British families hoping to jet abroad and soak up some sunshine this summer may wish to consider booking a holiday in Spain.
Sarah Munro, head of travel services at the Post Office, suggested that the country is likely to prove popular with UK travellers this year.
"With sterling beginning to strengthen against the euro and discounting in many popular eurozone resorts we expect these to do well in the coming months particularly destinations that can be reached by ferries rather than air," she commented.
Ms Munro added that holidays in both Spain and Portugal can represent excellent value for money due to the relatively low cost of food and drink there.
A third of Brits taking holidays to Spain and other popular destinations this summer are not planning to follow the World Cup.

Britons jetting off on holiday to Spain over the coming months have been advised to purchase travel insurance before leaving the UK.
Erica Nelson, a spokesperson for Direct Line, said that although insurance did not cover many people left stranded by the recent ash cloud crisis, it can provide protection against many other things, such as medical repatriation.
"It's one of those things that I always recommend to people that they should get because it is so inexpensive, especially if you get an annual policy," she explained.
Travel insurance also provides cover for lost luggage and a wide range of other things, Ms Nelson added.
Brits planning to take a holiday in Spain have been advised to shop around in order to get the best currency deals.

"UK tourists who don't check the rate offered for the currency they need could end up with less money to spend on holiday," she explained.
