Romantic holidaymakers take a bite out of the Big Apple

New York is the number one Valentine’s Day holiday destination for Funway customers.

This year, the city has come top for departures over the week commencing February 11 and has been the number one Valentine’s getaway for the operator for the past 25 years.

New York has seen a 200% increase in departures for Funway compared to last year. Las Vegas and Orlando share second place after a 220% increase in bookings for both, putting Punta Cana in third place with a 70% increase in departures compared to last year. Puerto Vallarta, Funway’s new destination, took fourth place with Barbados placing fifth.

Malcolm Davies, product destination manager for the company, said: “With Valentine’s Day falling midweek this year, our forward bookings indicate that couples are not only booking short haul mini-breaks but combining their February 14 celebrations with a more memorable week-long escape.”
