Ibiza holiday sales are soaring in the run-up to August as British clubbers book late for BBC Radio 1’s Weekend in Ibiza 2010, says dealchecker.co.uk.


What with university and school terms coming to a close, late July and early August always sees a mad dash for Ibiza

BBC Radio 1 is to celebrate its 15th year broadcasting live from Ibiza with a series of parties and exclusive broadcasts starting 6 August - traditionally the busiest weekend of the season. And as with every year, Ibiza holiday sales have spiked in July for those first two weeks in August. “What with university and school terms coming to a close, late July and early August always sees a mad dash for Ibiza,” says Alex Saint, Managing Director of leading holiday portal dealchecker.co.uk. “We’re only halfway through the month and already we’ve seen a boost in sales for products like our range of cheap holidays to Ibiza, with many bookings falling on the BBC Radio 1 weekend. But then, in our experience, clubbers always leave things to the last minute!”

“Historically, July has been the peak period for holidaymakers to make late bookings,” continues Saint. “They are typically looking to warmer climes, so breaks in Ibiza, or last-minute cheap holidays in Spain are ideal.”

The weekend kicks off on Thursday 5 August when Grandmaster Flash, Mark Ronson and Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe hit Come Together at Space. Then on Friday 6 August Annie Mac, Pete Tong and some special guests will be broadcasting live from the Ibiza Rocks Hotel at one of the biggest outdoor parties on the White Isle, while Saturday 7 August sees Trevor Nelson and Judge Jules hitting the decks at the hotel.

Then on Saturday there’s an exclusive Cream night taking place at the world’s largest club Privilege, featuring an enviable number of DJs, including Underworld, Above & Beyond, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Judge Jules, Kissy Sell Out, The Japanese Popstars, Jaguar Skills, Alex Metric, Jaymo & Andy George, Kutski and Gareth Wyn. BBC Radio 1 will broadcast performances from the show in a special extended Essential Mix.

But if all night partying isn’t your idea of a relaxing holiday, dealchecker.co.uk feature a huge range of deals, including luxurious resort-based Tenerife holidays starting as low as £117 per person for seven nights.
