In late June, when Boris Johnson announced that UK travel restrictions were being lifted, it was reported that one UK staycation was booked every 11 seconds in the UK. With that in mind, here are some of the best reasons to rent out your holiday lodge.
Domestic travel is going to continue to grow this summer and possibly into next summer. Over the years, we have been lucky enough to visit some of the most beautiful parks in the country and we are certainly not short of natural beauty and great things to do in the UK. As we continue to ease out of lockdown, there is a great opportunity for holiday home owners to rent out their homes and earn some extra income. Feeling inspired? Check out our latest blog with top tips for renting out your static caravan.
Earn money on your empty property
If you are not spending every weekend at your static caravan, you should definitely consider renting out your home for visitors. This is a quick and easy way to earn some extra income and you’ll still be able to visit whenever you wish!
It’s the Summer of the Staycation!
Staycations are on the rise as more of the population look to escape their home offices for a weekend break. The signs are all there:
- Consumers are worried about the financial futures of travel companies, but also worried about their own bank balances, opting for short breaks over long or expensive holidays.
- UK holidays are a financially-safer option for most, but also domestic visitors would not need to worry about local health advice and medical practice differing.
- People are worried about how travel might impact the environment more than ever – 30% of 25-49 year-olds would swap a holiday abroad for one in the UK to reduce their impact on the environment (YouGov).
A new opportunity to work from your (holiday) home
One of the benefits of this new way of life is the flexibility that many workers have been given. Working from home is now the norm and we think there could be an opportunity to promote your holiday lodge. Invite visitors to swap their home office for a holiday home and to upgrade their video call background!
