Brits search for sunshine close to home

By | Category: Travel news

Travel search site, Kayak, has revealed that Brits will be spending their summer holidays close to home and within the continent this year.

The site says that based on search data from January to May 2012, most Brits will be hunting down some sunshine on the beaches of Tenerife and Alicante. Looking at searches for breaks away during June and July, Southern coastal Spain was the top trending destination for summer with locations there doubling in popularity since 2011.

Searches for Malaga also increased by a huge 79 per cent this year compared to 2011 and the appealing locations of Dalaman and Faro were the next most popular places searched for.

Time for a trip to Tenerife?

Tenerife is a top choice for Brits this summer

The rest of the world seems to be proving less appealing for cash strapped Brits. General interest in summer travel to locations in Asia has decreased since 2011 and similarly there was an overall drop in search share to long haul destinations in North America such as New York, Los Angeles and Orlando.
