Canary Island villa holidays 'offer excellent value' - 15 Jan 2009
The British love affair with Spain and the Canary Islands is far from over, despite the unfavourable exchange rate between the euro and the pound.
That is the opinion of Ignacio Vasallo, director of the Spanish Tourist Office in the UK, who believes that villa holidays in Spain and the Canary Islands will remain popular with British travellers.
"The Canary Islands in particular continue offer the UK traveller value together with an average year-round temperature of 71 degrees F and everything from adventure, to nature, great hotels and superb wine and food. All at just over four hours away," he commented.
Spain has always represented excellent value for money for British holidaymakers and that will not change, Mr Vasallo added.
In other travel news, a recent study by the Association of British Travel Agents found that almost half of Brits think a holiday is essential to get though the doom and gloom of the credit crunch.
