5 reasons why the Costa Blanca in 2012 will be the number 1 destination for British tourists
- The climate
- Proximity to Great Britain
- Cheap flights
- Value for money
- Costa Blanca wants the business
The World Travel Market is the 3rd largest tourism exhibition in the world and is of great importance to the region being that over 2 million British tourists flock to the area each year and over 85% repeat their trip again.
Tourism in Costablanca generates an astonishing 1 billion euro every year of which 50% is thanks to the British tourist. (Figures provided by Alberto Fabra, President of the Generalitat)
Alberto Fabra recently substituted the position of Francisco Camps as the community’s president earlier this year and his presence at the WTM gives a clear message to the importance that British tourism has in the Valencia region.
Even though the Brits are scheduled to reduce their holiday plans for the next few years (Until 2015) it is said that those that do choose to holiday abroad , the vast majority will choose Costa Blanca and the Valencia region as their number 1 destination.
This year so far over 11 million British tourists visited Spain and 20% visited the Costa Blanca. The most popular destination was Benidorm however there was also a smaller but significant figure of individuals and small groups that visited the area in search for the fabulous golf deals the area has to offer.
