Book a bargain break or luxury holiday in your favourite Spanish destination

 IT’S our favourite holiday destination offering endless sunshine, sandy beaches and sangria – and we’re just as keen to return after the pandemic.

A report by ABTA this week confirmed Spain was the top destination Britons are desperate to revisit when travel is possible again. The report found that many were keen to focus on their traditional favourite destinations.

But with a lot of families having missed out on a break in 2020, many plan to splash more cash on their getaway in 2021.

While there remains uncertainty about our ability to travel after Brexit, these countries are desperate for us to return. Lisa Minot offers you inspiration for both bargain breaks and luxury holidays in your favourite Spanish destinations.
