HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Sept. 13, 2010) – Although the economy remains in crisis at the moment, families have been splashing out on holidaying in style, according to holiday operators, Haven Holidays.
The holiday group says that demand for its top of the range Platinum-grade accommodation hit a record high in the summer, with holidaymakers keen to give splash out on something extra special and treat themselves after a year of budgeting.
A spokesperson for Haven Holidays, commented: “Sales have soared in the summer, particularly for last minute weekend breaks which were up 15% compared with the same period last year.
“At the same time, however, demand for our top of the range Platinum-grade accommodation was up a whopping 35% – indicating that families will splash out if they perceive they’re getting good value.”
The luxury accommodation is beautifully furnished with spacious verandas or decking areas, flat screen TVs, double glazing, exclusive locations on the park as well as plenty of added extras, especially for platinum-grade holidaymakers.
Meanwhile, there is an array of special offers on weekend breaks available right throughout the year. These include fantastic accommodation, entertainment, restaurants and bars all thrown in for your convenience and at unbeatable prices.
The most popular regions for holidaymakers have proven to be Kent, Sussex and Dorset while campers and families or couples with touring caravans opted for Wales, Blackpool and Cumbria. The UK has become an extremely popular location for holidays recently, with airport delays and staff strikes causing people to look a little closer to home for breaks and discovering beautiful parts of Britain that they never even knew about.
Haven is Britain’s biggest family holiday company with 35 holiday parks offering high-quality self-catering accommodation and a wide range of sports and leisure facilities plus a full programme of entertainment. Therefore, people know they are a safe, reliable name in travel and they are also recognised as providing great value for money for family holidays.
However, they also provide a touch of luxury with total convenience, so you only have to turn up at one of their holiday parks and know that you will have every need provided for and at an affordable price.
This September, they have amazing offers on so it could be the perfect time to book a special break, as Haven pointed out: “Splashing out in style with Haven needn’t cost a fortune.
