You approach the traffic black-spot and brace yourself for the inevitable: the long tailbacks….
Multiple thoughts run through your mind – have the kids been to the loo, have you got enough snacks to keep everybody fed until you get through the bottle-neck, are the drinks within reach, is the iPad charged to keep the kids entertained until you’re through the lengthy traffic jam…
But as the clear roads stretch ahead of you, and hubby continues to drive at a steady 70mph, you remember, it’s Friday!
The nightmare of last year’s Saturday journey to the holiday park fades as you settle back into your seat and enjoy the views of fields, waiting to catch a glimpse of the sea as you get closer to your destination.
REJOICE – FRIDAY ARRIVALS ARE HERE!
From the first week of the 2016 season, you can stay at Monkey Tree Holiday Park from Friday to Friday, giving you peace of mind that the traffic chaos so common all over the UK on Saturdays in peak season, won’t ruin the start of your holiday.
Research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research reports that motorists are spending up to 91 hours a year stuck in their cars, queuing on congested routes, waiting for the lights to go green and the car in front to move.
And queuing causes stress.
Avoid it all by getting ahead of the crowds and start your holiday on a Friday. You will also dodge the majority of traffic by heading home on a Friday, giving yourself the weekend to unpack just to keep the relaxation going throughout the weekend, rather than getting home with no time to unwind after your journey.
