Last Minute Holidays abroad – now's the time to grab a deal says

May 26, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Ash cloud cancellations and delays, BA strikes, troubles in Greece… it's a difficult time for the travel industry at the moment, but actually a great time for holidaymakers to grab bargains on last minute holidays in the sun, says .

Says Emma Healey, Director "We are seeing lots of last minute holidays on the Holiday Holiday website right now departing in June, with some great savings of up to 50% on some holidays plus incentives such as 'kids go free' even on all inclusive holidays. If you are flexible on when you can travel and can hop on a plane in the next 4/5 weeks there are some excellent savings to be had right now".

Many last minute holidays are already becoming available as operators and airlines try to kick start bookings after the recent ash cloud hit holidays hard. Some June holidays have prices slashed to a couple of hundreds of pounds, making it easy for UK holidaymakers to get a cheap week away. This plus the additional fact that all travel agents advertising on the Holiday Holiday website must be ABTA and ATOL bonded has given consumers peace of mind when booking their holidays via the Holiday Holiday website.

June is traditionally a good month for booking last minute holidays, during the quiet period before the schools break for their summer holidays. Popular summer destinations such as Turkey, Spain, Canary Islands and the Balearics are high in demand this time of year. This year will see lots of last minute holidays and more demand for these destinations in particular especially as Greece, a summer staple of the British holidaymaker, seems more uncertain this year due to the troubles being experienced. However, the drop in tourism to Greece may make for some fantastic last minute holiday deals to some of the Greek Islands, away from the main problems in Athens, so don't rule it out.

Popular too are summer holidays, with families booking now for July and August in order to take advantage of offers currently available. Many are booking all inclusive holidays to keep budgets in control, some taking advantage of offers such as 'kids go free' being offered by some hotels and travel agents even across school holiday booking dates.

"I expect there to be even more last minute holidays available in the coming weeks" says Emma " with airlines and tour operators competing for holiday bookings after the last few months have seen a drop in people going abroad due to various reasons".
