Take a last-minute break with Grand UK
27th February 2012
For mature holidaymakers looking to make a last-minute booking, over-55s specialist Grand UK Holidays still has some limited availability on departures in March.
The coach tour specialist has noticed a trend towards later bookings among the mature market, as customers make spur-of-the-minute decisions to take a break and treat themselves.
It offers coach tours to destinations across the UK so customers don’t have to worry about digging out their passport – and if the forecast is sunny, they can book a late deal to take advantage of the spring weather.
