Heatwave hits summer bookings

Hi … I thought you’d be interested to know about some unusual deals in July and August this year. It’s rare to see price reductions of 33% or more during peak season, and it might be because of the heatwave we are all experiencing in the UK. Hot temperatures at home typically result in a drop in overseas holiday bookings. Scroll down for details.
