Some are rubbing their hands about this gloomy weather which has persisted since the start of the year. The Belgians are indeed looking for sun.

Traditionally, June is a difficult month for travel bookings. It was expected to be even more difficult this year due to the elections and Euro football. This was without counting on the persistent bad weather which changed the situation. “Reservations keep coming in“, says Sarah Saucuin, spokesperson for TUI. “We really feel that the Belgians are more than fed up with the bad weather and want to seek out the sun.

TUI, Belgium’s leading tour operator, notes a record increase in reservations for last minute departures. “But customers don’t necessarily have an idea of ​​destination in mind“, explains the spokesperson.”They ask for a destination with guaranteed sunshine and unbeatable prices.
