Parents Budgeting For Summer Holidays?

New statistics have been released by one of the UK’s largest discount websites to reveal a large increase in searches of the site for children’s entertainment discounts.

This suggests that parents across the UK are already planning and budgeting the cost of keeping the kids entertained throughout the school holidays.

From Sunday 16th June – Sunday 23rd June 2013, My VoucherCodes has reported a 359% increase in the number of searches made by parents related to ‘kid’s entertainment’, ‘outdoor/indoor activities’ and’ kids days-out’ by site users.

BuyaGift proved to be the most popular this week, with a deal which allows parents to get £10 off orders over £50. The offer is valid until the 6th July 2013 which
means parents can get a bargain in time for the school holidays.

Longleat attracted the second highest number of click-through this week within the ‘entertainment’ section, as they are offering 20% off tickets for family and friends. The offer will run until the 26th August which means parents have plenty of time to snap up a bargain.

For those parents who are looking to entertain their little ones at home have made the most of Craft4Kids’ which is currently offering 10% and free UK shipping on orders over £50. Others have been looking into Virgin Experience Days latest deal, offering a 16% off orders until the 30th June.

London still remains a popular destination for discount-hunting parents who have been making the most of the London Zoo discount where they can get 10% off regular ticket prices when buying a minimum of two adults and two children tickets. This offer is available until the 30th June.

Mark Pearson, Chairman of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, commented on the statistics:

“With the school summer holidays just around the corner, parents are way ahead this year making sure they can keep their kids entertained during the school holidays for a bargain price! It’s nice to see how much parents are willing to take their kids out and make the most of their holidays with them. It can cost parents a considerable amount of money to entertain the children, especially if you’ve got more than one, so I’m happy to see parents embracing our online offers.”
