MALAGA, 2019-Jan-29 — /Travel PR News/ — New report by Spain-Holiday.com and announced on EuropaWire today sheds some light on what bargain travellers should do and look for if they want to book the cheapest holiday in Spain this summer (2019).
The report contains 18 pages full with comparisons, graphs, insights and pricing information on holiday rental prices in Spain.
According to the report paper Spain welcomed 82.6 million international tourists in 2018, which is its 9th year of record-breaking number of visitors. At the same time, Spain overtook USA as the second most popular holiday destination in the world last year.
Spain’s popularity as summer holiday destination can be attributed to the Spain’s tropical climate, its record-breaking number of award-winning Blue Flag beaches on the Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline, its popular cities such as Barcelona, Madrid and Sevilla, its historic sites including 44 UNESCO World Heritage sites, as well as lively festivals and carnivals.
Despite its popularity 2018 can also be remembered as the year anti-tourism demonstrations against “over-tourism” took place in tourist hotspots such as Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca. Other factors that may potentially cast a shadow on Spain’s tourism through out 2019 is the uncertainty of the impact of Brexit on travellers.
Nonetheless, bookings and enquiries for Spain-Holiday.com properties have not been impacted by Brexit at all, compared to last year’s figures, according to the company.
Key takes from the report include:
- A week’s holiday in the summer 2019 from just £87 pp
(based on four sharing)
- Massive savings of up to 61% off summer peak rates
can be made in the “shoulder season” months of June
- Peak season is normally in August but even travelling
in early or late August can save you up to 28% off peak
- The less popular Costa Tropical, Costa Cálida and
Costa de Azahar are on average £160 cheaper than the
more popular, neighbouring destinations – Costa del
Sol, Costa Blanca and Costa Dorada
According to the authors of the report the first rule for booking a budget beach break is normally to avoid travelling in the school holidays. The second tip they share is to book early. January and February are the optimum times to book your summer holiday in Spain or at the very least to be thinking about it and finalising your arrangements before Easter. The off-season traveller often sees the best of a destination. With the high season crowds thinning out, cheaper flights and better deals to be found on accommodation. So timing is everything, which is the 3rd travel hack we found within the report. And the final travel tip we were able to discover by reading the report is to look further afield. Certain areas are always more popular, having been promoted as tourist destinations to the international market for many decades. However, with a little research, you can find equally stunning locations without looking too far.
The report concludes that the 3 most expensive beach destinations are Costa de la Luz, Costa Dorada and Costa del Sol with a week’s stay costs on average £1,035 in August while the best value beach destinations in peak season are Costa Calida, Costa Tropical and Costa de Almeria where a week’s stay for four people costs £722 on average.
