'Yule' enjoy Grand UK's range of Xmas markets

14th June 2012


Grand UK Holidays has expanded its range of holidays to Christmas markets to cater for growing demand.


It has also added several options to its festive market range from the ‘Grand UK Gold’ collection of upmarket coach touring holidays.


It has added eight new Continental Christmas market breaks and three new British Christmas markets.


The new Continental Christmas market holidays include ‘The Markets of Lorraine & Alsace’; ‘Fairytale Markets and Hanseatic Treats’; and ‘Salzburg & Tyrolean Christmas Markets’.



Harold Burke, sales director, said: “The exchange rate and the stronger pound will add a boost to bookings for Continental Christmas markets, as more customers recognise their money will go further in the eurozone this winter.


“Also, our range of holidays to British Christmas markets has been extremely popular since we introduced it a couple of winters ago, so we have added three more new options –  one in the Severn Valley, one in Chester and Snowdonia, and one in Yorkshire.


“We find each year that there are plenty of folk who want to book their Christmas market trips early to make sure they get the hotel and tour that they want, so it’s a good option for travel agents to focus on, in order to ensure early bookings.”



The festive period has grown in importance for Grand UK Holidays as more and more mature holidaymakers look to treat themselves at this special time of year.


As well as new Continental and UK Christmas markets, the operator has added its first ‘Festive House Parties’, which start at £189pp for five days’ half-board accommodation, travel and three excursions.  


The new seasonal getaways are in addition to Grand UK’s ever-popular range of Turkey & Tinsel holidays, and Christmas and New Year breaks.


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 us for the traditional festive season each year.
