The holiday late booking season is well under way and it’s been a busy start. There is no question however that our clients are being much more specific about the destinations that they do not want to travel to, which is hardly surprising after a number of recent “events” worldwide that have had an inevitable impact on visitor numbers.
We are also finding an increasing number of clients who are welcome to the suggestion of travelling further afield than they would normally. The Caribbean generally has seen a great deal of interest with Cuba and Mexico being the most popular choices.
This is not surprising as these destinations are not only regarded as offering something a little bit different to the traditional Caribbean islands but because there are some excellent value for money holidays available in superb quality hotels.
We have also seen a significant increase in demand for tailor-made itineraries to the USA with customers asking us to arrange two-centre and even three-centre holidays. This is often possible in North America due to the extensive network of flights between cities although the more adventurous are choosing to book Amtrak rail links between cities and do some sightseeing en-route.
As a Kuoni Partner Store we are well placed to cater for mixture of enquiries and more unusual requests. So why not put the extensive knowledge of our staff to the test.
