Travel experts say one in five Britons is planning to stay at home next year.
The estimate is double the number who took no foreign trips this year.
According to survey from travelsupermarket.com, in 2009, a total of 10 per cent took no breaks, but this figure is likely to increase to 18 per cent in 2010.
It also showed that those taking just one break away would increase from 26 per cent in 2009 to 33 per cent in 2010, with those taking two trips away rising from 26 per cent to 29 percent. The 'staycation' is likely to continue but Brits hoping for a value getaway will look to destinations outside the eurozone," the Telegraph quoted Bob Atkinson, from the website as saying.
Meanwhile, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco are predicted to be the most popular destinations in 2010.
The company is also forecasting a surge in visits to South Africa where the football World Cup is being staged in summer 2010 and also predicted that ski holidays could decline next year.
