Thousands of British tourists travel for cheap holiday deals to the Mediterranean every year. This rainy summer made the British leave England to find some sunlight outside. There were many great offers from tour operators as the demand was very high.
The best destinations that offer cheap holidays are the Greek islands, Cyprus, Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh, Tunisia, Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Spain, Portugal, Luxor, Maldives, Goa, Mexico, and Kenya, Caribbean and ski resorts such as Andorra, Sweden and others.
Travel-related sites also recorded record visits in June and July. "More people are booking their last-minute vacation. It is clear that bad weather is a factor this summer, but people are also more confident that they will get the best deals by leaving them late," says Brent Huberman, founder of lastminute.com. Spain is the most popular destination for last-minute reservations in search of the sun. Destinations like Turkey and Bulgaria offer better value for money. "Turkey has really been the biggest success story in recent years," says Tipton. "It has gone from about 100,000 visitors a year to over a million." (Annabelle Fallon, 2004, Independent on Sunday)
Greece is also one of the most popular destinations for British travelers. Greece attracts more than 16 million tourists annually. The country has been a magnet for international visitors due to its rich and long history, its beaches bordering the Mediterranean Sea, beaches, temperate climate and exquisite cuisine. There are a lot of cheap holiday offers to Greece from all British airports mainly to the Greek islands, the most famous of which are Crete, Rhodes, Corfu and Zante.
There are several ways to find cheap vacation deals flying from British airports. By the late 1950s and 1960s, cheap holidays emerged, which combined flights, transportation, and accommodation and provided the opportunity for the British people to travel often at reasonable rates. However, recently, an increasing number of travelers are avoiding tourist holidays and instead traveling with low-cost airlines such as Easy Jet, Ryan Air and BMI Baby and booking their own accommodations,
The need for the British people to escape at affordable prices and the growth of the Internet has changed the way travelers search for holidays. Many people are now home travel agents, and book their vacation directly from the Internet at better rates.
“Girard from Barnsley notes that she can save 800 pounds on a holiday by reserving herself and supporting her to give up the package because she knew it wouldn't be cheaper” (Marianne Loyke, 2005, BBC News).
Another revolution for the cheapest holidays is dynamic packaging. Thomson launched a concept called "dynamic packaging" where customers can book their flights and accommodation separately. This was a major change in the travel industry and encouraged the sale of all comprehensive cheap deals. There are many travel agents in the UK who offer dynamic packages mainly via internet and TV information channels. Yourholidays.com ltd is one of the trusted travel agents in Southern England. They offer all-inclusive cheap holidays, cheap accommodation only or flight deals only, city breaks, ski holidays across Europe, and long holidays at low prices.
