This summer is set to be the biggest season of staycations with 30% of Brits predicted to book a holiday in the UK.
Research commissioned by Holiday Inn has identified the formula for The Perfect Holiday - three days long and within four hours from the front door.
The research also identified that the psychological effects of a short break are just as good as those of a two week holiday and many holidaymakers find that taking several long weekend breaks is more relaxing and rewarding.
To celebrate the growing popularity of Summer "staycations" we've just launched our "Long weekend" package which includes:
We hope to see you soon.
