British holidaymakersIn the last 20 years, the amount of British holidaymakers travelling to Spain has almost doubled. According to figures released by the Office for National Statistics, Spain is the top UK holiday destination, with 12.9 Britons visiting the country last year, up from 6.9 million in 1996.

The British holidaymakers are rejecting Egypt, Tunisia and Kenya due to security fears. France has also seen its visitor numbers over the past 20 years drop from six million to 5.6 million last year. The explosion in budget airlines offering cheap flights all over Europe might have also contributed to France’s decline in popularity. Belgium and Turkey, which have seen devastating terror attacks, have also dropped out of the top ten.

Brits are also opting for shorter breaks. Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn – who holidayed in Italy and Croatia, respectively – are bang on trend as both countries are enjoying a British tourism boom. The UAE has seen the largest increase in the number of trips by British tourists in the past two decades.
