France is a hugely popular holiday destination for British holiday makers, and it still remains Britain s number one holiday destination country. In particular, the Balearic Islands of Majorca, Ibiza and Menorca have been perennial big-hitter and are now added to the British government s green list. Also very popular are the Canary Islands, including La Gomera and Majorca. The beaches on the French Riviera are among the finest in Europe, and there is an ever-increasing demand for cheap holiday homes to rent during this period.
Spain, another hugely popular European holiday destination with British visitors, continues to remain a popular option. Spain has everything to offer from the fantastic beaches of the Costa Blanca to great eating and wine. The relatively high costs of living in Spain compared to other European countries means that it is a popular choice with families spending time on holiday. One of the best things about Spain is that its language is easy to learn, even for the younger generations. Spain is also a very safe country, although there is always the threat of crime and disorder, so it is important to ensure that your holiday destination is a safe one. The British weather is also very conducive to spending time outdoors, with mild winters and plenty of sunshine, making it an ideal location for sun lovers.
Finally, one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the Middle East, particularly for British travellers, are the UAE or United Arab Emirates. UAE is an Arabic speaking country which enjoys a fairly strong tourism industry. It has many tropical beaches and friendly people and there is a good selection of hotels from five star to budget. A visit to Dubai can be a fun-filled and successful experience, especially for those travelling from Europe.
