Kingston, Surrey (PRWEB) February 13, 2010
Superbreak reports that as the credit crunch continues to affect couples wanting to tie the knot, one solution appears to be to save on the traditional overseas honeymoon, with a few days in the UK instead, now referred to as the 'mini-moon'.
Superbreak also found that there was a 15% increase in requests for upgrades to four-poster rooms (a common upgrade for honeymooners) in 2009 against 2008. In addition, it also showed a 5% decline year on year in airport/cruise port hotel stopovers booked by marrying couples, which would suggest that few people are choosing to travel overseas for their honeymoon.
Ian Mounser, Sales Director at Superbreak commented, "It seems that the mini-moon trend is actually taking off in the UK. With marrying couples increasingly conscious of expenditure, and seeking to save for their future, our analysis indicates that many couples appear to be more budget conscious and are choosing honeymoons of two to five nights duration, perhaps planning a full holiday in future years. As we head towards the key 2010 wedding season it will be interesting to see if this trend continues."
