During this uncertain and challenging time, some people may understandably have reservations about making travel plans.
With foreign travel off the menu for many – particularly as the government introduces quarantine restrictions for many overseas destinations – the staycation is becoming the only way to holiday for the remainder of 2020, and we couldn’t be happier.
As a brand that’s proud of its Cambridge roots, we’re always shouting about the joys of the great British staycation.
As the nation tentatively emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, there are even more reasons to say “no” to plane travel and “yes” to a staycation.
In this blog post, we reveal how you can book a city break with confidence post-lockdown so you can satisfy that travel bug in the most fulfilling way on home soil.
Choose your destination with care
There are tons of UK destinations to explore, whether you’re looking for a fun-filled break away from home or an indulgent and relaxing trip.
Whilst the latest rules and subsequent relaxation of restrictions permits unlimited travel throughout the UK, choosing your destination with care is a matter of keeping you and your family as safe as possible.
The government has begun to single out high-risk Covid-19 areas and impose localised restrictions. While travel to these areas is not officially restricted, it is not recommended.
In the latest Covid-19 UK rates, Cambridge and other parts of Cambridgeshire charted particularly low on the list of Covid-19 cases by local authority, making them much lower risk areas to visit.
Select the safest accommodation for your stay
Your accommodation choice can make a huge difference in the enjoyment of your break. You are after all more likely to have fun if you’re feeling safe and secure on your trip.
After months of offering quarantine packages and key worker accommodation during the lockdown, our serviced apartments are COVID secure. Our team is also well versed in providing the highest quality and safest experience to all guests.
We’ve even been awarded official ‘We’re Good to Go’ status by Visit England thanks to our hard work following government and industry Covid-19 guidelines.
Here Visit Britain explains more about the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard and why it provides the confidence boost tourists need to go ahead with their travel plans:
“Businesses across the UK are required to follow their respective national guidance, including the social distancing and cleanliness protocols that must be in place.
In England, the Government’s guidance for hotels and accommodation providers – such as campsites, caravan parks and short term lets – indoor and outdoor visitor attractions and conference and events centres outlines the processes and facilities that tourism businesses in England need to put in place before re-opening so that both staff and visitors can be kept safe.”
With their fully equipped kitchens, mod cons, luxury furnishings and private entrances, plus our strict housekeeping schedule, you can rest assured that you’re staying in the safest, most comfortable place during your Cambridge city break.
