According to the easyJet Taking the Temperature annual report 2021, more than half of consumers (58%) are still too nervous about travel disruption to book a holiday . However, recent announcements lifting restrictions and simplifying testing requirements for international travel are renewing enthusiasm for planning and booking holidays abroad, and by October 3.8 million Brits had booked a holiday abroad to go on before 2022.
This is reflected in ABTA (The Association of British Travel Agents) research. They add that 36% of people aged between 25 and 34, plan to take a winter holiday this year, making them the most likely age group, with the second most likely being people over the age of 65 years old, at 33%.
As part of the easyGroup ourselves, we sat back and thought ‘what would help people feel more secure about their holiday? How can we support people who want to go abroad but are worried?’
Whether flying to the Maldives, to Spain, to Marrakesh, to Cyprus, Dubai or even Florida (all amongst the top winter sunspots recently identified by Metro), easyStorage is here to help with secure storage whilst you’re away offering peace of mind.
And, of course, self storage can prove especially useful if you’re going on a big adventure, extended trip, world-schooling your children or spending the winter somewhere warmer.
Give away or selling some belongings may work as a good declutter, and may even swell the holiday funds, but don’t forget that you’ll be coming back. Don’t divest yourself of anything you use regularly or which has sentimental value without being certain you won’t need to rebuy upon your return.
Renting out your place while you’re away is always an option. Pack all of your personal things and valuables up and remove them to somewhere safe (like self storage) for the peace of mind of both you and your tenants.
Of course if you’re renting your property, you’ll need to check that sub-letting is OK, and if you’re giving up your lease, you’ll need to prepare well in advance.
If you do decide upon self storage, don’t forget to pack items properly. There are a number of useful guides blogged on our sister website, which provides packaging materials for storage and moving, easyStorageboxes.com.
And don’t forget that, whatever your storage needs, we’re here to help. However long you’re storing for, easyStorage collects your things and returns them to you, keeping them safe and secure, even loading the van for you and packing if you want or need that support. It’s a new way of storing that costs about half the price of traditional storage.
