Brits opt for more flexible holiday durations, says report

Jet2holidays has reported a surge in flexible duration holiday bookings. The tour operator has said that consumers are increasingly booking breaks of between eight and 13 nights. So far this year, one in five Jet2holidays customers has booked a summer break , which falls in between the traditional one or two week break, up from one in seven in 2010. Jet2holidays findings are also backed by the Institute of Payroll Professionals research, which revealed that three-quarters of workers think that the ideal length of time to be on annual leave in order to feel rested and recharged is eight or more days. Steve Heapy, managing director of Jet2holidays, added: “Two weeks away may be what we aspire to, but work commitments and a lack of holiday allowance can often make it impossible. But by carefully selecting the departure date, customers can book less days off work yet spend more time on the beach.”
