LONDON, March 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
-Data collected by dealchecker.co.uk shows that when it comes to taking advantage of this year's extra four day weekend, Brits have their eyes cast to Spain-
dealchecker.co.uk, a leading online holiday specialist, say that many Brits are already thinking about how they will be spending the additional long weekend afforded to them by the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Customer enquiry trends for visitors to dealchecker.co.uk reveal that Brits are looking to use their extra time off to escape to sunnier climes, with flights to Malaga proving to be the most popular enquiry for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend. dealchecker.co.uk say that having an additional long weekend to play with could be making Brits more adventurous about where they spend their short breaks.
Mark Attwell, MD of dealchecker.co.uk, comments: "Malaga has been an enduringly popular holiday destination for many years, but on long weekends the tradition for Brits has often been to staycation. We here at dealchecker.co.uk think that the four additional days off in a row this year, brought about by the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, could be tempting Brits into jetting abroad rather than staying at home."
Although it was the stand-out destination for customer enquiries, Malaga isn't the only Mediterranean destination Brits are eyeing up for their long weekend. Flights to Faro, Alicante, Majorca, Tenerife, Bodrum and Ibiza also proved popular with visitors and dealchecker.co.uk say this could mark the start of a new trend for British travellers.
Attwell continues: "The dwindling cost of flights to Mediterranean destinations has been inviting more and more holidaymakers to head to the Med for their holidays, from long two-week stays to shorter jaunts for some weekend sunshine. As prices for flights and accommodation continue to drop, we foresee that more travellers will be choosing to spend their long weekends in exciting overseas destinations rather than staycationing."
