As Britain prepares to go to the polls in June, Park Holidays UK says it already knows the result – because general elections always trigger a rise in demand for holiday breaks.

The fast-growing parks group says it’s seen the pattern repeated on every occasion for the past 25-plus years. First the announcement, then the rush to get away!

But this time, Park Holidays UK is rolling out plans already in place for when the starting gun fired – and has announced a landslide of special deals in the run-up to June 08.

“Election escape breaks” for up to six people will be available from just £69.00 for three or four nights at Park Holidays UK’s highly acclaimed seaside parks in Southern England.

The deals will also run for three weeks after the country votes, enabling politics-weary families to get away and celebrate the result – or to swap their tears of sorrow for peals of laughter.

“We’ve noticed that general elections always seem to push our booking figures upwards from the moment they are announced,” said Park Holidays UK director Tony Clish.

“We suspect that some people treat them as they would any other major national event, and the news sparks an atmosphere of anticipation, or even celebration.

“For others, the prospect of an election fills them with dread, and their instinct is to try and find somewhere to hide from all that non-stop campaigning.

“Either way, our holiday parks provide the perfect place to go and forget the fray – or to treat the run-up to the poll as a good excuse to let your hair down!” added Tony.

But whatever the motive, says Park Holidays UK, the current special offers now posted on its website are bound to win a vote of confidence from everyone.

They include not just accommodation but also use of the parks’ leisure facilities such as swimming pools, all-day children’s entertainment, and the company’s renowned nightly cabaret shows.

And on election night itself, big-screen TVs in the clubhouses will enable guests to follow the fortunes of the parties in a party atmosphere.

“Over the past twenty-five years, we’ve worked tirelessly to create great value holidays in friendly and welcoming surroundings which make every family a winner,” said Tony Clish.

“I’m sure all our guests would agree that we are now delivering on our promises, and these latest election deals will give us a lead from the outset,” he said.
