Consistently one of the most popular regions to visit amongst UK travellers, there was a huge spike in interest for holidays to the Canaries when the islands were added to the government’s travel corridor list shortly before the second lockdown was announced at the start of November, and 2021 is tipped to be a big year for this Spanish-owned area.
Located just off the west coast of Africa, the Canary Islands are baked in sunshine almost all year round, making Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and the rest ideal for an Easter, summer or winter getaway with your family, friends or loved one.
Demand is likely to be high as tourists look to make up for their cancelled or postponed 2020 breaks, so the key is to book early in order to avoid disappointment.
Madeira may not have been a place you were too familiar with prior to this year, but we’re hear to tell you why it definitely should be on your travel radar for 2021 and going forward in general.
The beautiful Portuguese island is famed for its long coastline where crystal clear waters wash upon the golden sandy beaches, as well as the array of delicious seafood on offer throughout the island. It was one of the main destinations to feature on the government’s travel corridor list during summer 2020 following a carefully devised strategy to keep residents and visitors alike safe with thorough COVID-related procedures and precautions, resulting in a large increase in popularity amongst Brits.
If you’re looking to really push the boat out and head further afield next year to perhaps make up for your disrupted 2020 holiday plans, a bustling long haul adventure could be just what the doctor ordered. You may be aware that the Summer Olympic Games were meant to have been held in the Japanese city of Tokyo this August, and its postponement means they will instead take place 12 moths later than originally scheduled.
Japan’s capital really is a hive of activity, and the Olympics were set to bring even more energy to this already bright and busy city – perfect for a long distance city break with a difference. The way of life in this part of the world is very different to anything you’re probably more accustomed to within Europe, making it a much-needed addition to your travel hitlist
It’s still currently unknown if spectators will be allowed to watch the Games, and indeed how many, though should entry be permitted for sport-mad enthusiasts, it’s certainly something you should look to do.
Similarly with the Canary Islands, there was a huge demand for mainland Spain holidays when the country was added to the government’s travel corridor list back in July, and when it was sadly taken back off, Brits began to turn their attentions to their 2021 break in this ever-popular spot.
Consistently the most-visited beach destination amongst UK travellers, all the popular resorts including Benidorm, Marbella, Torremolinos, Malaga, and city breaks destinations such as Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia have been forced to close to tourists throughout the peak period this year, which means they’ll be more keen than ever to encourage holidaymakers to return in 2021.
Go and see for yourself exactly why Brits have been going back to the various costas for more every year for some time now!
