 ==== ====We've just come back from Corfu and save 30% through Direct Line - Call for a quote - 020 31065903020 3106 5903 ==== ====8 hours on a plane is a day wasted but nowhere 2 hours away is warm enough or far enough forme to really feel like I'm on holiday. So, where I ask myself is the best holiday destination fromLondon and other parts of UK for us Brits? The ideal flight time for me is 4-5 hours and looking on the world map, there are a host of warm,luxurious and relaxing destinations within that flying time. Shame, none of the travel companieslike Best at Travel, Kuoni, Virgin Holidays, Letsgo2 or Holiday Hypermarket ever consider that.You end up searching these sites for hours with a highly confused state of mind. Having beenthrough this, I decided to post a little research for those facing the same dilemma as me. So, which are the best Holiday destinations for people flying from the UK? This listing will help you find your next holiday. First, where do us Brits go most on holiday? I went through some search records on Google andfound the following: Top Holiday Destinations (by number of travellers from UK every year) 1. Spain holidays Since Spain is the most popular holiday destination for us Brits with over amillion searches a month, I've divided Spain into regions to fully calculate its popularity. Majorca holidays - Majorca or Mallorca is heaven. I've been there myself. With a vibrant nightlifeand amazing scenic views and beaches, this largest of all Spanish island tops Spanish holidaycharts with over 300,000 monthly searches for Majorca alone. If you're looking for a party place oran opportunity to be in the quiet surrounded by nature, Majorca is your best bet.Tenerife holidays - Tenerife is the largest of the 7 canary Islands in the Atlantic ocean. Just off thecoast of Morocco, Africa, this Spanish territory commands the status of one of the most populartourist destinations around the world.

The temperature averages 20 degreescelcius throughout the year and is considered to be the best in the world by many. 320,000searches online every month.Gran Canaria holidays - Also one of the seven canary islands, the Gran Canaria is the secondlargest and second most populated after Tenerife.

become hugely popular as a holiday top spot in the last 35 years. What makes Ibiza special is theextended coast line of sandy beaches, a chilled out way of life and seclusion.

Las Vegas leads as one of USA's top holiday destinations. The city most popular for itscasinos, gambling and high lifestyle attracts us Brits in large numbers every year.New York city breaks -The world's capital city as its popularly known is the centre of all action.
