Glampsites.com Reports 71% Uplift in Bookings for First Half of 2019
Glamping accommodation specialist Glampsites.com has seen a 71% increase in bookings from 1st January 2019 to 1st July 2019 compared to the same time period last year. The UK-based website allows customers to easily search for their choice of glamping structure and filter their preferences such as an adults-only holiday, a dog friendly getaway or an eco-friendly break.
The company has enjoyed strong growth since its launch of online bookings. The website has seen an 87% increase in the number of bookable listings available in the past 12 months which has increased the choice of glamping accommodation options available to their customers.
Founder Andrew Norris said: “When we launched the booking website, the glamping market was already growing in popularity. The range of accommodation has evolved significantly over the past few years with a rise in ‘unique’ glamping structures such as boat houses, converted buses, gypsy caravans, hobbit houses and even a converted helicopter. Yet interestingly, the glamping pod structure remains the most popular for bookings on Glampsites.com.” Andrew continued, “The staycation trend has had a great impact on the glamping market and it looks set to continue. Popular glamping sites book up quickly and savvy customers now know to book well in advance, particularly ahead of summer. However there are factors that account for the 34% of last minute bookings* such as the prediction of good weather or simply pure spontaneity.”
Holidaymakers are seeking a ‘different’ type of holiday where they can truly escape from daily routines. Glamping offers just that - a holiday where you can ‘disconnect to reconnect’. Glamping has also become increasingly popular among younger people, particularly Millennials and Gen X-ers. With accommodation options available for any budget, glamping really is a holiday choice for everyone.
