Online PR News – 24-May-2010 – – Co. Down, N. Ireland, (May 20, 2010) - ActivityBreaks, a leading independently operated provider of activity holidays across Europe, have seen a sharp increase in bookings for holidays that don't require customers to board a flight.
There have been a number of specific crises to hit airlines over the last few months, including strikes on major airlines such as British Airways and the more recent impact of the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud which has bullied European air space. As such the general public have decided to place their trust in short breaks and activity holidays local to the United Kingdom.
ActivityBreaks have seen a twenty-five per cent increase in requests for activity holidays which they feel is largely down to the flight chaos, but also by and large due to people's changing holiday habits as they look to get more value out of their breaks.
"You haven't been able to escape news of trouble with the airports lately, whether it's through causes of their own making such as the recent strikes or acts of God such as the ash cloud," comments Dearbhaile Mulholland of ActivityBreaks. "As a trend we've seen people start to ignore flight-based holidays altogether, instead choosing to stay closer to home or attend family-based active breaks. Luckily for those looking for a holiday that's different from the norm we have a large selection of activity holidays and short breaks here at ActivityBreaks, and can cater for every activity from horse riding through to kayaking."
