10 reasons to take a staycation
What’s a staycation you ask? It’s a stay-at- home vacation. You can choose to
spend time at home in your own environment or travel around your town, city or
state. Staycations are a great option for many reasons. If you happen to have less
disposable income this year and cannot afford to go abroad, you can still enjoy time
out on a staycation. Here are 10 reasons why staycations can be better than
- Take advantage of discounts and vouchers for local attractions like the
theater, cinema, theme parks, museums, etc.
2.Save money — no flights, airport shuttles or taxis to book which means less money
spent. If you stay at home that also means saving on hotels.
3. Minimize travel time — no hours spent hanging out at the airport, checking in,
passing through security, endless hours on the plane.
4.No language barrier, no need for phrase books in the local language, worrying
about your dodgy accent or awkward conversations.
5.Go for as long as you want. No need to book extra days to get a better deal.
6.Easy to plan — Choosing a staycation over a vacation means that planning will be
relatively simple. There’s no need to research holiday destinations, call travel
agencies or look for the best currency rate.
7.No travel stress — vacations can be stressful. You worry about missing your flight,
finding the taxi you booked, hotel check-in and check-out times. Staycations aren't
half as stressful.
8.Get to know your town, city, or state better. Most people take for granted the
amazing scenery and monuments they have around them because of the fact that
they are right on their doorsteps. Staycations give you the opportunity to actually go
out and explore your town, city or state like you never have before.
9.You get to actually relax — vacations usually force people to cram in every
attraction and excursion going so that you don’t miss anything and by the end of it
all you feel is exhausted.
10.Enjoy the comfort of your home — no hotel beds to get used to or checking the
sheets to make sure they’re clean. You know exactly what you’re getting and where
everything is. You will feel relaxed knowing that all your home comforts are right
within arm’s reach.
