Many families will make savings with a break abroad this autumn, rather than sticking to the UK.

A recent Which? travel report found that UK holidays are £300 more expensive post-Covid, with a staycation typically costing hundreds more than a trip to an equivalent European getaway.

The findings were based on comparing the average cost of private holiday rentals, hotels and other expenses in the most popular UK destinations with similar locations abroad, and in almost every case, the UK holiday was more expensive.
