Prior to that the top spot was occupied by the US with 43.53%, with Spain in second with 20.86%.

Travelgate analysed more than 20,000 reservations and 3 billion daily internet searches, from 300 hotel websites and 15 airlines worldwide.

Andalucia is Spain’s most popular region, with 10.78% of all hotel reservations worldwide.

That figure represents 31.66% of Spanish hotel bookings.

That’s followed by the Canary Islands with 16.7% of the reservations, the Balearic Islands with 13.01% and Catalunya with 9.69%.

Regarding the nationality of tourists making hotel reservations, according to Travelgate 80% of these are Spaniards, followed by 7.7% from the UK and 5.2% from Portugal.

The profile of tourists has also changed, as now the majority of reservations is from couples, with 44% of the total, whereas before it was families.
