Although soaring prices are thought to have affected holiday bookings, travel experts said Britons were still keen for a summer holiday.
Travel Republic boss, Antonio Felliono, said there had been growth in two week holiday bookings from British tourists.
He said: “Brits are clearly looking to make sure that they get the best value they can by booking two-week holidays, rather than one week, but foregoing their mini breaks.
“It’s typical of what we tend to see during times of economic downturn, but their yearly holiday remains sacrosanct.”
Hays Travel said its top destination was Spain with Tenerife and Lanzarote particularly popular.
Turkey, Portugal and Greece were also high up on British tourists’ wishlists with Italy another popular destination.
