Spain resilient against falling visitor numbers

11 Nov 2009

Brits planning a European stag weekend may be interested to hear that Spain has been largely unaffected by the recession in terms of visitor numbers.

According to the Spanish Tourist Office, the country has remained resilient in comparison to other eurozone nations.

Promotions executive Paco Gutierrez said that most people have a familiarity with Spain that will make them more likely to return as it is seen as less of a gamble than other destinations.

"There is a segment for budget holidays. The tour operators are pushing to get back business, so you can get good offers for package tours," he added.

His comments follow a Trivago study, which found that Madrid is currently offering reasonable hotel prices at £87 per night for a standard double room.

This represents a 13 per cent drop on October's rates and a six per cent year-on-year fall.

It also compares to an average of £97 in French Riviera resort Cannes and £125 in the capital Paris.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19455728-ADNFCR
