Easter Bookings Up As Brits Look to 'Eggscape' Gloom!

Extra GBP 10 discount for bookings made on March 18/19

WOKING, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 18, 2013) - Holiday Autos reports that it is seeing significant numbers of bookings to sunny and ski destinations for Easter 2013. Historically, Easter is the time when the warmer European and Long Haul hot spots begin to top the lists of popular destinations, but bookings for Ski resorts are also holding up at a time when they usually begin to tail off.

Kevin Currie, Global Digital Marketing Director of Holiday Autos, comments - "There's still a lot of uncertainty and discussion around the impact of the economy on holidays and travel, but in spite of this, we're still seeing bookings for Easter which are ahead of our own forecasts."

Currie also revealed that those who still haven't decided where to jet off this Easter can take advantage of a limited offer - £10 off last minute Easter getaways.

To get the discount, holidaymakers can enter the voucher code EASTERTREAT10 on bookings of £150 or more made on March 18/19 only, for pick-ups between March 25 - April 7 2013. The opportunity to enter the code is presented on Section 6 of the booking process and is applicable to new orders only.

The offer is also subject to availability and so Holiday Autos has encouraged everyone to sign up to deal as soon as possible - especially with so many unforeseen getaways getting booked this Easter.

Meanwhile, the BBC and Met Office have forecasted* 'cool and unsettled conditions' over Eastertime, meaning the likelihood of family 'staycationing' could further diminish, while bookings abroad go on the up. Over two inches of snow fell in the Southeast last week and the UK is currently experiencing its most frostbitten March in three decades.

It was only in 2011 our Easter eggs we're melting under highs of 17°C this time of year and so it just goes to show how dramatically the British climate can change. As a result, the 2013 trend to get abroad over Easter could become the yearly norm and the appeal is only heightened with the likes of Holiday Autos offering vacationers money off car rental.
