Staycation no more?

8 September 2009

Millions of Britons chose to stay in the UK this summer and forego their annual summer holiday abroad. If you’re one of the many people that chose to stay put this year, are you happy with the choice you made or have you been left feeling a tad short-changed?

With the traditional British weather raining on everyone’s parade and the recession still kicking around, you’d be forgiven for looking beyond our shores as you plan for your holiday 2010. Throw in fact that most domestic destinations still cost a pretty penny and the bigger question becomes – what reason do you have not to go abroad?

With sunnier financial prospects expected next year, families are already looking ahead and booking overseas trips to ensure they get their dose of fun in the sun. But finding the ideal holiday to suit everyone – from young children to hard-to-please teenagers, from stressed-out parents to elderly grandparents – can be a challenge.

Few places in the world have something for everyone at any age yet Orlando fills most criteria whether it’s theme parks, relaxing venues, golf courses and spas, or world-class entertainment, shopping and fine dining – you’re sure to find something suitable for you without being too pricey.

Log on to our exclusive webchat with Frances Tuke from ABTA (The Travel Association) and Danielle Courtenay from The Orlando Tourism Bureau, to find out why a visit to Orlando could just be the tonic you need. We will also be revealing research findings from The Orlando Tourism Bureau about the staycation trend this year and what our plans are for next year. They can answer any questions about a trip that is sure to make you and your family smile.

Frances Tuke from ABTA (The Travel Association) and Danielle Courtenay from The Orlando Tourism Bureau join us live online at on Thursday 10th September at 14:00 to 14:20 to discuss the return to real vacations.
