Great value for money isn’t the only reason to stay in the UK for your next holiday. With countless Blue Flag beaches, several World Heritage Sites and 15 national parks, it’s no wonder that ‘staycations’ are on the up as Britons choose to remain in the UK for their summer getaways.

Whether you’re looking for a fun-packed seaside adventure the whole family will love, or a romantic couple’s break in the Great British countryside, here are some top tips for planning the perfect getaway to suit your budget. 

Be flexible

When you’re booking your next getaway, keep an open mind. If you have the flexibility, you may very well save money by shifting your chosen dates – even just by a week or two.

If you’re not sure where you fancy going, why not check out our cheap caravan holidays? Browse the lowest cost breaks across 67 holiday parks in the UK, or filter by location, month, duration and even price range. Not only will flexibility allow you to save money, you may also find a brand new family favourite you’ll want to return to year after year.

Another great way to save money on your British break is to consider alternatives to peak periods. Instead of heading to the beach during the school summer holidays, why not treat yourself to a late summer break? All the sunshine with none of the crowds!

A British escape doesn’t have to be a summertime treat, many holidaymakers prefer to head to the coast during the quieter autumn months with their four-legged friend and a raincoat in tow. Don’t worry, most of our caravans and holiday homes have double glazing and central heating so it’s easy to warm up after a brisk autumnal stroll.

One of the many great things about embarking on a Parkdean Resorts holiday is the amazing facilities we have at our parks. All of our parks have free Wi-Fi in the main complexes, with many parks boasting on-park entertainment and Kids’ Clubs for the little ones. There’s even the chance to enjoy evening entertainment every night – so you don’t have to travel far for a great night out!

If you’re planning a day out in the local area, pop by park reception during your stay and the team will be able to offer advice on how to get the best deals on some of the very best local attractions.

Cook your own holiday feast

One of the biggest costs of a holiday is food. While we all love to eat out, visit restaurants and try local delicacies, there’s nothing wrong with a packed lunch or a healthy sandwich.

Striking a balance between dining out and having a wholesome home-cooked meal will help you save pennies on your holiday. All of our caravans and lodges have fantastic cooking and food storage facilities as standard, whilst many parks have their very own convenience stores, making it simple for you to make big savings.

Book in advance

There are a number of benefits to booking in advance – not only can you take advantage of deals or make the most of reduced deposits in some cases, but it allows you to set budgets without having to dash through last minute calculations.

Plan ahead, book the places you want to stay and then budget just how much you’ll have to spend, it’ll make the day-to-day budgeting a whole lot easier. Why not check out our Early Booking Offers and make the most of the very best deals for your 2020 holiday?
