Numerous surveys and polls have revealed that despite the credit crunch, Britons are unwilling to sacrifice their hard-earned trips abroad.
However, there are a number of steps which holidaymakers can take to save money.
According to travel site GeckoGo, holidaymakers should chat to locals and get inside information on the best places to shop and eat.
Using public transport or cycling and walking is also a great way to save money and for guests staying at La Manga Club, there is no better way to explore the surrounding countryside.
Tourism officials in the Spanish region of Andalucia have announced plans aimed at increasing visitor numbers.

While golfing on one of the three world-class courses at La Manga Club, one of the last things one would like to do is to call home.

However, there are always advantages to being reachable to loved ones back in the UK - which is why moneysupermarket.com has been comparing the best roaming tariffs offered by mobile operators.
Holidaying in La Manga Club is favoured by many holidaymakers due to the fact that the resort caters for almost all of their needs.
Nevertheless, before heading abroad for a festive holiday in Spain, families should make sure they do not leave one thing in particular to chance - insurance.
Making the recommendation, Marks and Spencer Money also revealed that 49 per cent of those who do take out a policy do not know what level of cover they have.
The risk is higher for those who do not book their breaks in one package but choose to pay separately for different components of their holiday.
British people holidaying at La Manga Club could be among the safest drivers there, according to their European counterparts.
According to a survey of the continent's drivers by swiftcover.com, one-third of Europeans believe Britons are the best - which they might like to prove by renting a car in Murcia.
Not only do the UK's motorists come out on top in terms of perception among their peers, but they also appear to be the most safety conscious.

However, just six per cent of those surveyed said they would consider giving up their holidays as a result of the credit crunch.

A golf resort may seem like an unusual wedding setting, but the La Manga Club in Murcia promises couples and their guests everything they could want for their perfect wedding reception.
