THIS year has seen Brits visiting Spain in higher numbers and spending more after 2018 saw a disappointing summer for the country’s tourism sector.
Both visitor numbers and spending were up in the first two months of 2019… And indeed for six months in a row.
Government figures revealed a total of 4.4 million visitors visited Spain in February representing a 3.8% increase on last year.
The UK was once again the main tourist market for Andalucia, as well as the Canaries and was the second most important for the Balearics.
The average daily spend of a Brit was also 7.2% higher than a year ago at a decent €124 per person.
