Haven Announce 10% Increase in 2012 Holidays

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 19, 2012) - Haven has seen an increase in bookings for 2012 holidays of 10% on 2011. In a recent survey three out of four families said they re-booked with us because the discounts offered real value for money. Last year was difficult for many British families and some say 2012 will be no different. With this in mind we at Haven have decided to keep thousands of prices at the same level as 2011, add to this our early booking offer means that families can get away this spring from just £79 per family. That's cheaper than the average day out at a theme park.

Haven advisor Lorraine Gray has been working for Haven for 20 years and has two kids herself. She says "Mums are the ones that tend to ring up and book and they tend to hold the purse strings! Of course they want to know what the best deal is but they also want to know what's included. No hidden extras. It's great that we can reassure them that they only have to pay a small deposit to secure the holiday and that they have time to pay us the balance. We don't charge any extra for paying on a credit card and when families get to the park the kids' clubs, activities and evening entertainment are all included in the price. They can also try out new things like fencing and archery for a small extra charge and of course staying in the UK means they also know how much a pint of beer costs!"

Here are Lorraine's top three tips for a value for money holiday:

• Choose a park that's an hour or so away - you'll save on petrol and avoid the "are we nearly there yet" cries from the back of the car.

• Take a few basics with you - all our parks have convenient stores just like your local corner shop at home so you can pick up fresh bread and milk each day.

• Book early - with Haven if you book before 31st Jan you will save the most money and are more likely to get your first choice of park and date. We have great half price caravan holidays for spring and you can save up to a third off summer holidays. What's more you only need to pay a £50 deposit now - just pay us your balance ten weeks before your holiday. Some families choose to pay us in instalments, we don't mind whatever is easiest. You can chat through the best options with one of our team.

UK breaks start from as little as £79 for four nights in spring and seven night holidays from under £500 for a family of up to six during the school summer holidays (based on 24 August at selected parks).
