Less than one in 10 British adults (9%) said they were likely or very likely to go on holiday abroad this summer, due to anxiety about coronavirus.

As lockdown restrictions ease internationally, the holiday plans of Brits are looking to remain domestic. More than two thirds (69%) of adults said they felt worried about the effect that coronavirus would have on their lives, with the most common worry, shared by 63% of adults, being worried about the future.

As a result, more Brits are choosing to stay local for their holidays. Staying in the UK was the most popular option for Brits wanting to go on holiday, with more than a third (38%) saying they were planning a staycation. A large majority of these (84.3%) said this was due to concerns about coronavirus. 38% said they would choose a staycation so they would not have to isolate upon returning home.

Aston spoke to Ed Bassett, general manager at Camptoo to discuss the research in further detail and also the benefits of staycating during this very difficult time.
