Voyager Travel Direct has reported an increase in holiday
bookings to Cape Verde, particularly during the autumn and winter
months. Cape Verde's surge in popularity is so significant that
holidays to the island nation accounted for 7 per cent of all Voyager
Travel Direct bookings in the months of September and October.
Cape Verde is a group of islands in the Atlantic Ocean, located off the west coast
of Africa. Colonised by Portugal in the 15th century, Cape Verde eventually gained
independence in 1975. The culture of Cape Verde is heavily influenced by the
Portuguese as well as its neighbouring African countries.
With winter temperatures averaging around 10 degrees warmer than the Canaries, Cape
Verde's warm weather is one of the main draws for sun-seeking winter tourists. With
the country's large and well-established tourism industry, Cape Verde holidays
appeal to those who want to relax in a stress-free and hospitable environment.
Many of the Cape Verde bookings through Voyager Travel Direct have been all
inclusive holidays, which bundle the costs of accommodation, flights and meals into
one holiday package. Voyager Travel Direct reported that all of its holiday bookings
to Cape Verde have been Boa Vista holidays or for stays at the resort of Santa Maria
on Sal Island.
Verity Eyre, the general manager of Voyager Travel Direct, responded to the increase
in Cape Verde bookings, saying: "Last year we didn't really sell Cape Verde at
all, this year we have worked together with a great supplier to negotiate some
fantastic all inclusive prices and this has led to a massive increase in Cape Verde
sales for us. Cape Verde offers pretty much guaranteed winter sunshine without
having to fly long-haul and offers a good alternative to the Canaries for clients
looking to try somewhere different this winter."
