Mark Warner, which specialises in family and activity holidays, has reported that bookings to its four Greek summer resorts, on the islands of Rhodes, Kos, and Lemnos, are up around 25% compared to the same time last year.
In addition, Mark Warner has seen a 15% increase in people booking tennis and watersports courses from last year, something it puts down to the ‘Olympic effect’ of London 2012 inspiring people to get more active.
The operator also reports that visits to its website rose 40% last week following the Met office warning Brits to expect a cooler summer at home this year.
David Hopkins, managing director of Mark Warner says, “Greece as always leads the way with our customers. There is a real appetite in the market with our customers for good quality product with guaranteed weather conditions and with us delivering this combination at exceptional value means we are seeing a strong positive impact on sales across the season. We have also been boosted by our BA charter flights from London Heathrow which now account for 85% of our summer flying programme and which have proved immensely popular amongst our customers. ”
