As the summer season winds down Holiday Mate reflects on this years Turkey holiday trends that have seen the rise (and sporadic fall) of bookings for holidays to Turkey.
The No.1 Turkey holiday specialist has noticed a number of trends this year, here are few highlights from recent findings:
Holidaymakers have chosen to book last minute holidays to Turkey.
Many have booked holidays later in the year due to not wanting to miss out on the UK Jubilee and this summer’s amazing Olympic celebrations.
All inclusive holidays have increased in popularity in 2012 as they offer added value in the current economy.
On a more global scale the Olympic Games had a massive impact on the movement of travellers and holiday bookings, as the world was transfixed by the mega sports fest.
Brits also stayed at home to bask in the beautiful game and watch Euro 2012 from the comfort of their own homes or the local pubs.
This month (October) searches on the www.holidaymate.com website have shown that many families have chosen to book all inclusive holidays to Turkey which offer value for money as meals, entertainment and kids clubs are all part of the all inclusive price tag.
Holiday Mate has also revealed its best selling 2012 holiday resorts are as follows:
Holidays in Marmaris
Located on the coast between two sets of mountains it has many beautiful coves and bays making it a favourite for yacht charter cruises along the Aegean and Mediterranean.
Marmaris is known for its lively nightlife and rightly so as it home to many lively nightspots. But is also has quieter hangouts that will appeal to older holidaymakers and families looking to jet out to the sun.
Holidays in Hisaronu
Holidays in Hisaronu offer a wide choice of bars, cafes and restaurants that offer a great choice of cuisine and entertainment. Hisaronu is one of the liveliest resorts set in the south west of Turkey near the famous Oludeniz beach. This bustling resort offers something for everyone. Many of the bars have outside seating, garden areas and provide evening entertainment. There is also a small fairground and go karts to keep the younger members of the family entertained too.
Holidays in Oludeniz
Holidays in Oludeniz offer an uber cool and relaxing environment for couples and families looking to get away from it all. This world famous resort is also home to one of the most photographed beaches in the world.
2013 Oludeniz beach holidays offer visitors the chance to sample the clear still waters and marvel at blue lagoon.
The beach front restaurants and cafes offer spectacular sunset views and a wide variety of food from seafood to kebabs to fast food.
Oludeniz beach is also fast becoming an increasingly popular venue for Turkey weddings too.
Other popular half term holiday hotspots include the Canary Islands, Rome and Spain. However, cheap holidays to Turkey offer more benefits than many other holiday destinations.
A major plus point is the fact that Turkey is outside the euro zone.
So evenings dining out or those spent enjoying entertainment cost less than they would in many other European holiday holiday destinations.
A Holiday Mate spokesperson said:
‘After what has been a packed summer of events many families have delayed booking a summer getaway, perhaps hoping to enjoy some sunshine in the UK.
‘But the UK weather has not produced that much sunshine this year, so it is not surprising that many families are now looking to get away this October for their best chance of some sun before Christmas.’
Those not travelling with children of school age may wish to look at booking last minute holidays to Turkey in late October or early November.
