Scott Dunn posts record-breaking November sales

Friday, Nov 26, 2021 0

Luxury operator Scott Dunn says it is on track for a record-breaking November as demand for holidays hits pre-pandemic levels.

Trading is already over 300% ahead of November 2020 and the business recorded the biggest single week on 8 November for enquiries and bookings since January 2020.

Africa is making a big comeback this month with South Africa bookings up by over 200% when compared with November 2019.

With the US firmly back on the radar, bookings to the States are up 63% compared to 2019.

After almost two lost seasons, demand is high for ski holidays to France, Italy and Switzerland with enquiries 30% ahead of November 2019.

It says the biggest increase in demand came following the reduction of the red-list back on 11 October.

Over the summer, Scott Dunn saw increasing numbers of trips taking place with guests heading off to Europe. 

Whilst volume was well below levels seen pre-Covid, it was significantly up on summer 2020 and in October, Scott Dunn was back to 88% levels of departures versus October 2019.

Sonia Davies, CEO, said "Given where travel has been in the last 18 months and the fact that in October travel to Asia and Latin America was still very restricted, we were delighted to see our business returning strongly.  Greece, Maldives, UAE and Portugal were our top destinations."

Since 11 October, Scott Dunn has seen a surge interest for South Africa, Costa Rica, Thailand and Oman. 

Team members are also getting back out travelling again.

"We have had a number of our team take training trips to: Grenada, Mauritius, Peru, Spain, Italy and the Maldives, to understand the latest situation on the ground and how our partners in country are ensuring Covid-safe protocols are in place," said Davies.
