Since the reduction of high street travel agents with Thomson and First Choice joining forces, travel experts have claimed the cost of a family holiday has increased. UK Airport Car Parks, which has launched a number of campaigns to help consumers bring down the cost of a holiday, has now launched a new campaign where they are teaching consumers how to haggle.
Before the high street travel agents merged, which includes Thomas Cook merging with the Co-Op and First Choice and Thomson merging, consumers were able to play them off against each other for a better price. However, since the reduction in high street travel agents the big names believed they had the market cornered. Now according to UK Airport Car Parks who help consumers find a better deal on airport car parking and insurance has said high street travel agents are now running scared.
With more choices available online with new travel agents being created, the high street travel agents are no longer confident and are now willing to once again compete against their fellow travel agents. Through the tips and advice from UK Airport Car Parks, consumers are now reporting they are saving up to five hundred pounds off a family holiday.
The haggling tips (http://www.ukairportcarparks.co.uk/blog/get-a-better-holiday-deal-by-haggling) put the consumer back in the driving seat with the travel agents, providing them with important information and tools to bring down the prices of holidays.
Chris Fryer from UK Airport Car Parks said: “Our holiday haggling tips have been a huge success, they are helping consumers save money, but the travel agents don’t like it.”
High Street travel agents and online agents need to sell holidays to make a profit, and due to the wide choice available the advertised price no longer the final price.
