UK OTA Holiday Hypermarket has revealed package holidays for some leading European destinations have seen discounts increase up to a half.
The highest average discount in 2019 was for Montenegro (59%), followed by 43% in Tunisia and 34% in Bulgaria, compared to 2018 prices.
All 10 locations analysed by Holiday Hypermarket found a rise in discounts. Spain, the OTA’s top selling destination, has seen sales discounts increase by 29%.
Egypt, Croatia, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus and Turkey also saw increased discounts ranging from 26% to 17%.
Holiday Hypermarket reviewed the average discounts for bookings between April 1 and May 19, then compared the findings to 2018 data.
