BA Strikes Spike Late Availability Search Surge on The Holiday Cottages Website


The Holiday Cottages website has noted a significant increase in the number of visitors to the website accessing the Late Availability section since British Airways strikes began across the UK.



It is thought that people are trying to find alternative holiday options at short notice and the Late Availability section on the website is an ideal way to do that. 


This comes as good news for those tourism companies who deal with holidays in the UK and also for advertising companies who work on behalf of accommodation in the UK, but it is bad news for those travellers who were looking to jet off into the sunshine on foreign holidays this season. 


Unfortunately, further strike action is planned over the coming days and weeks and unless a deal is reached in may mean a lot more disruption for innocent holidaymakers this summer. 


The Holiday Cottages Late Availability section collates availability dates for thousands of self-catering properties and accommodation all over the UK and Ireland. Dates are taken up to 8 weeks in advance and cover every County in the Country. The section is available for use by all visitors to the website. 


The Holiday Cottages website offers advertising to self-catering accommodation owners. The site receives over 4 million hits per month and is listed on page 1 of all the major search engines including Google. You can view the site at
