Advance family bookings have seen a 34% increase from last year for the summer season of 2010, there has also been a surprising and unprecedented surge of single travellers by a staggering 42% as more and more single travellers feeling comfortable and safe enough to continue on a holiday alone. Adding to this, some of the lesser known resorts such as Kas, Kalkan and Patara in Turkey have also seen a significant boost in the sales and bookings especially among travellers whose age group varies from 25 to 60. Adding to this, the launch of the virgin Mediterranean resort of Marsa Matrouh in Egypt located 200 km from Alexandria has peaked interest and predictions and industry insiders have slated it to be the next big holiday destination.
Christmas 2010 and New Year 2010-2011 has also seen a spectacular rise is advance bookings so people can secure their hotel choices early on and avoid the disappointment felt by many families leaving their holiday bookings too late. The traditional Spanish Costa and Canaries have taken a massive dip in interest as alternative holidays are becoming more mainstream as illustrated by the colossal rise of the two centre Nile Cruise and Red Sea holidays which have reported a raise in interest by 22% and in confirmed bookings, Gulet Cruises incorporating a more relaxed and informal cruise that travels between the coast of Turkey and the islands of Greece have also become increasingly popular as the daily varied itinerary appeals to almost everyone who loves the informal variety offered.
