Benidorm is the top destination of choice for post-lockdown Brits
Where do you think will be the top 10 holiday destinations after Coronavirus lockdown? If we are to believe what we see on Twitter and Facebook, it’s Benidorm!
Reading through our twitter account, a tweet caught my attention. It was a list of the top ten holiday destinations that appeared on the Internet search engines. Now, it doesn’t mean people are booking their autumn or winter holidays already, but, they are searching for them.
Also finding themselves amongst the runners and riders are the long haul holidays. This makes a big change from 2019 holidays when the Algarve, Majorca and Tenerife were the locations most favoured by Brits.

3. Las Vegas
6. New York
8. Dominican Republic
As you can see, according to Google, Brits are looking to go to Benidorm and Tenerife in Spain, with Majorca (Mallorca) also another favoured destination, if only at number ten. Las Vegas, Orlando and New York City are all in the top six, with the Maldives at number two and Cancun and the Dominican Republic bringing the central America / Caribbean area ahead of Dubai.
I was surprised that France wasn’t in the top 10 holiday destinations.
Spanish resorts are considering charging as little as 50p a pint of beer, to get the Brits to visit. However; it is thought that Brits will be better to look at autumn and winter holidays this year.
Non-essential travel is still advised against due to the present Corona situation. The travel restrictions will vary from country to country.
Balearics Tourism minister Iago Negueruela said: “There are countries like the United Kingdom that have taken too long to adopt containment measures and that also puts us in a different situation with respect to them.”
Other advice given to travellers is to book holidays via package deals. This way your holiday is covered should anything go wrong. Doing it yourself is risky, so, make sure you get a no-quibble money-back cancellation assurance.
Also, a flight out of the UK will be protected under EU Air Passenger Rights 261. For extra consumer protection, pay with a credit card.
So, there you have it. Google thinks Benidorm is set to be the destination of choice from the top 10 holiday destinations after Coronavirus lockdown. Good luck!
Nerja is also a great place for a holiday at any time of the year. If and when you are able, try visiting Nerja on the Spanish Costa del Sol and see what you have been missing. We hope to see you soon.
