Are you still on the hunt for this summer’s getaway? Sometimes it’s hard to decide where to go, and it seems that everyone has their own opinions on each and every destination. That’s where our Holiday Report comes in. It gives us a general feeling of what you (our amazing UK holidaymakers) are thinking about where to go. So, let’s take a look at what’s on this summer’s hot list…
All Inclusive holidays
As a result of the weak pound, All Inclusive holidays are falling into favour more than ever before. With the price of flights, hotel, food and drink already sorted and paid for before you jet-off, there’s less to worry about in terms of an unsteady exchange rate, as you won’t need as much cash. A staggering 61% of us will go All Inclusive, for peace of mind and bottomless piña coladas, of course. I’ll cheers to that!
One trend that’s really stood out this year is the shift towards non-European destinations. Almost half (43%) of holidaymakers said they’d be more likely to travel outside of the EU compared to the last couple of years. And, nearly a whopping half of all of our package holidays are to locations that don’t have the Euro. But, why? A lot of it’s to do with the weakness of the pound against the euro and us wanting more for our money with exchange rates. This is also reflected in the popularity of Turkey… it’s now our second most popular destination!
North African adventures
The typical family holiday used to revolve around the pool, with many of us not leaving the comfort of the resort. But now, we’re branching out and want the kids to explore the wonders of the world! North African countries such as Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco are packed with ancient history, endless activities and dramatic landscapes. So this year, maybe it’s time to swap the swimming pool for souks and the ‘del Sols’ for the desert. Want to find out more? Browse our full Holiday Report below.
