Holiday Mate Reveals 2012 Turkey Holiday Trend News


As the summer season winds down, Holiday Mate reflects on this year's Turkey holiday trends that have seen the rise (and sporadic fall) of bookings for holidays to Turkey. The No.1 Turkey holiday specialist has noticed a number of trends this year, here are some of the highlights of Holiday Mates recent findings:

(PRWEB) October 24, 2012

•    Holidaymakers have chosen to book last minute holidays to Turkey vs booking holidays in advance.

  •     Many have booked holidays later in the year due to not wanting to miss out on the UK's Jubilee celebrations and the World Olympic Games.
  •     All inclusive holidays have increased in popularity in 2012 as they offer added value in the current economy.

The UK summer was dominated by the Queens Jubilee Celebrations and Euro 2012 action.
Many British tourists chose to delay holidays abroad so as not miss out on the masses of streets parties and football action.

The delay in bookings for Turkey holidays caused the season to get off to a slower than usual start.

On a more global scale the World Olympic Games also had a massive impact on the movement of travellers as the world was transfixed by Olympic action.

This month (October) searches on the website have shown that many families have chosen to book all inclusive holidays to Turkey which offer value for money as meals, entertainment and kids clubs are all part of the all inclusive price tag.

Holiday Mate has also revealed it's best selling 2012 holiday resorts as follows:

Holidays in Marmaris
Located on the coast between two sets of mountains it has many beautiful coves and bays making it a great choice for yacht charter cruises along the Aegean and Mediterranean.

Marmaris is known for its lively nightlife and rightly so as it home to many lively nightspots. But is also has many quieter hangouts that will appeal to older holidaymakers and families looking to relax and unwind.

Holidays in Hisaronu
Holidays in Hisaronu offer a wide choice of bars, cafes and restaurants that offer a great choice of cuisine and entertainment. Hisaronu is one of the liveliest resorts set in the south west of Turkey near the famous Oludeniz beach. This bustling resort offers something for everyone. Many of the bars have outside seating, garden areas and evening entertainment. There is also a small fairground and go karts to keep the younger members of the family entertained too.

Holidays in Oludeniz
Holidays in Oludeniz offer an uber cool and relaxing environment for couples and families looking to get away from it all. This world famous resort is also home to one of the most photographed beaches in the world.

Those who choose to stay in Oludeniz are sure to be mesmerized by the clear blue waters, the Blue Lagoon and the dramatic sunsets.

The beach front restaurants and cafes offer more spectacular views and a wide variety of food from seafood to kebabs to fast food. Oludeniz beach is also fast becoming an increasingly popular venue for Turkey Weddings too.

Other popular half term holiday hotspots include the Canary Islands, Rome and Spain. However, cheap holidays to Turkey offer more benefits than many other holiday destinations.

A major plus point is the fact that Turkey is outside the euro zone. So evenings dining out or those spent enjoying entertainment cost less than they would in many other European holiday hotspots.

A Holiday Mate spokesperson said:

‘Our most recent spate of bookings show that many families are now looking to get away this October for their best chance of some sun before Christmas.'
