Holiday bookings down so far this year

Just 72% of Dutch people have already booked a summer holiday compared with 76% this time last year, according to research from ContinuVakantieOnderzoek.

Dutch destinations are the worst hit, with a 9% fall. The researchers put this down to the bad summer weather in 2007.
