With the resurgence of the package holiday, research carried out by United Kingdom travel agent Thomas Cook has identified that domestic holidays are not always a cost-effective means of holidaying. According to their research, a one-week family holiday to Devon for four can cost in the region of £2,299, whereas an equivalent holiday to Majorca £2,036.
In the UK, the growth of domestic holidays has had a major impact on its domestic tourist industry. Haven Holidays, one of the UK's biggest holiday park owners, in 2009 reported a 38% rise in sales of static caravans to sale-and-leaseback investors or buyers who want a more affordable second home.
