Ski bookings are up this winter
As the UK turns colder and we turn our attention to winter holidays, a sunshine break remains the most popular for British holidaymakers, although skiing has shown a significant increase in popularity already this season.
Fifteen percent of holidaymakers are planning a skiing trip – that’s a whopping 5% up on last year, according to a Winter Holiday Trends 2013/14 survey conducted by ABTA (the Association of British Travel Agents).
Forty percent are planning a winter sun break – just a 1% increase.
Espace Killy in France is the most popular ski resort at the moment for British holidaymakers, closely followed by Trois Vallées in France; Sauze d’Oulx in Italy; and the Austrian resorts, Kitzbühel and St Anton.
And, oh yes, … in case you’re interested, top of the sunshine list is the Canary Islands, followed by Greece, Malta, Tunisia and, further afield, the Caribbean, Mexico and Dubai!
