Orlando top destination for Brits
May 21st, 2014 by elisa

Brits just can’t get enough of the sunshine state of Florida, with Orlando the particular holiday favourite for this summer according to recent analysis.

The metasearch website momondo.co.uk analyses its UK flight search data from the last three months, for travel during the UK holiday period and a departure date between June and August 2014 and came up with Brits’ top summer destinations.

Orlando was the clear winner, proving the theme-park capital and family-friendly atmosphere is something that keeps it at the top of our summer holiday list.

The website also studied the most popular places in the world according to data from 20 of the UK’s biggest airports to create each airport’s “Top 5” summer destinations. Orlando appeared in seven out of 20 of these airport lists.

Other firm favourites were Spanish destinations of Alicante and Malaga, coming in third and fourth respectively on overall most-searched destinations for summer 2014. Both also appeared in the top five for 13 out of 20 UK airport lists. 

“It’s encouraging to see Orlando in favour with Brits this year as a popular place to visit over the summer holidays, with its excellent activities and parks for the whole family. And long-haul destination New York was also popular this summer too – at a time when the climate is warm.

“It seems the traditional Spanish summer break though will always appeal to Brits, with short-haul flights and a practical sun guarantee. It is interesting to see Turkey hot on the heels of Spain however, with Dalaman coming in fifth most-popular destination overall. Sizzling hot weather and great deals on this up and coming destination no doubt will be drawing the crowds in this year,” says Julie Pedersen, Spokesperson for momondo.

An extremely popular holiday destination, Puerto Banus is to the southwest of Marbella, on the Costa del Sol.

An excellent location for a varied holiday full of activity or relaxation depending on your want. It has a stunning port full of luxury boats and yachts, a popular haunt for the rich and famous. There is a play area for children, a huge choice of restaurants and bars, shopping and variety of beaches to visit.

A split persona of a place; relaxed with a great cafe culture during the day, and buzzing with life and music in the evenings when the clubs open.

Catch cheap flights to Malaga Airport from the UK and either get a regular bus, hire a car or get a taxi to Puerto Banus.

Beautiful pool

How about this pretty poolside villa between Puerto Banus and Estepona, sleeps 4 with master bedroom with balcony looking over the pool and twin bedroom with single beds, an ample family bathroom and large living area with open plan living room, dining room and kitchen. Double doors lead out onto a private sun terrace which overlooks one of the pools and gardens.

Smart and comfortable living room

This villa currently has some availability in August, but if you can’t find the date you want, then we have plenty of properties in the Puerto Banus area and across the Costa Del Sol.
