As winter approaches loveholidays.com recommends Cyprus as one of the top choices for travellers seeking affordable winter sun. Historically, the island has been enduringly popular with Brits due to its high temperatures and consistently sunny weather. However, this year loveholidays.com saw a 22% decline in bookings due to the destination rarely being out of the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The online travel agent that launched in early 2012 reports over 500% growth in the business year on year. CEO Alex Francis said: “Since launching loveholidays.com last year we’ve seen a huge change in how people book through us. Over 70% of travellers have no direct contact with our call centre staff, they simply book a holiday online and away they go.”
