Holidays to Spain, especially the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca hotspots are costing holidaymakers setting their sights on the sun of Spain up to an extra £3,000 as they book for 2021

UK holidaymakers are reporting to Global247News that they are being charged far more in cost compared to the rates of 2020.

Many of those who had planned a holiday to Spain, are rebooking and moving their holidays to 2021 avoiding the region for 2020 due to the regions being under lockdown conditions and restrictions under Spain’s state of emergency.

Customers though of the holiday companies and those just setting up direct commercial flights and hotel bookings are reporting on increases of up to 70% for the same planned holiday to Spain.

Stuart Bettey from Portsmouth England advised Global 247 News of his findings:

“I called up my holiday company to cancel this years holiday due to not feeling safe to go to Marbella in Spain, I told the agent to shift it to the same dates for 2021, everything exactly the same, I was staggered to be told it would cost me £3,000 on top of what I have already paid, I have paid it as the family are desperate for a holiday in Spain and I had already paid the balance anyway and needed to avoid cancellation fees”

Global247news have investigated the difference in pricing structures today and the results are that increases range up to 70% more in some instances.

Marbella based holiday operator told Global247news the reasons why this morning:

“Summer is going to be wiped out in 2020 tourism wise on both Spain’s Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol where most British and other European holidaymakers travel too, the basics are that the hotels stand to lose a lot of financial resource during 2020 will need to balance the books in 2021 to address the situation, the concern is though at this rate they could price Spain out he main markets for good value holidays that buyers can afford”
