TravelSupermarket reveals when and where Brits are looking to go on holiday

October and November 2020 are the most popular future departure months for British consumers, according to figures from price comparison site TravelSupermarket.

There has been a general switch to more long-haul destinations, such as Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Cancun, the Dominican Republic, Dubai, Jamaica and the Maldives.

Data also shows Brits are also looking for island escapes, with 13 of the top 20 most popular searches for the rest of the year are to island locations, compared to seven this time last year.

But the destination seeing the most package holiday price searches for departures before the end of the year is...wait for it....Benidorm.

Emma Coulthurst, travel commentator at TravelSupermarket says; "We don't know if people are just browsing, rather than thinking about booking. But it seems that even though UK travellers don't yet know when they will be able to get away next, they don't want to give up dreaming.

"Some of people's time during lockdown is being used to compare prices for exotic beach escapes or trips to some of the world's most entertainment-filled cities and October and November have become the most popular departure months to search. There is one clear anomaly though: the most-searched-for destination for holiday prices for the rest of 2020 is Benidorm. With the pubs closed at home and talk of potential cheap beer prices on the Spanish coast in future, Brits appear nostalgic for a drink or three in the sun by the sea".
