66% of holidaymakers have yet to book their 2023 holiday

Click&Go Travel Sentiment Survey finds two thirds of respondents are booking holidays late

Two thirds of Irish holidaymakers have yet to book their annual holiday according to Click&Go’s most recent Travel Sentiment Survey. The survey examined answers from 2,654 respondents.


88% of the respondents that haven’t booked still plan to book a 2023 overseas holiday. 58% of respondents want to travel in the summer (July to September) followed by 39% in the autumn months (October to December) and 3% in 2024.


68% want to go on a sun holiday, 17% a city break, 8% a cruise holiday and the remaining 7% are planning on either USA, Worldwide, Disneyland Paris or a visit to family and friends.


Paul Hackett, CEO of Click&Go, “It is surprising that people are leaving it this late to book their summer holidays. The survey was conducted in June and 58% are still hoping for a deal for July, August and September. Unfortunately, prices are unlikely to fall so we’d urge people to book now.”


He continued, “We have some last minute deals but the longer you leave it to book the more expensive it will be.”
