When the travel industry through that 2010 was tough due to the ash cloud, airport closures due to snow, and the looming strikes by British Airways, the travellers prayer that their journeys would be hassle free, and the travel industry prayed that there would be no disaster that would shut European skies.

However even without ash cloud, strikes, and bad weather, the economic doom and gloom from the ongoing recession continues to force people to tighten their purse strings and look for ever greater travel bargains.

The volatility that was not apparent has now become apparent in soaring fuel prices. This was not foreseen when planning 2011. This reason along has forced up air fares by an average of 25% from Jan 2011 to April 2011, and this will be the main challenge that holiday makers, and travel companies face as they continue to strive to make ends meet.

But not is all doom and gloom - Brightsun has seen a growth of nearly 25% year on year figures, and with airlines all competing for the business, there are great bargains to be had.

Travellers will forgo a large spend by downgrading from 5* to 4*, but they will not forgo a holiday. A holiday is required to bring the family together, to take a break from everyday, and to explore new places. This sense of adventure will keep travel alive for many years to come.

The destinations Brightsun believes are best to watch out for in 2011 are :

Oman – the unspoilt Arabia. Whether you want to experience the desert, go fishing on dhows like they have been doing for centuries, or marvel at the new hotels which have entered Oman, you will find something to do in this huge country. We have a range of Oman Holidays.

Egypt – Now that that Foreign Commonwealth Office has withdrawn their advisory against travel to Egypt, there are some great deals to be had. Luxor and Sharm el Sheikh are great spots, with Cairo expected to see a surge later on in the year, when peace should once again come to this land. As travel forms such a large proportion of GDP in this country, expect hoteliers and tour operators, and the government to making a concreted effort (probably lowering their rates ) to entice you to come back to the Jewel in North Africa Our range of Egypt holidays are herewith

Sri Lanka - has now become a great alternative to Thailand or Malaysia. After a drought of tourism till 2010, finally the conflict in Sri Lanka seems to have been brought to a halt. Many airlines from the UK have started routes to Colombo, with Qatar Airways, Emirates and Sri Lankan Airlines almost doubling their frequencies to the country. Sri Lanka offers not only a different type of holiday, but a difference type of experience. Visit our website for a range of Sri Lanka holidays

You may think shopping around for great travel bargains is so easy nowadays. Find a from one website, and find a cheap hotel from another and you have your holiday. However you need to watch out. Many people last year were caught out during the ash cloud, and the bad weather that grounded flights. If a package was not sold together then passengers were not covered - if there was a flight delay, and you could not arrive at your hotel, then passengers lost out by having to pay cancellation charges for the hotel. Further more if an operator went out of business then passengers may not have been covered for the flights but not the hotel, or view versa. is fully covered by ATOL and ABTA. In the event of our failure you will get a full refund of the monies paid. If you are already on holiday, then the Civil Aviation Authority has to get you back to the United Kingdom.
