Barclays : Staycation nation that can't sit still

08/30/2015 | 02:04am US/Eastern

MORE than three-quarters of people are planning a holiday within the UK this year.

Some 77% of Britons have already been on a so-called staycation or are planning to take one, according to a Barclays Business poll of 2,000 adults.

Barclays said this is a huge boost for small and medium businesses in the accommodation and food sector.

It found that in 2014 turnover for these businesses rose 11% from the previous year.

Adam Rowse, head of Barclays business banking, said: "With this last bank holiday getaway of the year it's great to see a boom in UK staycationers. [In] the staycation economy Pounds 22.5 billion is spent on average every year."
