US BRITS love to be beside the seaside, and now we can flock to the coast this year, as the UK government has announced that holidays in self-contained properties in England can go ahead from April 12.
Brit holidaymakers will be able to go on a seaside break following a review of the current travel rules, which ban all holidays.
From April 12 people in England from the same household will be able to book self-contained holiday lets such as holiday homes.
But hotels and group trips with mixed households at holiday homes will both have to wait until May 17.
Trips have been banned since January 4 when the country went into a third national lockdown due to surging coronavirus infections, but travel rules have now been reviewed.
Holidays to the seaside can go ahead, although this is on the condition that coronavirus cases continue to fall and vaccines still roll out at pace.
For those who haven't yet booked a staycation, these are the best deals on breaks by the coast:
- Haven June four-night breaks from £89 per stay
- Park Holidays three-night breaks in Essex, Devon, Kent, Suffolk and Sussex from £176 per stay
- Pontins staycation sale from £35 per family
- Away Resorts four-night June breaks at Mersea Island, Essex from £287 per stay
- Shorefield Holidays June breaks from £271 per stay
- Holiday homes, lodges and cottages three-night June breaks with Snaptrip from £255 per stay
There are discounts to a number of popular coastal destinations, including Kent and Sussex.
Some of the cheapest deals are for Pontins, with holidays from £35 per family.
Back in January The Health Secretary Matt Hancock said Brits should be able to enjoy a "happy and free Great British summer" once most adults have received the Covid jab.
And despite the restrictions, a number of Brits booked holidays in the UK earlier in the year.
This led to holiday companies predicting a sell-out summer of staycations as bookings surged.
Cottages, lodges and holiday parks all saw price rises as demand increased.
Many tour operators were hoping to resume by the Easter holidays, although this has been quashed.
Despite this, a boom in demand from Brits saw Easter holidays soar in price by as much as £1,500.
