Holidaymakers can Bag a Bargain in New Scheme To Boost the Travel Industry, Supported by Co-operative Travel
West Midlands wanderlusters, dreaming of that longed-for getaway, can pop into their local Co-operative Travel shop and take advantage of a range of discounts and deals being offered by more than 80 big-name holiday companies, as part of a new “Holiday to Help Out” initiative.

The scheme, which will run from 2 – 8 November 2020, has been launched by travel industry magazine TTG (Travel Trade Gazette) and is being supported by Co-operative Travel, part of Midcounties Co-operative. Inspired by the success of the chancellor’s Eat Out To Help Out scheme in August, the Holiday To Help Out initiative aims to inspire travellers facing one of the darkest times of the year and inject vital support to Covid 19-hit travel businesses.  The campaign has been designed to encourage customers to go and talk to their local travel agent about booking their dream getaway.

Customers should simply visit or contact their local West Midlands travel agency between 2 – 8 November, including any of the 21 Co-operative Travel and Carrick Travel branches across the county, quote the holiday company name and the Holiday To Help Out offer to receive the deal or discount.

The 80+ travel companies taking part in the scheme range from Celebrity Cruises and easyJet Holidays to Olympic Holidays, Intrepid and Riviera Travel. Some of the deals and discounts available include 50 per cent off a luxury holiday to Indonesia with Elegant Resorts, a £60 per person discount on package holidays with Olympic Holidays, two weeks for the price of one on holidays to Greece with Sunvil, and US$100 onboard spend with every stateroom booking with Celebrity Cruises. The special offers are only available to customers booking them through a travel agent, such as Co-operative Travel.

To support the Holiday to Help Out scheme further, Co-operative Travel shops will be offering £100 off holidays when the booking is to the value of £2,000 or more, from selected travel companies and booked via the branches during the week-long campaign. Where the holiday company is already offering a discount or deal as part of the Holiday to Help Out initiative, the Co-operative Travel discount will be applied on top. The Co-operative Travel discount will also apply to holidays from selected travel providers who are not part of the Holiday to Help Out scheme, for example Jet2Holidays, TUI and Classic Collection.

Natalie Turner, Head of Branches for Co-operative Travel said: “We’re delighted to be supporting TTG’s Holiday to Help Out initiative to give the holiday industry a much needed boost and encourage customers through the doors of our 78 high street travel branches.

“As the winter blues set in, particularly after the year of turmoil we have all had, everyone needs something to look forward to and booking a holiday is the perfect fix. We have put all the correct measures in place to ensure our shops are a safe haven to welcome customers and help them book a bargain getaway as part of this exciting new scheme.

“With the current uncertainty around travel restrictions and ever-changing quarantine regulations, it’s never been more important for holidaymakers to book with an experienced and trusted travel agent. Excitingly, the Canary Islands are now back on the quarantine-free list and are a perfect holiday choice at any time of the year.

“Our Travel Advisors are primed and ready to navigate their customers through the complexities of the current travel booking process and help them book the discounted holiday of their dreams.”
