Increase In Demand For Holiday Deals As Summer Is Officially Over

Gloucester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 24, 2009 -- MyVoucherCodes has seen an increase in users searching for late holiday deals and discount voucher codes, as hundreds of people in the UK look to get abroad and enjoy a bit of warm weather, after yet another disappointing British Summer.

Although Brits were promised heat waves aplenty this year, warm weather was sporadic to say the least. This has caused a surge in the amount of people starting to search for late holiday deals and has seen a 63% increase in people searching for travel related discount codes and bargains.

The site has experienced a large number of visitors searching for the term “cheap flights” and “winter breaks” over the last two weeks and the peak holiday discount hunting time seems to be between 6pm and 9pm on weekdays, when people have finished work.

MyVoucherCodes currently has a number of holiday and travel discounts from Expedia and Thomson and the best offers include up to £500 off family breaks with Virgin Holidays.

Speaking about the sudden increase in demand for late holiday deals, Mark Pearson, Managing Director of MyVoucherCodes said;

“The short-lived summer has obviously had an effect on Britons this year, as more and more people are looking to get away in October and November with the help of the voucher codes and cheap flight deals available on the site.

He continued, “Late in the year is always a better time to get away, as breaks are almost always cheaper. We always see an influx of holiday codes after the official school summer holidays end, so now is definitely the time to be thinking about searching for a bargain.”
