Domestic trips are proving even more popular than last year, as Brits struggle to find any popular destinations to travel to on the green list.

Brits have been busy booking up summer hols in popular south-west destinations like Cornwall and Devon, leading to a shortage of properties and rising prices.

Despite this are deals to be had at big name holiday parks like Haven, Pontins and Butlin's and at holiday homes and cottages.

These are the best bargains over the summer school holidays – with prices starting from just £10 per person a night.

  • Haven school holiday breaks: 
  • Scotland from £23pp per night 
    Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset from £19pp per night 
    Norfolk from £27pp per night
    Sussex from £18pp per night
    Wales from £47.50pp per night
  • Pontins July and August breaks from £10pp per night
  • Snaptrip holidays homes, lodges and cottages from £35pp per night
  • Hoseasons 3-night lodge breaks from £33pp per night
  • VRBO – UK Staycation rentals 7-nights from £11pp per night
  • Sykes Cottages 7-night breaks from £39pp per night
  • Away Resorts breaks from £39pp per night
  • Butlin's school holiday breaks from £32pp per night

This year, school summer holidays dates run from Monday, July 26 to Tuesday, August 31, although this can be different for some schools

With foreign travel on the backburner for now, the summer break may well be the first opportunity to get a holiday in the diary.

Groups up to six people from different households or unlimited numbers of people from two households can now share a holiday let together.

Currently, there will be no restrictions on group sizes for holidays from July 19, as long as the fourth stage of lockdown is not delayed further.
