After a year of doom and gloom, Brits are keen to take holidays to Spain and other destinations in 2010, it has been claimed.
According to the Independent Association of Tour Operators, people who may have missed out on their annual break last year are now "keen to proceed with it this year".
Ian Bradley, a spokesman for the organisation, said that most families are looking for good deals that offer value for money.
He suggested that traditional hotspots such as Spain which may have suffered last year - are likely to regain popularity quickly.
Businesses are wasting millions of pounds by shunning budget airlines in favour of premium carriers, it has been claimed.
According to easyJet, companies sending employees on work-related journeys to destinations such as Spain can save around £100 on a return trip by flying on a low-fare service.
Paul Simmons, easyJet's UK general manger, said businesses are paying over the odds and shelling out too much for their flights to Spain and elsewhere.
"We encourage travel procurement managers to seriously challenge the way they go about lowering travel costs.
