The UK has once again been confirmed as the world´s most important source market for Hotelbeds Group, with Spain the top destination for British travellers this year.

Majorca and Tenerife were the most popular holiday spots in Spain followed by the Algarve in Portugal, Orlando and Benidorm.

The average stay of British holidaymakers in these destinations was six nights, with only Orlando surpassing the average to reach seven nights per stay.

The main source of tourism for the UK was domestic travellers, followed by Spanish, North American, German and Chinese tourists.

The business-to-business provider’s managing director Carlos Muñoz said: “We are very satisfied to confirm that the UK is our main source market.

“The trends reflect the priorities of British travellers for their holidays – again we see the absence of some of the previously typical countries around the Mediterranean basin because of ongoing concerns about geopolitical instability – and as a company we have adapted our hotel portfolio to reflect these preferences.”
