British travellers seem to be ignoring the eurozone crisis and unrest in the Middle East by continuing to book holidays in countries such as Spain, Turkey and Egypt.

Dalaman and Bodrum in Turkey come in second and fifth place respectively after Tenerife according to an analysis of bookings made in June via Multicom’s FindandBook system.

Majorca is the most booked flight-only destination and the third most popular place for package holidays, while Benidorm is the number one spot for accommodation-only bookings.

Spanish destinations feature as they always do as holidaymakers search for a great deal despite any concerns or fears they may have about the ongoing eurozone crisis.

Three Greek islands feature in the chart of most booked package destinations together with Tunisia.

Demand for Turkey and Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt is also high despite the ongoing unrest in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Las Vegas remains the most popular accommodation-only destination outside of Europe, second only to Benidorm.
