Grand UK's feast of fresh festive offerings

1st June 2012


More than 30% of the holidays in the latest brochure from over-55s specialist Grand UK Holidays are new products.

They include fresh options from the ‘Grand UK Gold’ upmarket coach tours range, new ‘Festive House Party’ holidays and even more options in the UK Christmas markets portfolio.

The new ‘Grand UK Gold’ tours have proven to be a winner with customers and almost 90% of the overall programme was snapped up within the first six months of sale.

Grand UK Holidays expects a second ‘Grand UK Gold’ coach to be operating before the end of 2012, with up to four coming into operation in 2013.


As well as the ‘Festive House Parties’, the Grand UK Holidays’ 2012-13 festive/winter brochure also introduces a ‘Fete de Noue’ holiday in Jersey and a ‘Warner Festive Celebration’ holiday.

These new Yuletide options complement festive favourites, such as Turkey & Tinsel holidays, Christmas and New Year breaks, and escorted tours to UK Christmas markets.

New UK Christmas market holidays include ‘Festive Yorkshire Treats’, ‘Festive Chester & Snowdonia’ and ‘Severn Valley Festive Delights’.

Grand UK Holidays offers one of the widest selections of Christmas and New Year holidays in the UK and more than 4,000 customers join the operator for the traditional festive season each year.


Harold Burke, sales director, said: “The festive season is one of the busiest times of the year for us and lots of our customers book early, often as soon as the brochure comes out in May.

“With so many regulars booking with us each year, it is important we keep adding new holidays to our range to offer fresh products to customers and our agency partners.”


As well as festive holidays, the brochure also features 14 new themed holidays in the UK and Ireland, including a ‘Torquay Rock!’ 50s and 60s break, and ‘Blackpool Cabaret & the Singing City’.
