Brits last-minute holiday bargain hunters during Olympics
June 21st, 2012 by elisa

Nearly one in five Britons is planning to go on holiday during the Olympics, with over half yet to even book, according to data released by Amadeus.

Of the 2,000 adults questioned, 19% are planning to travel between 27th July and 12th August, either in the UK or abroad, with just under half of them still to book. The reason so many are holding off booking is because they are hoping for a last-minute holiday bargain.

A quarter of participants also said that a reduction in the cost of a trip would encourage them to go on holiday.

Diane Bouzebiba, managing director of Amadeus, UK and Ireland, said: “Whilst the Games undoubtedly present a very exciting prospect for lot of people, our survey shows that there are also plenty who are looking to get away – and nearly half of those haven’t yet booked their holiday.

“With our data also revealing the huge appetite amongst the public for deals on travel, the Olympics clearly present a huge opportunity for travel agents in the UK.”
