Holiday Bookings Surge after Lockdown Exit Plans
The leading Holiday companies have reported a ‘Holiday bookings surge’ in hours after Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s speech on the 22nd February 2021.
Holiday Bookings Surge
Holiday destinations, such as Spain and Greece have reported a surge in Holiday bookings after the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced his roadmap out of Lockdown and potentially resume Holidays both domestically and internationally by the 17th May 2021.
However, this is subject to review and assuming that cases and deaths continue to plumet, there isn’t a resurgence in the coronavirus, and the vaccination programme continues to go well.
Holiday bookings surge help push airline shares
The surge pushed shares in airlines and travel companies sharply higher on Tuesday. EasyJet and Tui were among the top risers on the FTSE 250, up 8% and 6% respectively. On the FTSE 100, British Airways’ owner International Airlines Group, was up 6%.
When can Caravan parks open?
Self-catered holidays will be possible from 12 April at the earliest, according to Boris Johnson’s roadmap, that’s including caravan staycations. Just like last year, caravan parks, camping holidays saw an increase in the so-called “Staycation” – a term known for allowing holidaymakers to book time off, without the risk of spreading the virus or allowing other variants of COVID-19 into the UK.
Throughout early lockdown, travelling or booking a holiday was banned in order to control the virus and stop the spread. It does look like staycations could be making another return in 2021 – however, with the 17th May looking more likely that tourists might be flocking to international beaches, we might want to start looking at taking the caravan to beautiful coastlines such as, Whitby, Filey, and Scarborough.
