The BBC is reporting on a sudden jump in summer holiday bookings from the over-50s this week, and here's why we think you need to join them:
- Right now is a very unusual sweet spot for holiday bookers -- travel companies are currently offering super-aggressive deals as they try to make up for the huge losses from last year. That means prices are very low for anyone who books now.
- But this window of opportunity is probably going to end soon -- once vaccines become available to more and more people, many of those people will do what older folks are doing the week and book a summer holiday. As demand goes through the roof, so will prices.
- It's one of the best times ever to book a trip as far as free cancellations and refunds go -- Nearly all UK hotel websites (booking.com, agoda, expedia, etc) now offer fully refundable options and airlines are too, with EasyJet, Ryanair and British Airways all offering free flight changes and refundable options (check Terms and Conditions). If you do have to cancel, it should be easier than ever.
Here are the best of the early-booking deals we're seeing this week:
- One of our favourites this week is this 3-nt package to Iceland that includes flights, hotel and free spa access.
- Want something relaxing? We'd recommend five nights in Rhodes with ultra-all-inclusive board.
- Take the family to Florida (right by Disney World® Resort) in June for some fun in the sunshine state
- Or stay local with a 4-night break to Somerset (dates in May, June and July)
