Hotels set for a brighter summer

UK hotels are set to be busier over the summer as trade usually improves during these months.
According to the British Hospitality Association, there are fewer insolvencies in hotels during the summer season as custom tends to pick up after the quiet start traditionally seen at the beginning of most years.
The comments follow figures from PricewaterhouseCoopers which show that there have been less hotel insolvencies during the second quarter of this year.
Many hotels in the UK may see a rise in the number of Britons staying this summer, as the impact of the credit crunch is leading more people to take holidays closer to home.
While taking a domestic break may be one way to save money, Brits may find that cutting back on travel insurance cover to save cash is more costly in the long run should an incident occur.
Holiday insurance could help to cover some of the costs of holiday problems so that Brits do not have to dip into their spending money.
