Spain 'is tops' among British holidaymakers this spring

Spain is proving to be the most popular destination for people booking flights to Europe this spring, Holiday Extras has said.

The southern European country was the most popular holiday destination in 2007, with 27 percent of British holidaymakers booking a trip to one of Spain’s numerous destinations, figures from the Office for National Statistics revealed.

Recent research from Holiday Extras found that 18 percent of Brits would still choose to book flights to Europe this spring, while a further 13 percent said they would prefer to travel to a long-haul destination.

Holiday Extras’ managing editor Mike Whiting said that Spain is "the top destination".

"Spain is tops, then [it’s] France, America, Portugal, Turkey and Egypt," he commented.

"They are the big players and within that, Malaga is a big player."

According to a recent survey by the holiday company, almost half (48 percent) of people said that their choice for a spring holiday would be "anywhere with warm weather".

Data from Skyscanner released today (April 23rd) revealed that London is the most popular flight destination for Brits travelling on the May Day holiday weekend, while Malaga is the second-most popular.
