For some travelers, especially those who frequently go abroad, a staycation might mean a holiday or vacation spent in their home country, as opposed to an international trip.

A staycation is sometimes known as a holistay, a portmanteau of holiday + stay. Both staycations and holistays are examples also of neologisms.
