Andy Hemmington, spokesperson for, comments: “We have seen a spike in bookings for UK destinations around the May Day holiday this year, with many more people searching for rentals in places throughout the British Isles."

“We appreciate only too well that families are watching budgets still, but at the same time they also need a break and a bit of a getaway. Staycationing in the UK is one handy way to make the most of your money, and camping or booking a B&B in Cornwall or Scotland can work out as a decent value trip away.”
