Grand UK Holidays, the Norwich based escorted holiday specialist, has discovered that 90% of its customer base don’t feel that it is currently safe to travel abroad in 2021. What’s more 53% said they still wouldn’t feel safe travelling abroad in 2022.
Sales and Marketing Manager, Sally Hubble-Button, says ‘In a recent survey we conducted, the majority of our customers told us that they would feel more confident holidaying in the UK than going further afield, given the current global climate. Grand UK Holidays specialises in escorted coach holidays for the mature traveller, and whilst our customers have expressed their desire to finally be able to take a holiday, the majority want to keep within the British Isles.
Recently we have seen an increase in bookings, with 52% of those surveyed already having booked at least one holiday with us departing in 2021. It’s been a difficult year for everyone, and I think we are craving some normality and to be allowed to do the things we love again, such as go on holiday. The demand is clearly there as our bookings demonstrate, and our customers are looking forward to getting away as soon as they can, as long as they can do so within the UK.
We’ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes creating an amazing collection of UK escorted coach holidays and we can’t wait for our brand new brochure to land in a couple of weeks, packed to the brim with exciting new holidays! It’s been really positive these last few weeks, seeing familiar faces slowly coming back into the office to make sure we are ready to go as of May 17th! ’
Travel and hospitality sectors have been the worst hit during this pandemic, with the majority of these businesses relying on the Government Furlough scheme in order to survive. Now that the road-map is in place to open the country up again as of the 21st of June, and with UK holidays being allowed as soon as 17th May, the sector is poised for a bounce-back. Grand UK Holidays is fully ABTA bonded and is one of the country’s largest privately owned travel businesses having carried over one million people on holiday since it was founded in 1983.
