Mirror: Greece is the word for 2016

Spain, in particular Tenerife, and Greece are Thomas Cook's most searched-for destinations for a summer holiday

Popular British newspaper Mirror reports that Greece is the word for 2016 based on early holiday bookings

According to its article, January bookings are a weather vane for the travel industry – early indicators of customer confidence and popular destinations.

Last year Paris topped Google’s travel-related searches. This year it’s dropped out of the Top 10, leaving the number one spot for perennial favourite New York (which came third last year).

Greece and Tenerife are the big winners 

While destinations that are consistently popular such as Australia and Italy remain, Turkey also fails to make the Top 10 this year.

The big winners are Greece and Tenerife .

Google’s findings are borne out by Thomas Cook. A spokesman said: “Spain, in particular Tenerife, and Greece are our most searched-for destinations for a summer holiday.”

Website popular searches

It’s the same picture with easyJet. “When it comes to beach holidays, there is a real focus on Spain and Portugal , with the most popular searches being for Tenerife, Majorca, Lanzarote, Ibiza and the Algarve,” says Mandy Round of easyJet Holidays. “ Madeira is performing more strongly than we would normally expect for this time of year. Cyprus and Malta are also doing well.”

On Monday, British Airways’ website traffic was up 10 per cent on this time last year. New York led the searches, followed by Orlando , but the biggest increase has been for Jamaica – up 335 per cent!
