All-inclusive resort operator Club Med is seeing double-digit sales increases at many of its European resorts for summer 2011.   

The operator said the results were driven by the continued popularity of all-inclusive holidays at the higher end of the market as holidaymakers seek to control their budget.

UK visitors to the Club Med resort of Beldi in Turkey were up 59%, Da Balaia in Portugal up 54% and Napitia in Italy up 49%.

A survey undertaken by YouGov on behalf of Club Med UK of 2,000 people last year showed that almost 60% of Brits intended to spend the same amount or more holidays in 2011 than in 2010.  

Over 40% of respondents said that going on an all-inclusive holiday was less stressful than booking flights and accommodation separately.
