Our clients used to holiday with us three or more times a year but that decreased during the recession and the three short-breaks became one long-break in a warm destination.
(PRWEB UK) 19 February 2013
Golfholidays.com – home to Golfplanet and French Golf Holidays – has seen a surge in bookings for Spring breaks and also an increase in the number of holidays clients are booking.
“Our clients used to holiday with us three or more times a year but that decreased during the recession and the three short-breaks became one long-break in a warm destination. Now, we can see that clients are still wanting the sunshine but they are also taking one or two short breaks to our long-standing “classy” destinations such as the South of France, Italy and Morocco” says Morgan Clarke, Managing Director of golfholidays.com
“Budgets have also increased but that’s almost a certainty because flight costs have gone up as airlines have reduced their stock, their schedule and their routes. And whilst clients are willing to sacrifice a little on the quality of hotel, the quality of the golf is sacrosanct. And our ultra high-end programme, Bond Street Golf, is doing terrifically well. So much so that it was voted “World’s Best Golf Trip Agent” by the Shanghai Travellers’ Club".
So what are the resorts which are working wonders? Tuscany is doing well – Poggio dei Medici and the Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees on Lake Maggiore appeal to the discerning client. Royal Mougins just outside Cannes is at long last getting the attention it deserves and the better hotels on the Canary Islands like Abama, La Residencia and Jardin Tropical received a lot of clients during the winter.
"Our choice is always increasing and that will continue with our ever-increasing number of API links. So we’re combining choice and variety but still ensuring the quality according to what we believe our clients want…Holidays that are full of value rather than just being cheap".
