxed and refreshed. You’ll also appreciate coming home far more if you have had a break from the norm.
Although British food is pretty good, there’s nothing quite like the experience of new flavours to really entice you and expand your horizons. There are so many amazing regional delicacies to experience when you get away from home. The food is one of the main reasons anyone should get away from the home place and try new things.
Immerse Yourself in Culture
Immersing yourself in another culture is another top reason to get out of the home place this summer season. Whether you are in Europe or elsewhere, there are some amazing cities which will be able to offer you the most inspiring art, museums, architecture and more. There is nothing quite like getting a taste for a totally different way of life and the best way to do that is to go abroad for a holiday.
