With thousands of people expected to be off work due to the strike, holiday companies are anticipating a surge in holiday related online activity. With dreary weather forecasted, a day at home provides the ideal opportunity to help the kids dig out the Christmas decorations, catch up on X Factor, write the Christmas cards, tidy the house, bake a cake and book next year’s holiday.
According to award winning cruise specialist Ideal Cruising, today will see an 80% year on year increase in holiday related online activity across the UK. With prices from as low as £699 per person for a twelve night cruise in the Canaries in January, many people will take advantage of late discounted deals over Christmas and January and early booking deals for the summer to book a real holiday treat.
Ideal Cruising was awarded ‘Best Cruise Retail Website’ at the 2011 Travolution Awards.
