With many holiday goers ditching Timbucktu and Khatmandu for Ashton under Lyne and Newcastle upon Tyne this summer, the rebirth of the British staycation has acted as an economic buffer against dramatic losses to many regions across the UK.
Due to the pandemic, uncertainty surrounding foreign travel has forced holiday goers to reconsider their travel plans, with many choosing to revert to the good old Great British staycation. After such a damaging economic period, this trend was initially seen as a godsend to local businesses who were set to recuperate much-needed losses. However, this dream has turned into a nightmare with the emergence of the “Tripadvisor Warrior” rearing its ugly head. Complaints of slow service during high demand have left many local businesses in the hospitality sector desperate for a break. The Lake District National Park has even started a #LakeDistrictKind campaign to remind visitors to be patient with local businesses.
