Eurocamp Even Greater Value For Money Following French VAT Cut And Summer Deals
July 15, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsWith the price of eating out in France set to fall as government tax cuts take effect – not to mention discounts of up to 30% on summer school breaks – Eurocamp holidays are an even more affordable option this summer.
So although its accommodation comes fully-equipped with self catering facilities – for the utmost enjoyment of barbecues and alfresco dining – holidaymakers can now indulge in delicious local cuisine on parc or at nearby restaurants at a much reduced cost.
This recent money-saving move by the French government makes Eurocamp Camping holidays even more appealing – especially in the current economic climate – and gives customers even greater flexibility when matching their summer getaways to their budgets.
From fully equipped tents to luxury mobile homes - which can be booked for anything from a three day short break, to longer stays over a number of weeks - a tailor-made Eurocamp holiday itinerary is easy to prepare. Free mid-week ferry crossings plus any day arrivals and departures also make it easier to take advantage of the best travel deals around.
And holiday spends can be further reduced by utilising Eurocamp's complimentary Kids' Clubs, great swimming pool complexes and high standard of free activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Eurocamp's Chris Hilton says: "This is great news for couples or families wishing to hop across the channel and enjoy a holiday in France, as their money should now go much further.
"It's estimated* that 80% of restaurants will pass on the VAT reductions - from 19.6% to 5.5% - which will of course make France an even more appealing holiday destination this summer. It's already a favourite amongst Eurocampers – we have 88 parcs there – and the recent announcement from the French government is already having impacting on our booking numbers."
