Bookings for winter season are down 4 per cent

Bookings for this winter season are down 4% year on year, according to the latest figures from market research company GfK.

While a surge in late bookings has revived trade for summer 2019, bookings for departures after the October 31 Brexit deadline aren't as strong.

Bookings for summer 2020 are also down year on year by 3%, says GfK's latest Travel Insights.

David Hope, Senior Client Insight Director at GfK, said attractive prices and the wet weather in the last few weeks has boosted last minute bookings for this summer, with bookings to week ending August 10 showing a 'very healthy' 15% increase year on year on the back of an 8% increase the week before.

But it has failed to bolster bookings for holidays after the Brexit deadline.
