How Late Availability Deals Let Us Explore the UK

How Late Availability Deals Let Us Explore the UK

This is an article about how myself and my wife have managed to travel the length and breadth of the United Kingdom simply by booking late availability country hotels and inns. It sometimes seems like it’s impossible to see a little bit of England without breaking the bank, but as I and my wife discovered, that isn’t necessarily true.

The first time we got a good deal was on a trip to York last spring. We managed to book a room in a really pretty little bed and breakfast on the outskirts of this Roman town, which was found on one of these late availability websites. We couldn’t believe we got it – a lovely double room, with a good view. And the fried breakfast was almost worth the price alone. From here we explored some of Yorkshire’s lovely countryside.

In the summer time we decided to try and get somewhere on Lake Windermere. This is obviously a really popular spot, surrounded by lots of stunning hills and mountains. To our surprise we managed to book a superb hotel room quite near the Lake. It wasn’t quite as cheap as the one in York, but was nevertheless a good deal because someone had cancelled very close to when they were about to go. So we managed to explore this lovely area – and even tried a bit of wind surfing, thanks to one of these late availability websites.

That Christmas we decided to try our luck once more – this time in Devon. Neither I nor my wife had ever been to Devon – but we had heard so many good things we thought we would try and get a late availability deal. In the event, we didn’t manage to get a cottage on Dartmoor, as they all seemed to be booked up.

Instead we found a nice little cottage near Croyde, on the North Devon coast. It was a little bit cold for me and my wife to try surfing (as this beach is famous for it) but we had a lovely time walking along the various beaches and hills nearby.

So last spring we decided to book somewhere closer to home. This time we found a bed and breakfast on the Norfolk Broads. Again, it was a nice little spot.

As long as you’re prepared to give a little when it comes to location, opting for late availability deals certainly can save you few pounds. And the random nature of these deals means there is a certain excitement when it comes to booking a hotel or bed and breakfast in this way.

As businesses in Colchester come under increasing pressure, people are working harder to make a company a success. All too often, it can be easier to build relationships with key contacts over the phone or via video conference rather than travel to meet them face to face, as this can be perceived by some to be a waste of time and resources. You may find that important discussions often take place over the telephone when better relationships in terms of trust, and quicker business solutions could be developed by arranging meetings in person. Arranging that first meeting with important business contacts in person should ideally be done on neutral ground, which is why meeting rooms in hotels should be considered. Meeting rooms located in hotels make a perfect place for that first contact with an important business associate, and here at Holiday Inn Colchester, our meeting rooms are designed to host a comfortable and professional business occasion, which makes for a great first impression.

Taking your staff out of the daily grind and into a different environment can bring about increased productivity, new ideas and an enthusiasm that could be beneficial to your meeting or event.
