Bumper year forecast for Spanish tourism as British and Russian holidaymakers shun Tunisia and Egypt following last year’s attacks
Gone are the days when the British holidaymaker had to get up early to beat a German towel to the sunlounger. Now it seems it’s the Russians we will be rubbing shoulders with in this year’s favoured holiday destinations.
January is the peak booking time for holidays and there are strong signs in the industry that we will be spending more on getting away from it all this year. The top destination looks set to be Spain, both for Britons and for Russians, who will be seeking sunny beaches away from Egypt after a Russian airliner was brought down there last September.
