Cosmos Holidays has reduced first child prices for its Lapland trips in the credit crunch.
Head of specialist products Sara Gelder said: -¬---As we were expecting, a trip to see Santa this Christmas is less affordable in the current downturn so we have decided to discount child prices early in the run-up to Christmas to maintain our current programme."
The offer applies to bookings made before September 30 and complements the additional initiatives by the operator to kick-start this year-¬™s lates market for Santa holidays.
Child prices at the four diamond plus rated Hotel Levitunturi in the resort of Levi Fell now start from -£499 - a discount of -£236 on brochure price - for the three-night trip departing Manchester on 9 December.
Other dates available include December 3, 12 and 16 from Gatwick and 6 from Manchester.
Also available for bookings made before September 30 are group offers where the 11th adult goes free when travelling with 10 full fare-paying adults and senior citizens over 60 pay no single supplement if staying in the same room with one or more full fare-paying children.
