A SUMMER holiday bookings bonanza is on the cards for Spain this year according to the UK’s leading travel trade association.
ABTA’S Travel Trends 2016 report has pointed to a surge in Britons heading to the Med this year.
The improving British economy, a strong pound and the threat of terrorist activity elsewhere has boosted holidaymakers’ numbers.
The report states: “Western Mediterranean destinations, in particular Spain, are set for a bumper year with bookings for summer 2016 tracking ahead of previous years as 2015 comes to a close.”
The study also praised new laws brought into Magaluf in 2015 that are helping to gentrify the notorious Balearic Island destination.
