When asked why, 45 percent of parents said it was simply too expensive to go abroad, 35 percent said they preferred a cheaper UK holiday, a quarter said they’ve always gone on UK based holidays and wanted to continue the tradition, and 20 percent said traveling with children on airplanes was too difficult.
With more and more families choosing to remain in the UK, it’s inevitable that UK roads are going to feel the strain.
