Olympic Holidays to extend Black Friday offers

Olympic Holidays has announced that they are going to extend their Black Friday sale until December 7 to allow their trade partners to take advantage of the offers.

Michael Vinales, MD Olympic Holidays, commented, ‘It’s been a tough year for the travel industry as a whole but supporting our trade partners is of great importance to us. The lockdown restrictions in place during November has greatly hindered their ability to do business, so we want to help as much as possible when they’re able to trade again. Following a number of conversations with various partners in recent days and taking on board their feedback, we are delighted to extend our Black Friday deals. Thanks to our price parity promise, our best offers are always available through the trade.’

Vim Vithaldas, chief commercial officer at The Travel Network Group, said, "Our members need all the support from our business partners and the feedback that we have received so far about the different Black Friday deals is really positive. Extending the offers until December 7 is a practical approach and will allow members some extra time to secure those vital sales that are so much needed at the moment.’

This year, the Olympic Holidays Black Friday offerings include transfers for £1, savings of up to 72% as well as room and boarding/accommodation upgrade opportunities. Some of the top destinations booked so far include Rhodes, Zante, Kefalonia, Skiathos & Cyprus with Symi, Lanzarote, with Rhodes showing the biggest increase year-on-year. 

May, June and July are the most popular departure months and Olympic Holidays has seen a significant reduction in the dwell time of consumers before making the bookings.

On the Black Friday booking trends so far, Michael Vinales comments, "What we’ve seen up till now is really positive and likely down to a number of things – firstly and most importantly a huge pent-up desire to travel. Other factors include the great number of deals to be had, reduction in quarantine time, news of the vaccine and we are sure that our £89 per person deposit is proving attractive along with the variety of airlines and departure points across the UK our guests can travel from. Let’s hope all this combined is giving consumers real confidence to book and bring a much-needed boost to the travel industry.’
