With the world turned upside down, it’s probably strange to even contemplate booking a getaway at this moment in time. But hear us out. Of course, none of us truly know when the travel ban might be lifted, but the UK lockdown could actually not only be the best time to book a holiday for the tail end of 2020 or early 2021, but also save you money, too. Here are three reasons why you should get something in the diary now…

There’s never been better value

Even though the act of booking a holiday has diminished for the time being, the interest in travel hasn’t. People are growing more eager, not only to leave their homes for an extended period of time post-lockdown, but also escape to a far-flung destination. With that in mind, many of the resorts and partners around the world we work with have pulled together some incredibly great value holiday deals, so you can secure your dream escape for less and before anyone else does. When the travel ban does get lifted, there is going to be one almighty rush to secure an overseas trip. Inevitably, hotel and flight prices will rise in line with the overwhelming demand. If you can stay ahead of the curve and book a trip during the UK lockdown, we are confident you will reap the benefits, both in terms of monetary saving but also without any added hassle. If you’re wondering if your money will be safe, if you book with us before 31st May, you’ll be entitled to a 100% refundable deposit.

Availability is at its best

Spring is typically the time when most people look to book their holidays for the forthcoming winter, or early the following winter. With the current uncertainty, that usual flurry of bookings isn’t happening in the same numbers. That means that availability for these timeframes is unusually excellent and you can take your pick from the room types at the resorts which have caught your eye! Of course, in ‘normal’ years we’d expect the availability to always good but 2020 sadly isn’t a normal year. Once the travel ban is lifted there will be fewer months for everyone to travel in and availability will decrease quickly, so it’s best to book now so you have the pick of the bunch!

You have the time to plan

When it comes to your holiday, planning is usually scattered across evenings or at the weekend. Now, the silver lining of the Coronavirus epidemic is that we have the luxury of time to plan our holidays in more detail and with more thought than perhaps we could before. You can plan that epic trip you’ve always dreamed of and, along with our team of experienced travel specialists, pencil in activities which will forge memories to last a lifetime. Another thing the lockdown has taught us is to value the time we spend with our loved ones, especially those we are not able to see right now. We’ve come to appreciate family time anew, so maybe it’s time to plan that multi-generational holiday you’ve always been putting off? Our travel specialists can help you plan that once-in-a-lifetime holiday.
