US Holidays bounce back with Biden
Immediately after Donald Trump lost the presidential vote, we saw searches for US destinations soar as many customers reconsidered their holiday plans in light of the election result.
Comparing the 9 day post-election period to the 9 day pre-election period, we saw a massive uplift in families searching for Florida-based breaks with a 197% hike in searches for holidays to Florida including DisneyWorld.
What was more surprising was the uplift in Miami, traditionally a gay friendly, young couples destination which saw a 508% increase in search volume after the Biden win.
Our MD, Wayne Perks, noted that: “All of our US destinations are seeing a lot of interest. The timing of the additional interest seems to correlate to that of the Presidential Election, so we can only assume that Joe Biden, with his more progressive Democratic viewpoints, is being perceived as creating a destination that more welcoming and inclusive for UK holidaymakers. We are seeing a massive increase in families looking to book resorts in Florida for their Summer holidays, and also for our most popular city breaks.”
It appears the people have spoken in the UK as well as the USA, so let’s get down to our very best holiday deals for summer 2021, with vaccine rolled out, Biden installed, US holidays in Miami, Orlando, New York and Las Vegas with Black Friday deals too.
Miami Holidays in 2021
If you’ve been Biden your time to book that Miami holiday and now feel confident to do so then do we have the deal for you!

New York Holidays in 2021
The city that needs no introduction. We don’t need to persuade you to visit New York, a lifetime of movies, songs, TV programmes and literature makes NYC the city you already know before even visiting it. Thanks to FRIENDS and Sex in the City, thanks to Woody Allen, thanks to Jay-Z (and even thanks to Donald Trump!) we all have ten reasons to visit and another ten to go back.
You can visit the city that never sleep next May from just £438 per person including flight and hotel but we recommend the 4* Affinia Shelburne with its 4.5/5 Tripadvisor rating located in Midtown East for that true New Yorker experience from £622 per person including flights.
“If adventure is what you seek during your summer holidays, you might want to try Affinia Shelburne NYC, an amazing holiday home situated at a distance of 800 metres from the iconic Empire State Building. Centrally located in Murray Hill on Lexington Avenue, just a couple of blocks away from the Grand Central Station, this hotel puts you right amidst the action of the city. With a warm and inviting ambience, the hotel is the perfect place to spend the weekend in the city. Affinia Shelburne NYC can accommodate guests in its 325 plush rooms, equipped with flat-screen TVs, en-suite bathrooms and sleek kitchenettes. The on-site restaurant of the hotel is good for grabbing a quick bite as you enjoy the sights and sounds of Manhattan.”
Orlando Holidays in 2021
The kids will love you forever but so will the other half, Orlando is so much more than just Disney with many other parks and attractions. If you hire a car then it’s only a short distance to either coast, Gulf or Atlantic, where you can explore Tampa, St Petes, Clearwater or Daytona Beach!
If you’re in the market for an Orlando holiday in 2021 may we recommend the Radisson Lake Buena Vista from just £606 per person including flights in August 2021.
“For those guests who want to indulge in the magic and excitement of Orlando, then the Radisson Hotel Orland Lake Buena Vista is sure to tick every box. From here, guests can enjoy many of the top attractions which include theme parks and water parks. The hotel provides an excellent level of accommodation as well as an on-site restaurant that caters to the needs of all. There is an outside pool that guests can enjoy when they want some downtime as well as a gym for those who like to keep fit. The Radisson Hotel Orland Lake Buena Vista is a perfect pick for families and couples who want to explore this amazing corner of America.”
Las Vegas Holidays in 2021
If you think that lady luck is on your side in 2021 (how could it be any worse than 2020?) then a trip to Las Vegas may be on the cards.
We recommend Circus Circus Hotel and Casino as the most fun place you can spend your time! Holidays are available this June from £589 per person including flights.
