British people are not letting the current economic situation stop them going to Spain, an expert has insisted.
Organisations such as Abta - The Travel Association and Lastminute.com have been among those that have recently observed a surge in the number of people booking trips outside the euro zone.
This has been partly attributed to the ongoing slide of sterling against the single European currency.
However, Lee Hayhurst of Travel Trade Gazette has noted that while the pound remains much weaker than the euro, Spain is not as badly valued as people may think.
In fact, he told BBC News that many service providers in the country are offering a variety of discounts.
"They are reducing prices to reflect the fact it's costing us more," he commented.
Mr Hayhurst added that Spain is still "massive" as a tourist destination, and is a place people know and trust.
