Ebookers Beach Reporters Set Off

One lucky couple is packing their suitcase ready to embark on a holiday unlike any other, as they travel Europe, UAE and Egypt in their new role as the ebookers Beach Reporters. You may remember our story in May announcing the competition.

On 6th July, Darren Riley and Nicola Rawson from Southampton will begin their trip across three continents to 10 destinations over the next three weeks in search of the ultimate beach escape, sharing their personal tips and experiences along the way.

In May this year, ebookers.com, one of Europe’s largest online travel agents, carried out research to discover more about couples’ holiday habits.  The poll of 2,000 adults revealed that couples’ arguments start before even setting off on holiday, with 52% not being able to agree on the destination. Whilst the destination selection process is trying, 72% of Brits favour a beach holiday. ebookers’ Beach Reporters have been recruited to help find the ultimate beach destination.
