Britons love surprises that save money
A travel firm says demand for its Supersaver Mystery Hotels in the UK and Europe has shot up over the past few months as holidaymakers try to find ways to save money on the cost of accommodation without sacrificing quality.
Superbreak gives customers the option of booking hotel accommodation at discounted prices if they agree to leave the choice of hotel down to the operator.
Customers simply choose the destination and the hotel star rating but they are not told the name of the hotel until they confirm their booking. A brief idea of the location is given but not the name of the property.
Superbreak says that leaving it to choose the hotel means customers can make significant savings on the normal cost of accommodation. Currently it is offering unnamed four-star hotels in Leeds from £55 per person per night including breakfast, five-star London hotels from £78 per person per night including breakfast, and five-star hotels in Prague for £57.50 pppn bed and breakfast.
The operator says demand for its Mystery Hotels has risen more than a third over the past year. Prices start at £17.50 per person per night.
Ray Jone, marketing director, said: In the last eight months we have booked over 36,000 bed nights into our mystery hotels. We have ensured that customers can choose the star rating of their choice and then leave the rest a mystery until after they have booked.
Superbreak offers a range of hotels across the UK, including airport locations, and in Europe.
