Dear Purbeck Gazette,

I’m reaching out to share that Dorset is one of the top trending UK destinations for summer 2021, according to HomeToGo’s 2021 Summer Travel Forecast, released recently.

As people look to satisfy their wanderlust and enjoy the warmer months ahead, HomeToGo – the world’s largest holiday rental search engine – tapped into its extensive internal data to explore what’s driving travellers planning their summer holidays

A few additional highlights include:
Summer of the “Great British Staycation”: Searches for stays in the UK this summer are up by 188%; Cornwall is especially popular with a 301% increase in searches year-on-year (YoY)
Longer Road Trips: Travellers are willing to go the extra distance this summer by searching for holiday rentals within 166 miles (+27% YoY) from home.
Travellers want more private and spacious accommodations: The share of bookings for holiday houses, cottages, and detached homes are up by 58% YoY.

Talk soon, Mike
