Holiday checklist

Our helpful guide to a fuss-free, full-of-fun staycation.

More of us are choosing to holiday at home, and with so many incredible places to explore in the UK, and (hopefully) sunny weather to soak up, it’s never been easier to get outside and enjoy a well earned break.

Travel essentials

Choose your location

Pack up, pitch up and go anywhere you like! And with the right kit, it’s easy to create a home from home amongst the wildlife.

Sand between your toes, paddling in the sea or enjoying fish and chips on the pier. Sound good? Then pack the essentials and cruise to the coast.

At home

Make the most of entertaining at home. Host a BBQ, throw a picnic in the park, or simply enjoy relaxing in your own glorious garden.

Rising inflation

If you’re heading off on a staycation, then you’re probably carrying more than usual. Check your vehicle handbook and adjust your tyre pressure to support the additional weight.

Stay charged

A flat or faulty battery is the number one callout for breakdown services in the UK. Use a charger to keep your battery topped up whilst you're away.

Travel entertainment

Keep boredom at bay during long journeys. Choose between in-car DVD players, portable game consoles and travel toys. Or why not make up your own games?

Let the fun begin

Bike rides

Wherever you go, explore the local area and enjoy some exercise with a family bike ride.

Board games

Rainy days, or chilled evenings. There’s no better way to bring everyone together than with a game.

Host at home, or take it with you. Either way, it’s not a holiday without grilling (or burning) a burger or two.
