Top destinations revealed for New Year travellers

With little more than a month left on the countdown to the New Year, Skyscanner has revealed a list of the most popular party destinations for UK travellers.

According to the flight search website, the top overseas destination for those looking to toast the New Year in style is Geneva.

It explained that the destination is immensely popular as a ski hub in the Alps, adding that Geneva contains more than 100 swanky resorts in which holidaymakers can celebrate. Meanwhile, there will be parties and concerts in the streets of the Old Town.

The Swiss city is joined by an impressive cast of other European destinations, including Malaga, Paris Alicante and Tenerife.

Amsterdam and Barcelona also made the top-ten list, which featured two cities from across the UK - London and Edinburgh - as well as the Irish capital of Dublin.

Prague, Berlin, Madrid and Rome were also identified as popular haunts for travelling revellers, while Bergerac in France, Verona in Italy and Poznan in Poland were identified as the cities least likely to host any Brits.

Recently the Moroccan city of Rabat was highlighted by architectural firm Gensler as a great place to go on holiday for those looking outside Europe.
