Specialist cheap holidays operator Packyourbags.com has identified many of its 2011 holidays on sale through its website are cheaper than in 2010.
Packyourbags.com is once again bucking industry trends as it announces customers purchasing 2011 holidays on its website are gaining greater savings compared to taking the same holiday last year.
e-tid.com formally known as the Travel Industry Digest recently published an article detailing the latest figures from the IMRG Capgemini e-Retail Sales Index, which showed the average price paid for an online travel purchase in May 2011 was £869, compared with £669 in May 2010.
However, Packyourbags.com reports the average adult cost for a week’s holiday booking through their site was £335 per person in 2010, compared with £319 per person in 2011. This is fantastic news for the consumer, and also re-affirms the company’s position as one of the UK’s leading online retailers for cheap package holidays to the Mediterranean and beyond.
Mark Kempster, Packyourbags.com’s Managing Director commented, “Whilst we’re still trading in a tough economic times, its encouraging to see if consumers do take the time to shop around for an overseas holiday, there are great deals to be had. In fact it has probably never been such a good time to take a holiday, as there’s good availability to many of the popular destinations through the summer holiday period, with plenty of last minute holidays on offer. In addition, if taking a holiday in 2011 is not possible, most tour operators are now selling holidays for summer 2012 that offer fantastic early booking discounts alongside low booking deposits, making it easier for people to budget and pay for their holiday over a greater period of time”.
