Predictions of a hot August for the UK, made in such a carefree manner in July, didn’t quite come to fruition. Instead, the month ended with bookmaker Ladbrokes simply stopping taking bets on August being the wettest on record. Enough said.
With the UK having endured another soggy summer, many individuals are turning their thoughts to sunshine overseas and checking out short-haul flight prices to see how quickly and cheaply they can transport themselves to the nearest suntrap.
Spain is a popular destination for sun seekers at any time of year. Sales and Marketing Director of leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey España, comments,
“The Spanish Costas are a perfect place for enjoying some winter sun. Easy to get to and with a low cost of living, they’re great for those looking for a second home that they can regularly fly to in order to top up their vitamin D levels. The Spanish islands are also fantastic, particularly Mallorca, which has an agreeable climate throughout the winter months.”
