LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 01/02/13 -- Following the launch of their mobile website earlier this year, UK short break specialists Center Parcs have announced that even more of their website's features can now be accessed through your smartphone.
You can now easily book indoor and outdoor activities through the Center Parcs mobile site, as well as spa sessions and treatments at the Aqua Sana Spa, and make reservations at any of the on-site restaurants. Things to do can be booked in advance whilst planning your break or during your stay at one of the four locations across the UK.
Other features of the mobile site include the option to book your break, learn what's on offer at each of the Center Parcs villages, and view a video and photo gallery.
With nearly one in three adults in the UK owning a smartphone according to recent reports, the ability to book travel via mobile websites is an important option for customers. Global mobile searches increased by 400% in 2011 alone, and consumer demand for mobile optimised sites is expected to soar in 2013, according to an IAB and Crowd DNA study.
The enhanced site is accessible by visiting http://www.centerparcs.co.uk from your smartphone; if you are using Android 2.2 or iOs 4.1 and above, you will be redirected to the mobile site. Share your thoughts at http://www.facebook.com/CenterParcsUK or at @centerparcsuk.
