Spain was the most searched for country for flights by British holidaymakers last month, according to a recent travel survey. The Flight Travel Trends poll, which was conducted in August, revealed that the Spanish resorts Malaga and Alicante were the two most popular individual destinations, and revealed that while destinations like Turkey and Sharm el Sheikh are becoming more popular with British tourists, Spain is still the UK’s favourite holiday destination.
“Spain is so popular with British tourists because it’s relatively inexpensive compared to other popular countries. It’s the original package holiday destination, and if you’ve got internet access it’s now so much simpler for consumers to find the best deal to suit their budget, so if someone is looking for something specific like cheap flights to Alicante, they’re more likely to find what they’re looking for online than anywhere else,” says Alex Saint of online holiday experts, Dealchecker.co.uk.
The results of the poll, which also included searches for flights to New York, London and Amsterdam in the top ten, comes as Stansted Airport announces more Easyjet flights to three key Spanish destinations, including Bilboa and Alicante. So it’s now even easier for holidaymakers to travel to Spain on a budget, which will then leave them with more money to spend on those other, more important holiday essentials.
“While the internet has made it easier to book holidays, it’s also made it simpler to book other travel necessities, which you can often get special deals on if they are booked in advance. So keep your eye out for discounts on hotels, restaurants and even transport. Alicante car hire can be a fun and reliable way to travel, and means that you won’t be forced to spend lots of money on taxis to move around the city.”
