MANCHESTER, England, September 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
-According to On the Beach, Cyprus is proving to be very popular as Brits start booking their winter trips abroad-
On the Beach, the UK's leading online travel agency, say that Cyprus is expected to be amongst their more popular destinations this winter. Many On the Beach customers have already booked trips to the island nation, and the company expects this trend to continue as more and more people start planning their upcoming jaunts abroad.
Cyprus is a gorgeous, warm island in the Mediterranean. With beautiful beaches, comfortable hotels and a collection of interesting historical locations it has proven increasingly popular with tourists looking for a relaxing, sunny holiday.
The Cyprus Tourism Organisation has come up with similar findings, and they report that bookings for this coming winter are up 29 per cent when compared to last year. On the Beach say this is particularly impressive given the longstanding popularity of holidays to Cyprus.
Alistair Daly, Marketing Director of On the Beach, comments: "We have seen a very significant surge of interest in holidays to this great part of the world. Yet, this should come as no surprise as this country is one of the premiere tourist spots in the Mediterranean: it boasts great beaches, relatively un-crowded resorts and the perfect climate. There really is very little not to like about a holiday in Cyprus.
"In general, we are seeing people look towards the winter season as the weather in Britain cools, and many begin to think about their plans in December and January. Now is a great time to book a budget holiday as there are lots of great deals around, and it's possible to secure places in the most popular hotels and resorts."
