Expatriates and other visitors to foreign countries are increasingly travelling to the ‘Mett’ resorts of Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia and Turkey for their annual holiday, according to cheapflights.co.uk.
Nadine Hallak of the flight comparison website said she tended to agree with research from The Co-operative Travel, which found that European Mediterranean destinations have seen an 11.6 per cent cumulative fall in bookings while the Mett has experienced an increase of 23.4 per cent.
‘These Mett destinations offer year-round sunshine and excellent value for money, not to mention unrivalled culture and history,’ Ms Hallak commented.
‘Tourists are tempted by the fantastic offers available, particularly at the Red Sea resorts.’
She noted that expats and other jet-setters, particularly those from the UK, love their beach holidays, so it is unsurprising that sun-drenched hotspots such as Turkey, Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco are popular.
The Co-operative Travel research predicted that Mediterranean resorts will no longer be the number one destination for UK holidaymakers by the end of 2011.
