Rethinking your summer holiday?

Hopefully tourism will be back up and running soon, but in the meantime you might be reconsidering your summer plans. Luckily there are lots of beauty spots in the UK which can play host to glorious daytrips, at-home holidays and even some summer sun (fingers crossed!). Got a trip in mind? Find all your staycation essentials here.

Camping

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

Be road trip ready

Are we there yet?

Reach your destination, pronto. Use a sat nav to find new places, emergency pit stops and routes to avoid traffic jams.

Under pressure

If you’re heading off on a staycation, then you’ve probably packed a boot-full. 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

Get the whole gang kitted out and ready for a fun-filled biking adventure.

Board games

Be prepared for the unreliable British weather. Let’s face it – it could rain at any moment!

Cameras

Capture every moment. These are memories in the making after all.

Suitcases

Staycations still call for suitcases – no weight restrictions here. Wahoo!
