Can't Afford a Holiday This Summer?
School may be out for summer but many Brits won't
be taking a holiday over the next few weeks because they need to save money.
Financially stressed Brits
are not taking time off work because they simple can't afford it. Mounting
workloads and fears of being made redundant mean that nearly a quarter of
people are staying put this summer.
Research by Swiftcover
found that those aged between 45 and 54 are most likely to sacrifice their
holiday this year, with 28% of 16 to 24 year olds not taking time off either. Of those who do intend on
taking a summer break, 1.5 million people will carry out work related duties
whilst on holiday and a further 1.25 million UK holidaymakers admit that they
will make regular calls to the office whilst away, too.
Financial pressures may be
the number one reason for not taking a holiday this summer but that doesn't
mean that you can't enjoy yourself. Summer holidays are a chance
for people to wind down and relax after working hard all year even though times
are tough and it's clearly becoming increasingly difficult to take
the time off we deserve due to financial pressures.
But, this shouldn't stop people
from having fun and there are plenty of cheap alternatives to going on holiday and a fantastic range of discount voucher
codes to keep people smiling all summer. For example,
you can get discount vouchers for fun family days out at Pontins as well as special offers at cinemas.
You can save on just about everything, from a
relaxing evening dining with friends to an adventure weekend with the kids.
