Brits encouraged to have a staycation in the UK

Pet travel site PetsPyjamas launched a campaign encouraging pet parents in the UK to take a holiday with their pets within the country.

The campaign, ‘We’re Barking Britain’, aims to help the UK’s pandemic-struck hospitality sector.

According to PetsPyjamas, if just 10% of the nation’s 9.9 million dog owners were to take a holiday in the UK in 2020, it could generate more than £2 billion for the country’s hospitality industry.

The travel site’s ‘We’re Barking Britain’ campaign features travel packages for pet parents to go on holiday with their pets at more than 120 hotels and self-catering properties within the site.

The travel packages, for two through to six-night stays, includes such offers as local produce, local experiences, no pet surcharges, as well as Covid-19 safety measures and access to a veterinarian phone line.

PetsPyjamas Co-Founder and CEO, Karen Hanton, said, “The hospitality industry has been particularly hard hit in recent months, and with summer abroad lacking its usual appeal, there’s never been a better time to discover all the UK has to offer. Through our ‘We’re Barking Britain’ campaign, we hope to rally up the nation’s dog owners to help get the country back on its four feet and reward our dogs for their emotional support during the lockdown with new adventures with their favourite human!”

The site states, “Dog owners across the nation are taking the lead by booking their next dog-friendly holiday in the UK – helping the country and local communities get back on track.”
