significant increase in all-inclusive breaks to Tenerife and self-catering
Fuerteventura trips.
Holidaymakers from

beaches that a trip to
Turkey
has to offer this summer. It is no surprise that
holidays to Bodrum and Dalaman have witnessed an increase in bookings this
year, with a plethora of restaurants to suit all tastes, coupled with stretches of
long golden beaches and turquoise blue sea.
Party people from the

are enjoying a livelier summer, hitting the bars
and clubs on trips to Ibiza, the clubbing capital of
Europe
. Booking data from On
the Beach shows a massive 32% of its holidaymakers departing from East
Midlands Airport are jetting off to enjoy a holiday in the Balearic Islands.

advantage of the cheap holidays in the Algarve this year, choosing the ever-

Holidaymakers flying from

Greece
and its breathtaking islands this summer. Businessmen and women
earning the big bucks in the City, are splashing out on luxury all-inclusive
retreats in Santorini, whereas up and coming interns are heading to the popular

The research also shows that the popular Spanish Costas' have won the hearts
of the Scots this summer, with many booking cheap holidays to the Costa del
Sol to enjoy some much-needed sun.
Alistair Daly, Marketing Director at On the Beach comments; "It's interesting to
witness the clear correlation between a city and its favoured holiday
destination. With

surprise to see people all over the country escaping the British weather and
heading to sunnier climes."
