The holiday market is looking very different to how it did just a year ago and families are beginning to realise it might not return to normal any time soon.

Caravan parks and camping sites are already starting to get booked up for summer 2021, as holidaymakers ensure they don't miss out on a break away next year and staycations look set to continue.

The big names, such as Parkdean Resorts, Haven and Park Resorts are advertising deals for the summer holidays and starting to see bookings rolling in, reports The Sun.

And they're not the only ones. saw an uptick of 500 per cent on holidays for next summer last month alone.

Canopy and Stars reported more bookings coming in for August 2021 then it had for August this year.

With confidence in foreign holidays still at a low, it's likely staycations will get booked up quicker than ever, as demand peaks.

That means many regular caravanners could miss out on pitches at their favourite sites if they don't get themselves organised and secure a spot early.

While some people are looking forward to next summer, others are still hoping to salvage something of 2020.

A number of caravan parks have extended their season to welcome visitors right through half-term and in some cases up until the end of the year.

Anyone thinking of going away should take the restrictions in their local area into account, as well as those in the destination they're travelling to.

The rule of six, social distancing, wearing facemasks and regular hand washing should all be observed while on holiday to help prevent the spread of the virus.
