The Lake District is going as many areas have gone before with last minute breaks and holidays trending.
This year it appears more than ever with uncertainty with the dreaded word “Brexit” and general uncertainty around the world so affecting not just travellers from the UK but international visitors too. Christmas looming with it’s cost as well as time taken by many organising, it’s no wonder everyone is either looking for a bargain or simply hasn’t had time to book a break until the last minute.
Last minute holiday booking all started with holidays abroad. The cheapest prices could be had and many people liked the sense on the unknown, what would they get and even, where would they end up. So it’s no surprise it has filtered into the UK holiday market and even down to individual b&b and hotel rooms. Every guest wants a bargain and possibly needs a bargain as the only chance to get away, everyone is feeling the pinch of the recession in one way or another.
Despite operators in the Lake District having to offer lower prices or giving added value at present, there is one advantage of the modern day that is helping. Twitter and Facebook can really help tourism operators get a message out of a last minute deal, a room left, a table free in a restaurant, a cancellation. Social media can be used to its optimum effect here.
But it is also great now that destination specific portals and guides are being launched. One such is AllofTheLakeDistrict.co.uk and is growing in content week by week. They do not take commission, they purely list the very best Lake District hotels, self catering cottages, B&B’s even restaurants, shops and spa this, the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site has to offer.
