Most Brits to Holiday in Europe in 2013

This post features HomeAway.co.uk.

It seems that although we often dream of jetting off an exotic holiday, when it comes to taking our annual holiday, most of us rarely venture out of Europe. The UK’s leading holiday rental site, HomeAway.co.uk has revealed that 90% of their top ten 2013 holiday destinations are located within the UK and Europe.

Erica Chang, Regional Director for HomeAway.co.uk, knows that the uncertain economy plays a big part in our holiday booking decisions. She said, “Our most recent data has shown that in 2013 British holiday makers are generally choosing to take a break in the UK or Europe. Whilst we offer a wide range of accommodation globally, there is no denying that costs are on people’s minds when it comes to booking a holiday and staying closer to home can bring down prices.”

HomeAway.co.uk also attributes this trend to holidaymakers wanting to avoid the hassle and fear of flying, along with the rise in flight costs and the expense of school holiday travel. Here at Find A Cheap Holiday, we also know that holidays closer to home are often cheaper and easier to organise than long haul holidays. So when we start getting itchy feet, taking a European holiday this year beats waiting for and organising a bigger holiday for next year.


Enjoy city life with HomeAway.co.uk's London flat

When it comes to holidaying on home shores, it’s not all about beaches. HomeAway.co.uk’s findings show that London is still enjoying the tourism boost that the Olympics brought. Their second most popular holiday rental is a one bedroom flat in London’s East End, which starts at just £425 per week. Spanish beaches are sunshine appear to be the main attraction in Europe with with holiday villas in Majorca, Torrevieja and Javea also making the top 10 list.

The main big holiday that we’re splurging on this year is the once in a lifetime treat of Disneyland. HomeAway.co.uk’s most popular Orlando holiday villa has room for all of the family and is just down the road from major tourist attractions including Sea World and Universal Orlando. With all of this on offer from just £405 per week, it’s no wonder that it climbed up to 4th place in the list.
