Great Little Breaks’ 1st birthday (b)looms

28th November marks one year since Great Little Breaks launched!

PRLog - Nov. 16, 2012 - 28th November marks one year since Great Little Breaks launched, enabling people to book incredible value short breaks across the UK complete with activities, attractions, excursions and treats – plus plenty of alluring added value – all included in the price. And as their birthday cake candle is blown out, their newest partnership, with The Great British Florist, blossoms.

Great Little Breaks’ latest (and rather lovely) affiliation is with The Great British Florist. Launched in 2012 out of concern that more than 90% of the flowers sold in the UK are imported, most from 3,000 miles away, its slogan is, quite simply, “Grown not flown”. The company’s ethos is not only environmentally friendly (reducing the impact of intensive flower farming on countries, and keeping flower miles to less than a tenth of their foreign counterparts), but also promotes biodiversity on British flower farms, and brings the customer far fresher, jetlag-free flowers.

Through this partnership, Great Little Breaks customers now have the opportunity to buy flowers via a link on the website, and a bouquet is included with all Great Little Romantic Breaks – delivered to the hotel on the day of arrival. For special occasion breaks – such as Mother’s Day or Easter - this is an ideal extra to add onto one’s booking. And loyal customers are now rewarded: anyone booking four breaks in a 12-month period is sent a bouquet as a thank you.

One year on and the Great Little Breaks brand has really taken off, with satisfaction levels extremely high: 98% of customers say they would use Great Little Breaks again, and 98% would recommend the company to a friend.

The brainchild of Vivienne Hudson-Findlay, Great Little Breaks offers hundreds of all-inclusive packages and breaks that include accommodation in hotels and apartments, attraction passes, entrance to heritage properties, spa treatments and all sorts of extras for free, from afternoon tea to cocktails and dinner, and from family attraction tickets to discount shopping vouchers.

Offering 13 types of break (including Great Little Christmas Breaks, Great Little Gourmet Breaks, Great Little Family Breaks, Great Little Inclusive Breaks and Great Little Theatre Breaks), the biggest-selling packages have been Great Little Heritage Breaks to Chatsworth, Great Little City Breaks in Cheltenham, Great Little London Breaks and Great Little Ramblers Breaks in Northumberland.
Favourite destinations have proved to be Gloucestershire, South Yorkshire, Cheshire, Hampshire and Derbyshire. Last-minute bookings (within a month of departure) are extremely common and reflect a growing trend for short-termism, caused by the economic recession. So astonishingly vast are the savings via Great Little Breaks’ exclusive offers (often as much as 60% off) that people have been speedy to sign up to be sent the latest special offers, growing the company’s database by around 150,000 in under 12 months.

And such has been the enthusiasm for the new brand that relationships with high street travel agents have swiftly been established to extend these offerings to a wider audience. Several partnerships have been created - including with Affordable Car Hire, offering the best value car hire in the market, and with Asperity, the UK's largest and most-used employee discounts scheme – with a view to consistently expanding the spectrum of Great Little Breaks’ services.
