As each year rolls around travellers open their arms to new destinations and according to forecasts from Thomson 2014 is set to be no different. From beach weddings, to far flung destinations the travel firm outlines what is set to be hot in the world of travel as we chime in the New Year.
Mediterranean destinations will continue to be popular -With many of our most-loved destinations in the Mediterranean only a few hours away by plane, it’s no wonder that we return to them time and time again to get our annual dose of sunshine. In 2014 Brits are set to continue sunning themselves on the beaches of Greece, Spain and Cyprus.
Brits will begin branching out to new destinations - While many Brits love nothing more than heading back to their favourite destinations on the continent it seems that they will also be branching out far flung destinations in 2014. New fixtures on the tourist map are set to include destinations such as Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Khao Lak, Thailand; Croatia, Mauritius and Panama.
Lovebirds will head abroad for their nuptials- Instead of staying on UK shores to say their vows couples are set to take their nuptials to more exotic locations abroad, with the number of lovebirds planning a wedding in the sun set to climb in 2014. Alongside the traditional wedding months of June, July and August in the UK those heading overseas to say ‘I do’ are likely to do so in May or September.
It’s all Greek to Brits- The Greek islands are lovely at any time of the year, and while the Greek economy may still be struggling to get back on its feet following the Eurozone crisis this isn’t set to deter Brits from putting it on their 2014 holiday calendars. Greece is set to be a popular location for those looking for a healthy dose of rest and relaxation in 2014.
Long-haul cruises are set to be bang on trend- Those who want to explore all four corners of the globe, without the need to hop on flight after flight, are set to cry ‘all aboard’ and head to destinations such as the Ukraine, Montenegro and Roatan, Honduras. If you are planning to head on a cruise holiday in 2014, it is important to secure world cruise travel insurance in advance.
