I was concerned that the disappointing Summer, combined with concerns about the economy, could mean that bookings would slow down substantially. However the public have proved themselves to be far from fickle over their love of Devon and Cornwall. At this rate the West Country will definitely be the place to be in 2009.
Ferndale, WA (Vocus) December 31, 2008
Leading West Country holiday letting company Blue Chip Vacations reports that neither the disappointing Summer, nor the much discussed 'credit crunch' have dampened the enthusiasm of the British public for holidaying in the West Country. The company is already reporting a 65% increase on bookings for holidays in Devon and Cornwall in 2009, compared to the same period a year ago.
Blue Chip Vacations represents around 500 handpicked 4 & 5 star self catering holiday properties across the West Country. Each property has been chosen for its stunning location, amazing coastal or rural views or hi-spec interior. Properties are reviewed each year to ensure they meet the high standard set not only by Blue Chip Vacations, but also by Quality in Tourism.
Managing Director, Liam Gavin comments, "I was concerned that the disappointing Summer, combined with concerns about the economy, could mean that bookings would slow down substantially. However the public have proved themselves to be far from fickle over their love of Devon and Cornwall. At this rate the West Country will definitely be the place to be in 2009."
"We are privileged, at Blue Chip Vacations, to represent some spectacular holiday properties in the most picturesque parts of the region.
