Holidays in Spain are likely to be popular among British families this year, it has been suggested.
Ian Bradley, a spokesman for the Association of Independent Tour Operators, said that 2009 saw a ten per cent drop in air travel and holidays from the UK due to the recession.
However, he noted that economic confidence is now improving and people are keen to jet abroad once again.
Mr Bradley pointed out that Spain is set to be the most popular destination for Brits over the coming months.
If you're hoping to jet off on a family holiday to Spain this year, then why not take a break at La Manga Club?
A great option for families and groups is to stay in a self-catering property at the four-star Las Lomas Village complex.

Brits taking holidays in Spain have been advised not to automatically opt for the cheapest insurance policy they come across.

Mr Tipton urged holidaymakers to ensure they take out a policy that suits all of their personal needs.
