Prestige has boosted its UK holiday options with castle breaks in Scotland and Ireland, the introduction of escorted group tours and more hotel choice across the Isles of Scilly and Channel Islands.
Short breaks start from just £328 for a three night stay at the Revere Hotel in Jersey in February and March including: return flights from Southampton, transfers and BB accommodation.
Commenting on the increased range of holidays in the UK, Lee Hamilton, Prestige’s Specialist Sales Manager, said: “With uncertainty elsewhere in the world and the weakening of the pound following Brexit, the appetite for UK holidays continues to grow. We have seen a surge in UK bookings year on year and our business is up almost 60% hence the expansion of our programme.
“We have also seen a growing trend for escorted tours and have had success with these in other destinations so it made sense to offer them for the UK too.”
