The most popular summer holiday spots for British travellers are the Mediterranean beach resorts. With typically toasty weather, departures from airports all over the UK and flying times of no more than four hours, it’s easy to see why we flock year after year to this summer playground.
2015 holiday deals are already on sale to big hitters such as the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza) and the mainland Spanish resorts areas on the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca (for Benidorm holidays), Costa Brava and Costa Dorada.
Turkey has a swathe of resorts to choose from, and nearby Greece offers both island and mainland breaks for your 2015 package holiday. There’s Nice on the Côte d’Azur, in France, and many more tempting spots on the French Mediterranean coast.
Med Islands such as Malta, Cyprus, Sardinia and Sicily make great choices, and the North African resorts in Tunisia are popular, too.
Beyond the Med, another top summer holiday spot is the Algarve, in Portugal. Off the African coast, the Canary Islands – Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria – are big summer draws. In Egypt, the Red Sea resorts of Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh are just as busy in summer as in the winter.
Other great choices for 2015 holidays include Dubai, Thailand, the Mexican Caribbean resorts around Cancun, Cuba and, of course, Florida with the theme park excitement of Orlando.
If a city break is more your thing, classics such as Paris, New York and Venice lead the pack, or perhaps somewhere such as Istanbul or Amsterdam is more your cup of tea.
