Simply Crete Holidays to be One of the Few Operators in the Short Haul Tourism Sector to be Expanding Next Year

A policy of re-structuring and maintaining standards of service has enabled Simply Crete Holidays to be one of the few operators in the short haul tourism sector to be expanding their operation for 2010.

Amersham, United Kingdom, September 05, 2009 --( Concentrating on the "middle" market and with no restrictions on arrival or departure days, the company is introducing the concept of a "one price for all seasons" offer which will encourage early bookings for peak season whilst not penalising clients who are restricted to taking their breaks during school holidays. Budget airlines operate into Heraklion, Crete from Manchester, East Midlands, Leeds-Bradford and Gatwick, along with charter flights from various regional airports

A price for all seasons

Selected properties will be offered at the same price throughout the year. This innovative pricing policy will be introduced in early November 2009.

On-line nightmares

The company, which offers an accommodation reservation service on the island of Crete, has also noted the dissatisfaction of those who have reserved their accommodation this year on-line through booking engines and been disappointed with the property upon arrival. "It is easy to make a property look good on a website. All you need is a good photographer, copywriter and web designer", said Steve Moorman, Operations Director. " We have personally visited, and in many cases, stayed at , all of the properties on our site. If they do not meet our exacting standards they are excluded."

Simply Crete Holidays plans to increase the number of properties which their clients can choose from by up to 20% in 2010, including more traditional cottages in rural locations which are a growth area for the eco-tourism/agro-tourism market.

"Through a difficult trading period, we have seen only a small reduction in bookings compared to last year", said Reservations Manager Viki Kuhlke. " We see more and more returning customers every year and anticipate our growth to return to 2007/2008 levels again next year."
