Brits to Spend £153 Billion on Holidays this Year

06th April 2011 • Posted in Winter Sun

It is estimated that Brits will spend a combined total of £153 billion on holidays this year, with bargain-friendly destinations like Spain, the Balearics and the Canary Islands proving popular.

The same survey also indicated that eight in ten Brits will enjoy three breaks throughout the year, spending £700 each time.

A Very Different Holiday Market 

These findings paint a very different picture of the holiday market from two years ago when the recession forced many people to stay at home. Spain was one of the worst hit areas having enjoyed a strong tourism industry for years.


It is now slowly starting to emerge as the leading holiday destination. One of the reasons for this is the choice of cheap flights to different areas, particularly along the southern coast where all the Costas are.


The diversity of Spain is such that it is possible to enjoy all kinds of different holidays in one region. However, it is thought that the lure of the beautiful beaches and promises of sun-blessed relaxation is what brings holidaymakers to the country.


Brits interested in getting away for some sunshine will find cheap flights to Spain, including routes to Alicante, Barcelona and Malaga, available with Jet2.com.
