Just reg'd the name after the BBC did a snippet on "Staycationing" , any value ?
Yes, just as i was watching the same news - i thought somebodies just regd that.
Looks like the term has been picked-up but, it's not really being used at the moment. That said, It's certainly worth putting-up a nicely linked UK travel site just to see how it goes.
might turn out to be a little goldmine before the end of spring
I have heard it before but I think staycation/s is the term - your domain would be the equivilant of 'holidaying'
There are a number of “neologism” stay-cation, stacation, staykation, Staycation hit there peak around 2008 - 2009 in the states … There were even a few companies offering to do your entire cooking, cleaning etc but local attractions etc weren’t into advertising as there assumption was you’re already in the area you’ll no what’s there? . The target audience being people staying at home to save money doesn’t bode well?
No it means a holiday in the UK - as opposed to abroad
It's always been a big big market anyway.- I genuinely think it's about to get a lot bigger., for a multitude of reasons
Open to personal interpretation?
In the states main drive was the fuel increases ..
In the uk sort of being market adopted by 'holidays at home are great' campaign – launched by VisitEngland spin ..
Its been around in various forms starting with 1999 ? http://www.cruiseopinion.com/celebrityreviews/celebrity-mercury9.htm a few years ago "The Daily Show" trenchantly skewered the staycation as a cynical attempt to put a happy face on bleak economic conditions. calling it the holistay.. Didn't really take of in the states can't see it in the uk either?
Thanks , nice to get some history to the term. I agree I don't see any of the variations of the term staying around for long.
However, it is likely to get banded around for a while by the UK media - probably till the end of this summer. So A quick burn on the domain is all the holder can hope for in this particular variation
Thanks for the opinions, all seem valid in one way or another..........
Ah, all the old terms are disappearing and being replaced with these new made up words.
There was nothing at all wrong with the old "adayhereandthere"!
Separate names with a comma.
