“While the UK staycation market will benefit massively, it could lead to hotspots becoming overrun and endangering local residents.”
The survey also found that Britons were favouring holiday rentals over hotels and B&Bs – with 75 percent saying they would opt for rented accommodation for their break.
“While the UK staycation market is set to benefit, it looks like hotels will miss out, with respondents favouring private holiday rentals instead,” said Clickstay’s spokesperson.
“This makes sense as it is much easier to limit exposure in a holiday rental than it is staying in a building with other people.
“While some hotels may try to open and introduce measures such as perspex glass in the dining room, it would be difficult to control the virus in such an environment.”
