Best ever January reported by Hoseasons
Hoseasons has been established over 70 years and have been providing excellent holiday accommodation, particularly in the self-catering field. Boating holidays were a big part of their early successes and now they can boast over 20,000 places to stay situated, these are situated in coastal, city, countryside settings as well as boating both in Britain as well as Europe.
Hoseasons have reported that they have had a record January, with booking to UK destinations up by 15% compared to last year. They have also reported that bookings through agents and other third parties are 10% up on last year at this time.
The southwest destinations have proved to be the biggest sellers and bookings to this region are an impressive 28% up over last January. Boating holidays are still very popular and breaks to rivers and canals up by a massive 36% and the Norfolk Broads, always a popular destination up by 20%, lodges and log cabins are also up by 16% over last year. Three separate days in January was a peak time for bookings with Hoseasons, they have put much of their success in early bookings down to the new and responsive website, plus the continuing popularity of UK breaks that the British holidaymaker loves so much, taking advantage of great places right on peoples’ doorstep.
Short domestic breaks for just a few days are increasing popular, and Hoseasons are continuing with their policy of investment across this popular sector.
