With Christmas almost upon us, it can be quite daunting to buy gifts for loved ones, especially if what they have asked for is suddenly sold out. Not wanting to let them down, many people are finding that the items they wish to purchase are available on auction sites but for overblown prices.
This has been happening over the last few years but is most noticeable on ticket sites such as StubHub where tickets for popular shows, such as comedian Peter Kay, are being resold for up to £550 per ticket which would have originally cost £40 - £60.
The same can be said about the popular toy or gadget for 2017. The new iPhone X is currently being sold on sites such as eBay for up to 20% more than the £1,149 RRP, as demand for the product has outweighed its availability. The number one selling toy of for this Christmas is the interactive doll ‘Luvabella’ which retails for £99.99 but is also currently trending at around £150 on eBay.
These prices aren’t giving the customer the value for money they deserve so it is a smart move to choose a present for you loved ones which you know they will enjoy and appreciate. Why not consider booking a holiday for the entire family? Our holidays team can find you a city break, including theatre tickets, an all-inclusive week away, or if you want to spend slightly more, we can find that perfect long-haul deal for you at a price to suit your budget.
