Holiday searches to Spain have slumped by 80% since the government re-imposed quarantine restrictions on travellers returning from the country.
Demand for holidays this summer has shifted to Greece, followed by Turkey, Italy, Malta and Croatia, according to latest TravelSupermarket data.
Prices dropped by 28% to Greece and Turkey and 52% to Italy in the fortnight since the government announcement on Spain over the previous two weeks.
Rates are as low as £116 per person with On the Beach for seven nights bed and breakfast in Kavos in Corfu departing from Luton on September 15.
Demand also continues for 2021 package holidays, particularly April and May 2021 departures.
TravelSupermarket travel commentator Emma Coulturst said demand had shifted “significantly” towards alternative destinations to Spain.
She added: “My advice would be that if you’re looking for a holiday, packages give you that gold plated protection.
“If the FCO advice was to change to non-essential travel, then you are entitled to your money back for the package within 14 days. Check worldometer or a similar site for Covid levels.
“The low Covid levels in Greece, Turkey and Italy are why the countries are proving popular destinations for UK holidaymakers to compare package holiday prices to.”
