Tunbridge Wells, Kent (PRWEB) June 28, 2011
Until recently Gambia was a more traditional winter sun destination for British holidaymakers. However, this is certainly no longer the case with more and more UK tour operators such as Packyourbags.com promoting Gambia as a great year round holiday location given its appealing tropical climate and 50 miles of coastline.
It is not just Packyourbags.com who is experiencing a healthy upturn in business to Gambia. Research recently published by Visa Europe shows Gambia in fourth place in their top ten emerging destinations list; this is a list based on increases in spend on British holidaymakers’ Visa cards whilst travelling overseas.
Packyourbags.com features a fantastic range of Gambia package holidays on its website. What makes Packyourbags.com unique is the site’s ability to perform a simple search and comparison of all UK tour operators selling holidays to the Gambia and then provides customers with a choice of the best available deals.
It is through the relationships Packyourbags.com has with various tours operators such as The Gambia Experience and The Gambia National Tourist Office that it has been able to react so quickly and increase its commitments to meet the new levels of demand throughout the year.
Packyourbags.com’s Managing Director Mark Kempster commented, “It is really interesting to see our increase in bookings to Gambia mirroring Visa Europe’s research. Not only is this the case for Gambia, but Sri Lanka also made it into Visa Europe’s top ten emerging destinations in ninth place. This is also a pattern we’re starting to notice which is fantastic news for the British holidaymaker now that Sri Lanka is experiencing more peaceful times and subsequently more areas of the island are becoming great places for tourists to visit.”
Packyourbags.com is regarded as one of the UK’s leading online travel agents for offering cheap holidays to many destinations including the usual popular hotspots such as Spain holidays and Turkey holidays.
