The New Year is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start thinking about what the next 12 months will bring. According to holiday industry experts, 2020 will be a bumper year for UK travel, with many families choosing to ditch the all-inclusive and enjoy staycations closer to home.
Here we outline the travel trends that are expected to be big in 2020. They might give you some inspiration for your next break at a Best of British holiday park!
Embrace short breaks
Short breaks have grown in popularity over the last couple of years and it looks like the trend is here to stay. More and more people are choosing to take frequent mini breaks, which enables them to experience a number of new places throughout the year. As part of this trend, people are choosing to holiday closer to home, so that they can maximise their couple of days away. This means that travellers are discovering the beauty on their doorstep and trying attractions that they may otherwise overlook.
Why not challenge yourself to enjoy a stay at the closest Best of British park to your home this year? You can be a tourist in your own town!

Take a multigenerational trip
Due to busy lives and work commitments, finding time to spend with family can be difficult. That’s why in 2020 more travellers than ever before are expected to holiday in large groups, comprising of friends and extended family members.
Our family friendly holiday parks are a great option for multigenerational holidays, because there are so many facilities on offer to keep the whole family entertained. Children will love our parks with swimming pools and on-site entertainment, whilst older members of the family can take advantage of wellness facilities and award-winning restaurants and bars.

For many visitors this year, holidays will be about taking part in unique excursions, making memories and learning new skills. During your 2020 stay at a Best of British Park, why not challenge yourself to push your boundaries and try a new activity.

Go green with sustainable travel
Travellers are growing increasingly aware of the impact that their holidays are having on the environment and making conscious decisions to minimise their carbon footprint. Choosing to stay at a Best of British holiday park means you won’t have to fly and you can even make use of public transport.
Plenty of parks in the Best of British group are becoming more mindful of the environment and introducing new initiatives to improve sustainability. Adaptions include installing solar panels and seasonal menus, which make use of local produce.

Holiday in the off-season
When we think of holidays, summer usually comes to mind, but why restrict your hard-earned time off to just a couple of months of the year? Off season travel is expected to be big in 2020, with many families choosing to holiday in the autumn and winter. Travelling in the shoulder months certainly has a number of advantages, including fewer crowds and fantastic special offers. Without so many people about you can slow down and take the time to really get to know a place. What’s more, our year-round holiday parks will be quieter, so you’ll have free rein of the facilities!

Choose a unique accommodation option
2020 is set to be the year of glamping holidays, with guests seeking quirky accommodation. Over the last couple of years our parks have embraced the glamping trend and developed out of the ordinary accommodation options, including shepherds huts, pods, hobbit holes and even traditional Romany caravans! If you haven’t already, why not book your first glamping break in the New Year.
