An increasing number of people will be seeking sunshine next year, with one travel company predicting a rise in the number of holidays to hot destinations.
Holidays to Thailand could be among the top trends next year as more travellers head for the sun, according to Thomson and First Choice.
The operator has set out a list of travel predictions for 2010, with warmer destinations expected to experience an increase in popularity.
Value for money will be the most important factor in British holidaymakers’ decisions when it comes to booking a trip, the company claimed.
With this in mind, Thomson and First Choice has predicted that all-inclusive breaks will be a favourite choice among those looking to stick to a holiday budget.
Over the past five years, bookings in this area have increased by 32 per cent and the travel agent expects this trend to continue.
Although South Africa will undoubtedly see a rise in its tourism market over the summer, the company has tipped June as a good month to travel elsewhere and escape the football mania.
British fans are expected to travel in large numbers to South Africa next year. England, who were drawn in a group with Algeria, Slovenia and the USA, will play their group matches in Cape Town, Rustenburg and Port Elizabeth.
