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 has 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.
