When do you book your holidays?
Are you a do it at the last minute type? I have to say I am. I rarely book in advance.
Why? Well, I am always looking for a great deal and this often results in us looking for a holiday at the last minute.
Apparently, I am not alone with this, Google report last-minute holiday bookings are on the rise. In fact, they are up 269% month on month! Years ago I remember searching for last-minute bargain holidays via Teletext and waiting for the TV to scroll through hundreds of options. Do you remember that? Oh, how times have changed!
With my kids in school just going off last minute isn’t an all year option but even in the school holidays, it is very possible to bag a brilliant last-minute deal.
So, where do folk go on their last-minute holidays? We usually look for the sunshine and a great beach but for many people, a city break is the desired option.
Have you ever wondered what impacts out holiday choice the most? Is it family size, the holidays of our childhood or could it possibly be down to where you currently live?
I know that sounds a bit random but there really is a correlation between where you live and where you go on holiday! LoveHolidays, the leading online travel website has been analysing their last minute booking data and it seems that your location absolutely does impact the location you go to on your last-minute holiday
This seems bizarre to me! I am sure there must reasons and explanations as to the WHY of these correlations but whatever the explanation the facts are clear and the results are in!
Norfolk Travel Trends
So where do you think folk form Norfolk most likely to go on their last-minute holiday?
Well, thanks to LoveHolidays interactive tool I can tell you! It’s the stunning island of Cyprus (what a great choice!) People from Norfolk are least likely to book a holiday to Croatia. (Hmm… I have no idea why this is the case but isn’t that just fascinating?)
Londoners apparently favour long-haul destinations like St Lucia, Sri Lanka and Jamaica – could this be due to greater wealth in London or maybe the stresses of city life mean that those that live there really need to get far away!
