The recent announcements relating to the reopening of borders and easing of lockdown measures in holiday destinations around the world has left most travel-enthusiastic folk excited at the prospect of their next trip overseas.
If you’re still unsure whether to get that latest break all booked, we’ve picked out five of the top reasons why you should do so right now…
In terms of the largest variety of choice of departure dates, flight times, hotels and more, now is the time to take advantage. At this moment, availability is good and you can choose exactly what you want, though as more and more borders begin to open up and preventative measures perhaps ease even more so, demand is set to only increase.
So avoid the mad rush later down the line and get your jolly sorted now, it’s the best way to ensure the best choice, not to mention the fact it gives you peace of mind that your trip is all sorted.
It’s no secret that the travel sector has been impacted as much as any during recent months, with airlines, hotels and travel agents unable to operate because of the various restrictions. It’s within all of their interests to try and reignite the holiday fire amongst potential travellers, which is why you’ll find prices set very competitively as the industry starts to get back going again.
Take advantage of the chance to potentially save some pennies now, and add the money you’ll surely pocket to your holiday kitty for some extra drinks at the airport, experiences whilst you’re away or souvenirs to bring home.
The last few months have been tough for most, with long days stuck inside, unable to meet up with friends and family and generally being a bit slow and boring. A holiday can change all that however, it gives the mind something to focus on, a date to prepare your beach body for and an opportunity to get away from the recent times of staying indoors.
We all know a well-earned break can be great for your state of mind, and having that focus of a date in the future to aim for could be exactly what the doctor ordered.
The truth is that it’s been relatively easy to save money since lockdown as we’ve all been forced to spend less on things like filling up our cars with petrol, going out for food or drinks with friends and other usual necessities such as getting our haircut. With that in mind, you’ve kind of already been saving a little over the last four months or so, and what better to spend it on than the holiday you deserve?
You’ve probably been able to set aside enough for a little city break abroad, maybe some to put towards a week-long beach break, or at least money for your deposit. One of the plus sides of lockdown is that we’ve all been forced to spend less on things we’d normally spend more on!
We’ve had some decent little spells of sunshine in the UK since the period of staying home came into force, but as we all know, it takes a brave person to rely on any sustained periods of heat in this country. Now more than ever we all need the chance to soak up some sun with a drink in hand by the sea and sand, so get that next beach break book before you miss out!
It’s either that, or back garden barbecues in the pouring rain…..we know which we’d prefer!
