 Two thirds of Irish holidaymakers have yet to book their annual holiday according to Click&Go’s most recent Travel Sentiment Survey. The survey examined answers from 2,654 respondents.

Eighty-eight per cent of the respondents that haven’t booked still plan to book a 2023 overseas holiday. Fifty-eight per cent of respondents want to travel in the summer (July to September) followed by 39% in the autumn months (October to December) and three per cent will wait until 2024.

Sixty-eight want to go on a sun holiday, 17 per cent a city break, eight per cent a cruise holiday and the remaining seven per cent are planning on either USA, Worldwide, Disneyland Paris or a visit to family and friends.

Paul Hackett, CEO of Click&Go: “It is surprising that people are leaving it this late to book their summer holidays. The survey was conducted in June and 58% are still hoping for a deal for July, August and September. Unfortunately, prices are unlikely to fall so we’d urge people to book now.”

He continued, “We have some last minute deals but the longer you leave it to book the more expensive it will be.”

Click&Go currently has great value summer holiday deals to an array of destinations. A family (two adults and two children) can enjoy a 7 day holiday to the Algarve from just €2079 in July (available here). Find more offers on the Click&Go website.
