Travel in Class, Easy on the Pockets
Everyone has heard that holiday story from a friends, relative or neighbor. They tell you about that marvelous Spanish mountain inn, the Turkish beach front pension, the Moroccan Boutique raid or the Thai forest eco-shack. Their story then end triumphantly as they tell you that all this was for only thirty quid a night!! And then it struck you that this is not a tale you will hear very often.
There has been a real renaissance is domestic tourism in recent years as country weekends, ‘Staycations’ and city breaks have become a big part of the holiday market. Accommodation providers have raised them game from a boutique make-over for hotels and B&B’s to an entire industry of yurts, pods and teepees that barely existed a decade ago. True, it can be expensive to holiday and there are understandable grips when it comes to handing over a sixty quid or more for what looks all right on the internet, but turns out to be character free, chintz – filled B&B or when the best you can do as a family is an undeniably cheap, but charmless chain inn or lodge sited on a main road near a trading estate. Could it really be that there is nowhere decent to go on a budget, that there is no accommodation that won’t break the bank, that there’s nowhere in short, to show off about?
