Spain Encourages More of us to Visit

Dec 1st, 2009 | By

Over the summer we have heard a lot about the decline in the numbers of people travelling to Spain and its islands. Nonetheless, Spain, the Balearic Islands and the Canaries are still the most popular destinations for us when we go abroad. Given all year round warm weather, the Canaries are popular throughout the year. Now the Balearics, (Ibiza, Menorca and Majorca) are trying to convince us that they are winter destinations as well.

The three main Balearic islands had a 12% drop in visitors this year from the UK and more in the case of Ireland. Now they are pushing for more of us to visit the islands when special events are being held or just to enjoy the sports facilities that have been built there. Recently, Rafael Nadal was used to push that message to the travel trade.

An Old Favourite, Ibiza

Nov 11th, 2009 | By

The UK has had a love affair with Ibiza for well over 30 years. It began as a hideaway and then the package holiday market found it. Split in appeal to those who liked the towns and the nightlife and those who provided the quieter parts, it attracts vast numbers of us. But it is still seen, primarily, as a summer destination. Ibiza is now going to try and persuade us to winter there as well just as we do in the Canaries. Part of the problem has been that there have been many fewer flights to Ibiza in the winter but Ryanair has stepped in and will provide an all round service to complement the others.
