With UK breaks booming this year and their popularity likely to continue in 2021, Jennifer Morris takes a look at quirky hotel offerings for clients considering a short break.
With so much back and forth around the government’s travel corridors and Foreign Office (FCDO) advice, it’s no surprise domestic breaks are popular this year, with enquiries up for UK and Ireland holidays. UK short breaks specialist Great Little Breaks – which only started selling through the trade late last year – says it has seen “unprecedented” demand from agents.
“Agents are seeing the UK as a safe bet with all the current uncertainty in the world and this is evident with the amount of bookings and enquires we are seeing at the moment,” says Chris Cundall, director of trade relations.
“Destinations such as the Lake District and Cotswolds are selling really well, but city centres such as Manchester and Edinburgh are seeing great demand too as customers get more confident eating out, shopping and sight-seeing.”
So if clients are thinking about taking a UK break this year or next, why not add a bit of fun by recommending a quirky hotel that suits their personality and passions?
