It looks like Spain’s hopes for a record summer are well on the way to being realised and this tourism season it is the Brits who are ready with the readies. Official government figures for April showed that UK travellers spent in excess of €1 billion in Spain, making up 19.5% of the overall visitor spending figure of €5.155 billion.
Many of those travellers are regular visitors to Spain, which is a popular destination for second homes, particularly amongst British buyers. Sales and Marketing Director of leading homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Espana, comments,
“Spain offers British buyers everything they are looking for from a holiday home location – it’s a short flight from the UK, the weather is fantastic, there are more Blue Flag beaches here than anywhere else in the world and the cost of living is low compared to the UK. It’s a winning combination, particularly with pounds stretching even further thanks the exchange rate at present.”
