Inghams has extended its summer 2022 price freeze through to the end of April owing to the ongoing lack of clarity from government on when travel might restart.
The operator initially froze its summer 2022 pricing at 2021 levels on bookings made by 12 April.
However, it has extended the offer to 30 April after the government offered "little clarity" in its travel taskforce announcement on the resumption of international travel late last week.
It means new customers can secure a summer 2022 holiday at 2021 pricing, while summer 2021 customers can move their holiday to 2022 while retaining the price they paid for their summer 2021 break.
Additionally, Inghams has moved final balance payments to four weeks prior to departure, with zero amendment feeds for moving a summer 2021 holiday back prior to the balance due date.
Joe Ponte, chief executive of Inghams parent Hotelplan UK, said: “Prior to last week’s government travel updates, 73% of Inghams summer 2021 bookings were for holidays taking place after 1 July, with 50% for 1 August 2021 onwards.
"We’re also seeing strong booking numbers for summer 2022, and high rebooking rates for those who originally had bookings for early summer 2021.
"We think it’s likely many people are responding to the government’s ongoing updates by planning ahead and booking flexible holidays for later this summer - or, for now, just securing holidays for next year until they have more information on the easing of summer 2021’s travel restrictions."
Head of agency sales Julie Franklin said the extended price freeze came ahead of the operator distributing its summer and Italy brochures to agents after agencies in parts of the UK were permitted to reopen their doors on Monday (12 April).
Holidays are available across a wide range of destinations on a £150pp deposit, including trips to Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Norway and Switzerland.
