The findings fit a summer 2014 market that saw strong bookings early, but a decline since mid-March leading to pressure on prices (Travel Weekly, June 26). The TNS research found the last-minute trend strongest among 16 to 24-year-olds, of whom 39% intending to take a holiday said they would book late. London showed the lowest rate for last-minute booking at 9%, against 24% in the north, although the proportion already booked was highest in the north (23%) and lowest in London (11%). Adults with children were also unlikely to book last minute – just 9% said they would do so. Those who last took an overseas holiday in 2013 were most likely to book this year (42%). Consumers who have already had a holiday this year were most likely to have another booked already (37%). Get the full story at Travel Weekly UK
