ABTA: Egypt and Dubai picked out as top Easter destinations

Brits looking to book a last-minute getaway for the Easter holiday period can expect a great bargain in Egypt, while flights to Dubai are also expected to be popular.

This is according to travel association ABTA, which has reported a boost in bookings to several short and mid-haul destinations.

Spain remains the most popular British destination, but those looking for cheap flights and affordable holidays are advised to consider Egypt and Tunisia, the organisation said.

Temperatures in the late twenties and guaranteed sunshine are to be expected in the North African nations.

John McEwan, chairman of ABTA, said that the extra bank holiday for the Royal Wedding has significantly boosted bookings.


“Easter is the traditional curtain raiser to the summer. I am delighted to see that so many of our customers are taking advantage of the extra days off by either heading overseas or taking a break closer to home,” he said
