Brits Still Prefer Holidays in Spain, Reports

In the ever growing holiday market, Brits still favour holidays in Spain and other old favourite holiday destinations. City breaks in Barcelona are also a top choice when looking into booking a holiday, according to online travel agency

London, United Kingdom, February 24, 2008 --( Brits typically start searching for holiday destinations four weeks before they book a holiday. And it’s holidays in Spain and city breaks in Barcelona that they are most interested in, according to online travel agency

Other top interests are holidays in Greece, Tenerife and Lanzarote, and the favourite city break destinations following Barcelona are Rome, Dublin and Venice. This is based on the most viewed destinations on and

Jon Pearce from says: “We all know that Brits love holidays in Spain, they have been a favourite for years, as have holidays in Greece. There are plenty of cheap holidays available in both destinations. The other top 10 holiday destinations are the Spanish Islands (the Canaries and Balearics) as well as the Caribbean, Tunisia and Sharm el Sheikh.”

While city breaks in Barcelona top the most viewed list, and city breaks in Rome, Dublin and Venice follow, it’s evident that new cities are beginning to attract Brits too. City breaks in Prague and Krakow make the top 10 as seventh and fifth respectively.

“Many of our customers are getting more interested in the Eastern European cities, there is so much to discover and they are so different from cities in Western and Southern Europe. City breaks in Krakow are fifth most viewed on the website.

“Both Krakow and Prague are filled with historical and cultural sights, which will keep holidaymakers busy not just for a short break but for a longer holiday too.

“And people don’t necessarily want to go that far for a short break; city breaks in Dublin and Edinburgh are also very popular. Both cities are so easy to get to but still offer a change from home, a quick break from everyday life which is what city breaks are all about,” Jon Pearce explains.
