Spa and wellness industry ignored by UK travel sector

The UK travel industry is neglecting the spa and wellness sector, according to Spafinder managing director John Bevan.

Bevan told travel trade publication Travel Weekly that he believed UK tour operators and travel agents do not know enough about the range of spa and wellness products. He said, “We are not inspiring consumers to think about doing these things and doing them close to home.”

He also said that the spa indsutry is expanding at a faster rate than the travel industry, but agents and operators have not spotted the opportunity. He added the demand from men, as well as women, for spa and wellness breaks is phenomenal.
