Is Staycation The New Vacation?

By in Holiday Blog with 0 Comments

Think about it, the COVID-19 pandemic has given a big push to staycations. And the hospitality industry wants to ride on this trend to bounce back from the terrible state the pandemic has left it in. Wherever we are, most of us are largely staying put inside a building and avoiding venturing out. No going to the cinema, no bar-hopping, and no experiencing a new place up close and personal using the local public transport.

We are worried about contracting the virus, but how about just staying put at a comfortable and safe home-away-from-home with great views and access to everything we need? Sounds good, right? That is precisely why hotels and resorts around the world are promoting staycations, and simultaneously attracting customer attention to the extensive steps they are taking to minimise the chances of infections.

For many people, money plays a major role in the type of vacation that they take, if they take one at all. If this is the case for you, we challenge you to look around your own backyard and think like a tourist. You have likely neglected your own surroundings and haven’t done many of the activities available to you. After all, who has time for that? Enjoying a staycation gives you the time and money to do things you normally wouldn’t, but have always wanted to. Spa day, anyone? If you are not yet convinced, let’s look at some pros and cons of taking a vacation at home:


  • No travel time, you are already there

  • You already know the language, money and culture

  • No vaccinations needed

  • No costly data plan or phone bill surprises


  • Not feeling like you went anywhere

  • Having no glamorous ‘Insta-worthy’ travel shots of your vacation

  • No travel time, no customs hassle, no jet-lag

As you can see, there are quite a few advantages to taking a staycation — we wll touch on the Insta-worthy pics later because that’s easy to accomplish. Now that you are convinced, or at least open to the idea of a staycation, here are a few tips to help you plan an amazing one.

Just like any other vacation, it is important to set a budget. Next, make a list of all the places and activities available to you, such as: theme parks, the zoo, a spa, new restaurants, concerts or events. Do some research to ensure you don’t miss anything. Make a spreadsheet, or Pinterest board, to keep your thoughts organized in one place, and the excitement real. Act just like you would if you were going somewhere you have never been before. After all, chances are you haven’t been to these places either.

StaycationThe trend of staycations is just getting started and from the looks of it, the customer figure graph is only going to climb through the later part of this year and certainly the first half of 2021.
