HOLIDAY bookings in the UK are booming as Brits are keen to get a staycation for the summer ahead of the lockdown restrictions being eased.

From July 4, hotels, pubs and restaurants will be able to reopen across England as the government eases the current measures put in place since March.

A number of hotels have already reported a surge in bookings, resulting in being sold out until after the summer holidays.

Hoseasons, who specialise in luxury lodges, said they were taking bookings every 11 seconds just hours after the announcement, according to Sky News.

Simon Altham, chief commercial officer of Awaze UK who owns Hoseasons, said they were expecting to see some interest but didn’t expect the “record day”.

While there are still lots of deals to be found, many are being booked up quickly, especially as a number of tour operators and holiday rentals offer additional price protection in case trips cannot go ahead.

It is also worth noting that while Scotland and Wales also hope to welcome tourists back by July, this has yet to be confirmed.

We’ve rounded up some of the best cheap deals across England you can book for the family this July and August – but you’ll have to be quick.
