The study, which questioned 3,000 British adults as to their travel ambitions for 2015, suggests that 87 per cent of people who live in Wolverhampton – the highest percentage in any city – intend to keep things domestic when it comes to getting away. A survey released by hotel chain Travelodge has identified Wolverhampton and Coventry as the cities where the locals are most fond of taking a “staycation”. Perhaps it is because they live in one of the corners of the country which is furthest removed from the sea – or maybe it is because they love the feel of British air in their lungs.

 

 

  • Other cities where the locals display a burning desire to avoid the airport in favour of close-at-hand destinations, include Newcastle (third, with 83 per cent of residents saying they will take a break within the UK this year), Edinburgh and Norwich (equal fourth; 82 per cent) and Chelmsford (sixth; 80 per cent).
  • Welsh holidaymakers are also either tightening their belts or simply happy to relax near home the results said, with 78 per cent of those who live in both Wrexham and Swansea planning a UK escape this year.
  • A third (34 per cent) of those questioned said that they like to be spontaneous, and appear as such on social media – with a last-minute British break allowing them to do this.
