Cheap Holidays on the Horizon by:Olivia Wilson
In the press this week it was revealed that for the first quarter
, the number of trips abroad that have been booked has fallen again, no big surprise. With the big firms reported ten to fifteen per cent drops in customer bookings.
Holiday companies have cut capacities in anticipation of the drop in number of bookings. While there are locations that are on target to fill capacity such as locations outside the Euro zone, Turkey and Egypt for example, some holiday destinations, especially European holidays have seen low uptakes.
Spain, Portugal, Greece and the Canaries are predicted to be heavily hit by the downturn and this is where despite very poor exchange rates, fantastic holiday deals may lie. Yes many companies are saying they have been heavily hit and millions of rooms and beds are set to be heavily discounted to encourage uptake, Spain is probably going to the worst affected so you may see the best bargains there.
To find cheap holidays this year there is this option of holding off for these hopeful big discounts, especially if you want a holiday within the Euro zone. However why not consider the many fantastic destinations that offer great value outside of Europe. How about Bulgaria, you can experience the rich culture, landscapes and relax on the beautiful beaches. This country is proving to be very popular, grab it before the deals are all gone. One very cheap location is Thailand, the Baht has strengthened against the pound however Thailand is a very cheap place, and you can have a delicious dinner for only a few pounds.
Morocco is another suggestion. There you will find a lively upbeat place with many things going on, cool new sounds and an amazing array of smells. You can also enjoy the fantastic beaches, stunning scenery. Good value holiday that won't mean cause a huge dent in your wallet.
Whatever you decide to go for, continue to monitor the press, for the latest deals check online travel websites and comparison sites to search for the greatest value deals to help you find your cheap holidays in 2009.
