Online travel provider travelmatch.co.uk has found that British
travellers are increasingly focusing on value when booking their holidays. In
the past few years many families and individuals have saved money by
purchasing package trips to hotels like the Hotel Maxx Royal in Turkey,
and the Brayka Royal in Egypt.
travelmatch.co.uk based these conclusions on feedback from their
customers as many had gotten in contact expressly to find the best deals.
Sales figures also reflect this trend as people are increasingly opting to
book value options through the company's travel discovery engine.
Information from other sources in the travel world paint a similar
picture - most notably a report from Euromonitor International
(www.euromonitor.com/) shows that destinations like Turkey will
continue to be a significant draw, largely thanks to value deals.
Alex Francis of Travelmatch (www.travelmatch.co.uk/) comments:
"The recent economic downturn has affected us all, and it's quite clear that
people are willing to plan their trips on tight budgets - most Brits simply
don't have the funds to splash out on big flashy holidays. Thankfully, there
are so many excellent packages available that it is still possible to have a
great time without overspending."
Francis continues: "We expect British travellers to remain focused on
budget holidays even as the recession fades. Indeed, people have discovered
that it is possible to go to five star places like the Royal Holiday Palace
in Lara Beach (
on bargain packages, and they
won't want to return to more expensive options. Beyond that, British people
love to travel extensively and many of our customers try to stretch their
holiday budgets as far as possible so they can go on more than one trip a
year. Value packages have truly changed the way people look at travel."
Travelmatch is a new travel discovery engine that helps inspire customers
by matching their requirements to a wide range of holidays, hotels, flights,
cruises, villas or city breaks. Unlike other travel sites, customers are not
required to choose a destination, date or budget before they can begin
searching. Customers are able to make informed decisions by exploring photos,
user reviews, maps, events and activities and other fun things relevant to
their chosen travel product. www.travelmatch.co.uk/, which closed its
first funding round in 2010, is based in Notting Hill, London.
