In October I booked by internet a SC holiday for two people in Petra for a basic price of £776 (no flight meals or extra luggage etc). Yesterday I tried to book the exact same holiday for friends only to find the price has risen to £1066, which I think equates to a 37% increase
I am flying out on September 25th for the last 2 weeks of the season – which is usually cheaper as some of the tavernas have closed down for the winter. As we are in a recession why have the holiday prices been hiked to this extent? Are the holiday companies trying to price Lesvos out of the market or is this a ploy enabling them to reduce the price in a future sale to make it look like a bargain?
Any thoughts are welcome as Lesvos tourism needs as much help as it can get.
