Golfbreaks extends ‘Early Birdie’ promotion following record bookings for September

3.09pm 4th October 2021 - Travel

Having experienced the busiest September for domestic golf travel in the company’s 23-year history, Golfbreaks has extended its traditional ‘Early Birdie’ promotion until the end of October as bookings continue to surge for both the UK and overseas trips. 

The Early Birdie promotion, a long-term partnership with Callaway, gives those booking eligible holidays for 2022 the chance to receive a free Callaway Epic Driver alongside their booking. Golfbreaks also offers travellers the opportunity to accumulate Breakpoints, a loyalty-based rewards scheme which helps golfers to save money for their group on future golf trips.

Owing to this increase in demand, Golfbreaks has lengthened its Early Birdie promotion to run into October, offering consumers an extended opportunity to take advantage of the benefits involved, even at this unprecedentedly busy time. 

The easing of Covid-19 travel regulations has seen a huge spike in forward bookings, namely for Spring 2022, as travellers are given the confidence to book their holidays further in advance.

Andrew Stanley, CEO and founder of Golfbreaks, commented: “It’s brilliant to see that golf travel is seeing an uptake in bookings after what has clearly been a very challenging 18 months for the travel industry as a whole. We’re pleased to see continued easing of global travel restrictions and believe that this will give our consumers continued confidence and peace of mind as they look forward to breaks at some of our incredible venues across Europe and the rest of the world.”

From October 4, travelling abroad is set to become easier for UK Golfers, with fully vaccinated travellers no longer requiring a pre-departure test before returning from green list destinations – with lateral flow testing also set to replace the more expensive PCR tests for Brits returning from overseas.

This news has been coupled with the easing of travel restrictions to the USA, one of Golfbreaks’ top long-haul destinations. Travel is set to begin again from November, with Florida, Arizona, Texas and Southern California being among the most popular US regions golf travellers.
