From unique accommodation to scenic rail breaks, Abra Dunsby highlights product to recommend in the UK this year, along with selling tips
With international travel currently still uncertain for this summer, many clients may be considering their options and contemplating a UK break.
For clients who have managed to save money during the pandemic, a UK break could also make a nice addition to any international travel plans they have for later this year or in 2022.
Agents who haven’t sold many domestic holidays previously should turn their attention to this market to bring in vital revenue for this year and the years to come, says Claire Dutton, trade sales manager at The JG Travel Group.
“Last year, many people were unable to travel abroad and chose to holiday in the UK instead, travelling to places they had never visited before. So many of them will have had a fantastic holiday and I believe that, even if they decide to take a holiday abroad this year or next, they will also want to take at least one break in the UK as well. Travel agents really need to grab a slice of this lucrative market.”
Here we speak to the operators experiencing domestic sales growth for their tips on selling UK breaks and product recommendations.
