1. Spain

If you’re travelling from the UK,, then Spain may seem an obvious choice. But even if you have been to the land of paella and sangria before, there are still plenty of places to visit and sights to see. It is hardly surprising that Spain has been a firm favourite amongst British holidaymakers for decades and is high up there on the UK’s most popular holiday destinations list. The Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Menorca, and Mallorca are amongst the big hitters, but trips to the Canary Islands are just as popular.

2. France

Luckily for us Brits, the beauty of France is right on our doorstep, and just a short journey across the English Channel is the excitement of Paris and the beauty of the beaches of Corsica. From ski holidays in the French Alps during the winter to luxury villas in the Cote d’Azur in the summer, France has something for everyone. If you’re travelling with children, then a trip to Disneyland Paris is an obvious choice, with plenty to offer both adults and kids.

3. Portugal

From great food, picturesque countryside, and historic cities, it is hardly surprising that Portugal is one of our top 10 travel destinations. While The Algarve is a firm favourite amongst tourists, if you’re looking for a bit of a hidden gem, then we’d recommend a trip to Alentejo. Located south of Lisbon, you’ll find an abundance of white-sand beaches and medieval towns.

4. Italy

Delicious cuisine, charming people, and ancient culture. What more could you ask from a trip away? There are so many wonderful and exciting cities to visit, from Florence to Venice and Rome. If you love a beach holiday, you won’t be disappointed with the 500 miles of coastline around Puglia in South Italy. You’ll also find some of the most picturesque beaches in Sardinia with charming hotels and glamorous villas. If you want to explore some of the most famous Italian sites such as Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, and Capri then the breathtaking Amalfi Coast makes for the perfect base.

5. Greece

If you’re looking for simplicity, good food, and picturesque views for your next holiday, then you should definitely make Greece your next travel destination. From hot sun to friendly tavernas and whitewashed villas, Greece has a rich history, and there are so many locations to choose from. Crete is one of the largest and most popular islands and a great option if you want to rent a family villa or stylish house.

6. Turkey

Turkey has become increasingly popular in recent years and is an affordable getaway destination whether you’re travelling solo, as a family, or with a travel partner. Its endless Aegean coastline provides some of the finest beaches in Europe, so if you are looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy your surroundings. But don’t worry if you are looking for somewhere quieter, as smaller resorts are just as picturesque, including Fethiye and Kalkan.

7. Croatia

Croatia is well known for its pristine coastline and is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It has become an increasingly popular travel destination since the historic city of Dubrovnik was the main filming location for the fictional city of King’s Landing in Game of Thrones. But you don’t have to be an avid Game of Thrones fan to enjoy everything the country offers. There are many beautiful resorts that you can visit across the coastline, as well as islands just off the coast. We’d recommend a trip to the beautiful Hvar, which can be reached by a ferry trip from Split.

8. USA

Are you looking for a long-haul destination? Are you keen to tick some locations off your travel bucket list? Well, the USA has an unrivalled diversity of landscapes, including delicious cuisine, friendly people, and some of the most iconic cultural sights in the world. From walking the streets of Manhattan, New York, to a road trip on Route 66, you can get the full American experience wherever you travel in the US.

9. Thailand

Known as the ‘land of smiles’, Thailand caters to every kind of traveller. From backpackers to couples’ getaways, there is something for everyone. Thailand’s appeal is obvious: beautiful beaches, picturesque countryside, friendly people, and sensational food. What more could you ask for? Phuket is one of the most popular destinations, but locations such as Koh Samui and Koh Phangan are also becoming popular.

10. Maldives

If you’re looking for pristine waters, waterside villas, and luxury, then a trip to the Maldives is essential. Whether you want to relax on the beaches, enjoy the extensive range of water sports available out there or immerse yourself in the Maldivian culture, a trip to the Maldives offers the adventure of a lifetime.
