July 5, 2012
Summer is here and many of you have already chosen the destination for your next holiday. Is it the beach? The mountains? An island? Your own country? Across the world?
Would you like to know which are the most popular destinations this year and the changes compared to 2011? Check out the info-graphic below!
Spain, the most popular holiday destinations for the British
In the same position as last year, Spain is still the number 1 summer destination for the British. Without major changes since last year, Italy and France are the second and third most popular destinations during the summer months.
We imagine the sandy beaches and perfectly blue skies might have something to do with it
Turkey, the surprise of the year
Going up 7 places Turkey seems to be the sixth most popular destination for the British, followed by Ireland and Germany. Another surprise is Iceland, which used to be the 7th most popular destination in 2011, only to disappear completely from the top 10 in 2012.
