Brexit Uncertainty Has Influenced An Increase In Purchases Of Alternative Holiday Homes, With The Majority Planning To Buy A Lodge Or Caravan

28% of Brits have said that leaving the EU has influenced and sped up their decision to buy a UK holiday home this year. With Brexit looming there is uncertainty over the future of overseas holidays, but Brits aren’t going to let this affect their summer vacation.

Alternative homes took the top spot, with 37% looking to buy a caravan or lodge. 36% are looking for a house and 27% wanted a flat, showing more are looking into non-brick-and-mortar options due to the uncertainty of buying a property during Brexit.

Kate Watts, said: “Recently we have seen an increase in our holiday home enquiry figures and sales, suggesting Brits are investing their money in UK vacations.”

Kate Watts, Holiday Homes Sales and Marketing Manager at Away Resorts, said: “Away Resorts have holiday homes available in multiple coastal destinations from Whitecliff Bay on the Isle of Wight to Barmouth Bay in Wales. Since Brexit, we have seen an increase in purchases at both of these and Sandy Balls in the South of England. All three offer Brits a paradise on their doorstep”.
