Spain 'more accessible' to holidaymakers
26 January 2009 11:08
Low cost airline expansion has made previously hard to reach places in Spain more accessible to holidaymakers, it has been claimed.
Louise Hall, business director of Primelocation.com, said that many British holidaymakers were discovering new parts of Spain because of low cost holidays and flights, with some becoming so captivated they choose to buy a second property there.
"Barcelona and the Costa Brava region as a whole have become more popular with UK buyers in the last two to three years. Inland Murcia has again proven popular," she said.
Ms Hall says that Mallorca in particular has been a find for UK tourists.
"Mallorca has experienced huge popularity in recent years and has become an expensive jewel," she commented.
The attraction of Spain as a British tourist destination has even caused British Airways to enter the low cost market with the major carrier introducing a range of destinations in the spring.
Experts say that anybody who books a low cost holiday should be adequately covered by travel insurance to prevent a mishap turning into a high cost nightmare.
