   Reports About Holiday Bargains Have Been Exaggerated, But Cheap Holidays Can Be Found

       By Jenny Simpson, Web Certain for Holidays-Direct
       Dated: Jun 21, 2007

       Don’t believe the hype, but do your research and you’ll be able to take advantage of great deals on
       mainland Spain and Turkey holidays for summer 2007. That’s the message from
       www.holidays-direct.co.uk.

       Recent publicity about £5 bargain holidays this summer has misled many holiday shoppers, says online
       holiday booking agent www.holidays-direct.co.uk, but the truth is there are lots of cheap holidays available
       in popular holiday destinations.

        Although recent news stories have been widely exaggerated, there are significant bargains to be found this
       year. It is particularly easy to book cheap holidays in Turkey and find mainland Spain holiday bargains this
       summer.

        Recent stories about summer holidays being on sale for as little as £5 have caused a flurry of publicity in
       both mainstream news circles and tourist industry media. Naturally, such extreme bargain holidays are
       very rare and the truth behind the headlines is that room rates have been lowered in some of the most
       popular summer holiday destinations – leading to very customer-friendly price reductions for summer 2007.

        This year has seen more and more competition between Mediterranean tourist centres as the prevalence of
       cheap flights is encouraging people to take more holidays.

        The vast majority of holidaymakers now research and book their holidays online and are used to shopping
       around for the best holiday deals. This consumer demand for cheap holidays is driving competition and
       pushing prices down.

        Paul Reeve of Holidays-Direct said: “The £5 summer holiday bargain is somewhat like the gold at the end
       of the rainbow, only slightly more believable. It’s a shame there has been so much attention focused on this
       as it is very true that there have been significant reductions in many resorts in Turkey and Spain. There is a
       wide range of really good deals to choose from and many resorts are cheaper to stay in than they were last
       summer.

        For example: 7 nights in Turkey this July costs as little as £169 per person. 7 nights in Spain starts at just
       £199 per person *
