LONDON, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
With summer in full swing many British touristsare travelling to Spain on last minute holidays to take advantage of great deals.
According to leading online travel agency On the Beach, many British tourists are being tempted on last minute holidays to Spain. The company says this owes to the availability of great deals to seaside destinations in the country.
Information from Spain's statistics office shows that hotel prices have dropped 30 per cent since their peak in 2008, and that they reached their lowest point in 11 years this past March. According to On the Beach, these accommodation rates now make holidays to Spain some of the most cost-effective options available for British customers.
On the Beach's customers tend to congregate around Spain's many Blue Flag Beaches, where they can relax and enjoy the pleasant climate in gorgeous, eco-friendly surroundings. It is possible to arrange last minute holidays to these destinations through the company's website.
Alistair Daly, Marketing Director of On the Beach, says: "Last minute holidays are proving particularly popular right now as people don't want to let the summer pass them by. That said, Brits want to save as much money as possible and are therefore searching for bargains, this makes Spain an obvious destination as it offers truly fantastic value."
Daly continues: "Spain has long been a favourite with British holidaymakers, largely thanks to its excellent beaches - indeed, summer in the UK often fails to deliver much sunshine, so it is no surprise to see so many people heading to this lovely country on last minute holidays."
