How Do Brits Respond to Economic Woes? They Go on Holiday!
October 1, 2013Article by Ray Withers
British families, along with those in many other parts of the world, have been tightening their belts and reducing spending in order to weather their country’s economic woes over the past few years. However, the latest TripBarometer survey from leading travel website TripAdvisor shows that there is one thing Brits are not prepared to cut back on – their holidays.
Little and Often
Despite lasting pessimism about household budgets the TripBarometer poll has shown that UK citizens put their travel budgets ahead of almost all other types of leisure expenditure. Nights out, charity donations and childcare costs are all happily slashed in order to ensure that holidays remain top of the priority list, with 88% of respondents confirming that, “it’s worth making sacrifices to make memories.”
Making it Count
With holidays being conducted at the expense of other activities, making them count is essential. Families are scrutinising the options for breaks that offer a high quality holiday experience, while still achieving value for money. As holidaymakers become more discerning, hotels that have achieved top TripAdvisor ratings, along with the site’s prestigious Certificate of Excellence, are racing ahead of the pack.
The Amazing Alps
AlpenClub in Bavaria is the perfect example. The number one hotel in Schliersee, based on TripAdvisor reviews, AlpenClub has been awarded the 2013 Certificate of Excellence, which recognises establishments that receive consistently outstanding traveller reviews. With happy customers both within Germany and across the world, AlpenClub is experiencing high demand for its combination of relaxation, luxury and stunning cuisine.
More than just a Holiday
For those looking for more than just a holiday, Property Frontiers has a limited number of investment opportunities available in the fabulous AlpenClub resort. With a low entry point, high yields and only 20 rooms available for investment, it seems that demand by investors for AlpenClub will be just as competitive as demand by holidaymakers!
