Sixty seven per cent (67%) of Britons are taking matters into their own hands and shunning holidaying abroad and supporting British tourism this Easter.

Due to the uncertainly around Brexit, the number of Britons holidaying at home this Easter has literally doubled with 67% taking an Eastercation break compared to just 34% in 2018.

These findings have been revealed in a new holiday report issue by Travelodge which operates 563 hotels across the UK which surveyed 1,500 British adults on their Easter holiday plans.

Key findings revealed British holidaymakers will spend on average £810 on a five-day Eastercation break, discovering what makes Britain so Great!

A quarter of parents will split the five days over two mini breaks in order to keep their children entertained during the school holidays.

Collectively the Eastercation holiday spend will boost the British economy by £36 billion.     

Other findings revealed that 72%of respondents reported that Brexit is the key reason to why they are holidaying in the UK this Easter.

However due to the uncertainly of the current economy the average amount Britons are spending on their Eastercation break has dropped from £1315 in 2018 to £810 this year. Under a fifth at 18% of Britons reported that they are holidaying abroad during the Easter holidays.

With Easter falling later this year and temperatures predicted to rise, the traditional British seaside jaunt is topping the Eastercation holiday poll with nearly a third (32%) of Britons flocking to the coast. Top seaside locations include: Blackpool, Cornwall, Brighton, Devon and Bournemouth.  

Nearly a quarter (22%), of holidaymakers are opting for a cultural break to discover more about our historical cities such as: London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Bath.

The UK’s rural landscape is a jewel in our national heritage and it is the third most popular Eastercation destination with the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, Snowdonia and the Cotswolds making the top 20 listing of top Eastercation locations.
