Sunny destinations will be on the agenda for Londoners

It was only a matter of weeks ago that the prospect of boarding a plane and escaping to a sunny paradise was a distant fantasy, but as lockdown restrictions continue to ease this is quickly becoming a reality.

While there are those who have set their sights on staycations and trips to the local beach, for others the prospect of getting on a plane and setting off to explore new pastures will be too strong to resist.

It is still illegal to leave the UK for non-essential travel but the UK government will allow foreign travel from May 17 at the earliest through the introduction of a new traffic light system of green, amber and red destinations.

The data revealed that Portugal is the most popular destination on the travel green list, with 199,640 searches over the past year.

Although many of us are seeking sunshine when we can travel, Club Med found that Iceland is the second most popular destination on the green list with 109,040 searches and a 733 per cent search increase.

Searches for holidays in Israel was up a staggering 809 per cent from the week prior to the green list announcement.https://data.reachplc.com/211265740895966?isIframeEmbed=1

Managing director UK & northern Europe at Club Med Estelle Giraudeau said: “Brits have been waiting patiently for international travel to officially be back on the cards since the most recent UK-wide lockdown. Many people haven’t had the chance to travel out of the country since the pandemic started, with local lockdowns in some cases meaning international travel has been impossible.

“With the most recent government announcement allowing the public to finally be able to travel to other countries legally for holidays, here at Club Med we’re excited to welcome holidaymakers back to our resorts from May 17.
