Self-catering breaks 'appeal to sense of value for money'
27 October 2009 06:01
Taking a self-catering break is an appealing option to those who are concerned about getting the best value for money out of a holiday, it has been said.
According to Richard Carrick, chief executive at Hoseasons, the "mental leap" between staying at home or driving to a self-catering holiday destination within the UK is not very big.
"Most households have a car, they are going to put fuel in it anyway, they have a housekeeping budget whether they are staying at home or going away," he noted.
While taking a trip within the UK may prove to be an ideal way of reducing the cost of a holiday, scrimping on travel insurance, especially UK holiday cancellation insurance, could end up being more costly for Brits should something go wrong on a getaway.
According to figures from the British Hospitality Association's Trends and Developments 2009 report, during the first half of this year, 1.2 million more holidays were taken in the UK compared to the same time in 2008.
