Multicom's FindandBook system showed Tenerife was the top package holiday destination among Britons in June, closely followed by the Turkish resorts of Dalaman and Bodrum in second and fifth position respectively.
With demand for the Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheikh also remaining high, Britons are advised to make sue they arrange

Majorca was the third most-popular package holiday destination in June, while the ever-popular island was named the most booked flight-only destination.
John Howell, managing director for Multicom, said: "The data revealed some very interesting trends and information that is very useful to agents.
"The fact that the eurozone crisis and ongoing unrest in the Middle East does not appear to be a deterrent for British holidaymakers underlines the resilience of UK travellers."
