ST. ALBANS, England, October 7, 2010 - Villa Plus has announced that at a time when other villa operators are
increasing their terms, it will be reducing its booking deposit requirement
to 10% for villa only bookings or GBP100 per person for package holiday

In a fragile economy, where big ticket items like holidays can seem
expensive, Villa Plus wanted to make it easier for customers to book their
holiday early, yet still get value for money. So, in contrast to other villa
operators, the company has decided to decrease the amount customers are
required to pay when they book their holiday.

"We wanted to make it easier for our customers, many of whom are
families, to book their holiday early and secure their favourite villa. We're
hoping the lower booking deposit ( will help our
customers to budget if they need to", commented Nick Cooper, Villa Plus
director and founder.

This won't be the first time Villa Plus has thought differently. As tour
operators struggled last year, Villa Plus rebranded and made significant
improvements to its website which lead to a widespread sales increase for
2010. This has helped place Villa Plus in a strong financial position for
2011, ultimately enabling it to reduce the booking deposits against the
general trend.

Notes to editors:

*Some airlines may charge full fare up front, so prices may vary
depending on airline chosen. Also, package holiday deposits are subject to an
additional statutory ATOL contribution of GBP2.50 per person.
