Easter is over - let's talk Turkey & Tinsel!
Staff at award-winning West Country coach operators Bakers Dolphin are already feeling festive coping with a rush of people from the region booking Christmas breaks and trips.
The Christmas rush has started earlier than ever at the firm following the release of its new Festive Breaks brochure.
Sales & Marketing Director Amanda Harrington said: “It seems crazy to be talking about Christmas when we’ve only just had Easter, and when people have not even started to think about packing for their summer holidays.
“But we’re simply responding to demand, and judging by the number of enquiries and bookings we have already had, that demand is stronger than ever.
“More and more people are making a festive break with family or a group of friends a regular part of their seasonal celebrations and traditions.
“In the past, we’ve seen disappointed people because the trip they would love to take is already fully booked by the time they’ve started thinking about a winter break.
“That is why people have started planning getting earlier year after year, to ensure they get their preferred choices and something to look forward to at the end of the year.”
Bakers Dolphin is committed to continually look for new tours to add to its offer, and this year’s 44-page brochure is no exception.
Amanda added: “We have over 35 new tours for the festive period which offer much more choice for a fabulous break during this exciting time for everyone.
“We have also added even more Gold Coach tours to this year’s fantastic range of festive breaks, so the holiday pampering begins the moment you step on board.”
The brochure contains a mix of Christmas markets, both on the continent and in Britain, with new tours to Chester and Salisbury or, if you fancy sampling some festive fayre further afield, there are new tours to Metz & Luxembourg and Antwerp, Brussels & Leuven, among many more.
There are festive weekend shopping tours, turkey’n’tinsel trips and entertainment extravaganzas, which this year include a five day tour to Bournemouth to see the world famous band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines present a military music spectacular.
To really take the stress out of your trip and make it as relaxing as possible, Christmas and New Year breaks of four days or more come with free Home Link, where you are collected from, and returned to, your front door.
All tours can be found in the Bakers Dolphin Festive Breaks brochure. To request a copy or book a holiday call 01934 415000 or visit www.bakersdolphin.com or visit one of the many Bakers Dolphin-appointed travel agents throughout the South West.
