MANCHESTER, England, August 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —

-Budget holidays have been all the rage this summer; On the Beach say this is thanks to the availability of cheap packages online-

On the Beach, the UK’s leading online travel agency, has seen a surge of interest in budget holidays. The company observed a significant rise in bookings for budget trips on its website in July, as many Brits headed off on superb, affordable holidays.

Alistair Daly, Marketing Director of On the Beach, comments: “This summer has been all about great bargains to places in Spain, Turkey and Greece. Couples and families alike have been especially keen to book their holidays at a minimum of expense. This perhaps owes to the uncertain economic climate, yet it is mostly thanks to the array of cheap deal on the internet: nowadays there is no need to spend a great deal of money on holidays.”

According to On the Beach, the majority of Brits have headed to the Mediterranean for their budget trips this summer, with warm holidays to places like the Balearic Islands proving especially popular. The company says that the proximity of these locations to Britain, and the ready availability of all inclusive packages, makes them a natural choice for budget conscious travellers.

Daly concludes: “Budget holidays to resorts in the Mediterranean have been popular for a long time, yet it is good to see this recent surge of interest. With so many cheap packages on offer, there is absolutely no need to spend a fortune. As more and more people use the internet to book their travel, we expect this number to only grow – once someone has seen the great deals available online, they are unlikely to consider any other alternatives.”
