Holiday Trends For 2013

LONDON, February 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Thomas Cooks has investigated the priorities for British travellers in 2013

• Beach holidays the most popular option for winter and summer fun

• Personal gadgets named must-have holiday accessory as third of kids' holiday with a smart device

After one of the wettest years on record, Thomas Cook's December surveys have revealed a general public eager to get away in 2013. Here are the hotly tipped holiday trends for the coming twelve months, showcasing just what it is that Brits consider vitally important on their trips abroad.

Fun in the sun

Top summer and winter holiday destinations reveal people are craving sunny beach holidays for 2013 after a damp 2012 . Turkey and Tunisia are the respective winners, both of which have beautiful Mediterranean coastlines and more than comfortable climates. New York, the predicted top long haul destination, is considerably less sunny and sandy but definitely a vibrant and cultural choice. The number two spot went to Thailand which has all four reasons to visit New York in abundance.

Contact with home

Something else Thomas Cook discovered was that the availability of Wi-Fi in hotels is increasingly important to holidaymakers with over 28% of those surveyed saying it was very important or even vital. Considering the fact that a third of kids now take a smart device away with them, even family holidays need to come with easy access to Wi-Fi as part of the package to keep everyone happy! That's why Thomas Cook has acted to make over 1,000 hotels with Wi-Fi access available in its summer 2013 programme.
