by Jessica Pook
One in four Brits have already booked a new flight or holiday for when the coronavirus crisis is over, Holiday Extras has revealed.
Its poll revealed that holidaymakers in the UK are confident that ‘normal service’ will resume soon, with 75% believing that they will take a holiday this year.
It also highlighted that 23% of those who have travelled within the last three months were keen to get away as soon as the government deems it safe.
The research was compiled following news that airlines including Jet2.com and easyJet havelaunched their winter 2020/21 flight schedules early.
Seamus McCauley at Holiday Extras commented: “Airlines bringing their winter schedules forward so that people can book now is sensible for those looking ahead to the end of the current crisis. It also gives everyone something to look forward to. I expect the first thing people will want to do when all of this is over, is hop on a plane and get right back to seeing the world.”
"Holiday Extras is offering helpful, flexible booking options that include free cancellation in case plans need to change. We have also just launched a brand-new special offer: buy airport parking or an airport lounge and we''ll give you £10 of free holiday spending money on a Caxton currency card, to use in one of 14 currencies of your choice".
