MANCHESTER, England, April 28, 2011 - On the Beach has released their ten most popular destinations for British
travellers this summer; Spanish destinations dominate the list due to the
availability of cheap flights to the country.
Leading online travel agent On the Beach has released its ten most
popular destinations for British tourists this coming summer. The list is
dominated by Spain as seven of the featured destinations are located in the
European country. The travel agent has attributed this trend to the
availability of cheap flights (www.onthebeach.co.uk/flights) to the
country's many excellent resorts.
The list ranks the top ten destinations based upon total projected
departures during July and August. Resorts placed in the following order:
Majorca, Ibiza, Dalaman, the Algarve, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria,
Bodrum, Costa Blanca and Fuerteventura. Bodrum, the Algarve and Dalaman are
the only entries on the list which are not in Spain.
Costa Blanca (wikitravel.org/en/Costa_Blanca) and Fuerteventura
are appearing on this list for the first time this year. According to On the
Beach this is a significant development as it shows the growing dominance of
Alistair Daly, Marketing Director of On the Beach, comments: "This list
clearly demonstrates that Spain is as popular as ever, in with millions of
British holidaymakers heaing to resorts on the mainland and its excellent
island resorts. This shift in popularity can primarily be attributed to the
creation of new low cost routes to airports in Spain - these flights allow
our customers to embark on holidays to Majorca (
www.onthebeach.co.uk/destinations/balearics/majorca), the Canary
Islands and the mainland without spending a great deal on airfare. This
summer people are very focused on getting abroad without overspending - Spain
is clearly the place to do so."
