Post-exam hols are on way back

THE post-Leaving Cert holiday is making a comeback -- but with added value. The number of stressed-out students booking post-exam holidays -- which had dropped substantially in recent years -- has again increased.

"We have seen a big increase in bookings this year," director of Cassidy Travel, John Spollen said.

The manager of leavingcertholidays.com, Hazel Tucker, said the days of paying €1,000 for a week in the sun were largely over.

She added: "The average price of a Leaving Cert holiday for one week would be anything between €400 to €600."
