Daish’s Holidays sees late bookings soar
Hotel chain and coach company, Daish’s Holidays, has reported a surge in late bookings for summer 2022. It has had a 5% increase for July and 12% rise for August, compared to the same period in 2021.
The company cites airport strikes and looming overseas travel disruption as reasons behind holidaymakers’ decisions to sped the summer season on domestic shores.
The company currently has a number of deals available for its breaks, including a five-day stay at its Blackpool hotel (including coach travel) for £189, representing a £135 saving from the original price.
“We are experiencing a spike in bookings as holidaymakers heed the warnings from industry experts concerning the strike action across Europe” – Paul Harper, Commercial Director at Daish’s Holidays
Paul Harper, Commercial Director at Daish’s Holidays, said: “July and August in 2021 was a record year high for bookings and this year is surpassing this. We are experiencing a spike in bookings as holidaymakers heed the warnings from industry experts concerning the strike action across Europe, which may cause overseas travel conditions to worsen as we come into the peak summer season.
“The summer holiday is a valued break for Britons, for many it’s their only holiday all year. The idea of this being cancelled last minute through conditions out of their control is devastating. We are delighted that so many are looking to us as a solution to this holiday crisis and we look forward to providing our visitors with a welcome respite from the travel chaos.”
Daish’s Holidays is a family-owned and operated business that acquired Robinsons Holidays in November 2020. In addition, the company acquired a fleet of 13 coaches, that operates from a range of pick-up locations in the north-west including Cumbria, Cheshire and Lancashire.
Daish’s Holidays offers customers the choice between coach drive or self-drive options across England and Wales.
