Superbreak is predicting a 15% increase in short-break domestic bookings for the May bank holiday.
Sales support manager Chris Cundall said 6,000 customers booked a short break through travel agents for the second May bank holiday in 2008, and he expects 7,000 for this year.
He added: "The late May bank holiday is always a popular time for people to get away for a few days, and with fewer people expected to travel abroad this year, this bank holiday will attract more than ever before.
"There tends to be a lot of families who travel during this period. Theme parks such as Legoland and Alton Towers do particularly well.
"For couples, historic cities such as York and Stratford Upon Avon often prove to be popular.
"London, though, will undoubtedly be the biggest seller for Superbreak, with people taking advantage of great rail fares to the capital."
