Getting ready for your family holiday in the UK

12 July 2022

The summer break is fast approaching and, as most parents will agree, breaking those six (long) weeks up with a well-timed staycation offers a recipe for summer holiday success.

Whether you’ve already booked to stay with us or you’re currently browsing our network to find the perfect location, being prepared is vital, especially if you have younger children in tow. Read the following tips to get ready for your family holiday in the UK and start the countdown to a spectacular summer.


Be picky about your accommodation

If you’re yet to book accommodation for your family holiday, you don’t have to search too far to discover a great family friendly base with availability this summer.

Here at Days Inn, we pride ourselves on our family friendly atmosphere (even your beloved family pet can join the holiday fun), comfortable rooms, and excellent on-site amenities. Our hotels also provide the transport links and centrally based locations to really make the most of the UK’s best staycation destinations.


Devise a rough itinerary in advance

Once you’ve decided which Days Inn hotel you’ll be pitching up at this summer, you can delve deeper into your destination and all the attractions, activities and days out the area has to offer. With attractions at capacity during the busier summer months, you may need to book in advance to secure admission. Many attractions also provide better rates for those booking ahead of time.

Devise a rough itinerary for each day of your stay and research whether booking is necessary for the attractions you plan to visit.


Now prepare your budget

At Days Inn, we understand just how tight things are financially for the average family at the moment, that’s why we provide budget friendly accommodation across our network. With your accommodation booked and a rough itinerary in mind, you can budget realistically for the rest of your family holiday.

By preparing a budget in advance, you won’t get bogged down by day-to-day expenses on the holiday itself meaning you can concentrate on making memories! Budgeting also reduces the risk of overspending.


Plan your packing list

Create a packing list a few weeks before you depart and leave nothing to chance when gathering the supplies you need to make your holiday extra epic. A carefully planned packing list is a great stress buster, and will also help you plan your laundry duties during those final weeks to ensure everything you need is clean and ready to go.
