This trend has been compounded with the recent troubles throughout the Middle East, with large numbers of tourists choosing to visit the more traditional Mediterranean destinations over the break. A recent report from Travel Weekly has stated that over 2 million Britons are expected to head overseas through the Easter break, which Spain now being number one destination.
Amongst the most popular Spanish destinations are the Canary Islands and the Costa del Sol, whilst a large number of people are also looking for city breaks in the more popular destinations including Barcelona, Madrid and Seville. Outside of Spain, other popular destinations include Paris, Rome, Amsterdam and New York.
