Large numbers of Brits are expected to book flights to Italy, Spain and the Canary Islands this spring, ABTA – The Travel Association has said.
Frances Tuke, a spokesperson for the organisation, said that destinations on the continent are especially popular over the Easter period.
"Easter is a great time to go to places like Italy, Spain and the Canary Islands," she explained.
"These are all good for a bit of sun this time of year."
Ms Tuke went on to say that different countries have varied traditions during Easter, with Greece and its Orthodox faith taking it particularly seriously by holding a major festival.
The travel expert also suggested that more Brits could be booking cheap flights to Spain during the holiday period as it tries to compete with non-eurozone countries such as Turkey and Egypt.
