The words ‘Double Dip’ and ‘the euro crisis’ have reared its head this year again thus creating uncertainty for travellers. More tourists are looking towards the developing tourist markets of Tunisia and Morocco as a diversion from the daily dose of dejection at home.
Travel Monster, as an up and coming impartial holiday merchant have seen a large increase of searches for tourists seeking holidays in Morocco and Tunisia, which has showed no indication of enquiries slowing since the early part of the year. Mrs. Jordan, Bookings Manager of Travel Monster, says: “Reaction since the start of the year from our clients reveals that they’re tired of hearing about the ‘Euro Crisis ’ and ‘Double Dip’, and need to escape the mundane routine of the daily dose of pessimism. The two week family holidays to the sun are an important part the annual life for UK citizens and they will not be given up easily, no matter what the economic controls on their budget.”
Travel Monster has seen tremendous growth for lower priced holidays outside the Euro Zone, where you can pick up a holiday as cheap, or if not cheaper on many occasions as anywhere in Europe, but the cost of living once there is a tremendous difference, meaning drink, food and entertainment. Where it may cost up to and over £2,000 for spending money in Europe you can see this cut in have for many holidays just outside Europe.
“Reaction from buyers tells they are disgruntled by confusing online deals and are seeking specialist guidance to aid their earnings to stretch two weeks and have enough for meals, drink and entertainment. This is one of the reasons why all inclusive holidays are proving a popular option.” Nevertheless, he cautions that the upsurge in all inclusive reservations may not be good news in the long term for resorts that rely on a steady flow of feet in the resort to keep their business afloat.
“This year has seen a continued increase of all inclusive holiday bookings, and expecting to increase this month again means that there could be a lack of late bookings this year. The Tunisia resorts and Morocco and Turkey are already selling fast and resorts in we can see other destinations are also in growing in demand. My advice to anyone seeking a holiday, do not leave it to the last minute, book now and you will avoid disappointment. We have some great holidays in July right now, but they are becoming harder to get as the days go by.”
