Haven has reported online bookings almost doubled since launching Haven Hideaways in May, with the company employing an extra 500 staff to cope with increased demand.
The announcement follows the recent extension of the company’s holiday season to 30 November, and reflects a larger surge in UK holiday park popularity.
“Our 2020 and 2021 sales have been strong across all regions in the UK,” Haven director Gerard Tempest told The Mirror. “Since launching Haven Hideaway in May, we have seen web bookings increase by 96 percent over a one-week period.” “
Because of this, we know holidaymakers are still looking for the chance to safely get away during the pandemic and want to be able to provide that for as many people as possible.”
As VisitBritain reports that 51 percent of those who plan a summer holiday in the UK are “yet to book,” spaces are running out for those planning a holiday park getaway.
Parkdean Resorts’ 67 sites are sold out for the rest of August, with September “going in a similar direction,” and bookings for October up 54 percent on last year.
Meanwhile, Butlin’s has reported “record demand” for the rest of the year and the first half of 2021.
