The Easter Weekend Saw Over Two Million Brits go on Holiday to Destinations all Over Europe, With Continental Breaks Remaining a Firm Favourite for Thrifty Holidaymakers

NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, England, May 4, 2011 - According to figures published by ABTA, 2.45 million Brits went on a
foreign holiday during the Easter break, taking advantage of the 11 day
holiday created by the Royal Wedding and the traditional Easter break. The
number of British travellers opting to go abroad during April reveals that
the travel industry is recovering after the events of 2010, say
ulookubook.com (www.ulookubook.com/).

Ian Raine of ulookubook.com, comments: "The figures released by ABTA made
for pretty positive reading before the Easter break. Almost 76% of British
travellers headed for destinations in Europe, which is just phenomenal, as it
shows that British travellers breaks in Europe from Parisian city breaks to
all-inclusive holidays in Majorca (
www.ulookubook.com/all-inclusive-holidays-in-majorca) remain as
popular as ever."

Following ABTA's announcement, a number of airports around the UK
reported high passenger numbers over the Easter weekend, with 600,000
passengers reported as flying from Heathrow. Elsewhere in the UK, 250,000
passengers flew from Gatwick, 150,000 from Edinburgh and 105,000 from Luton,
and the increase in the number of passengers means good numbers for the
summer holidays too.

Raine continues: "Easter is the precursor to the summer, and it's often a
fairly accurate indicator of the level of holiday bookings and passenger
numbers that we can expect during the summer months. The Easter weekend was
an extremely popular time for British holidaymakers to go on holiday, and
while this will have been due in part to the exceptional number of bank
holidays this month, the high numbers of bookings and enquiries for breaks in
European destinations, like cheap holidays in Cyprus (

consumer trust in the holiday industry is recovering, which is just fantastic
