Tenerife will be one of the top ten most popular holiday destinations in 2009, data released recently suggests.
According to the figures, released by travel search website Skyscanner.com, Tenerife is among the top ten most searched for travel destinations for holidays in 2009.
The popular Spanish island has long been a holiday hotspot for Brits looking for sea, sand and year-round sun and this trend looks set to continue in the New Year.
Barry Smith, Skyscanner.com's co-founder, said: "It's still early days for 2009 bookings, but already we can see that British people don't want to give up their beach holidays, even when times are tough.
"This year, it's all about making your money go as far as possible, which is why Spain remains an extremely popular destination for British travellers."
Recently, figures released by the UK airport operator BAA revealed that Tenerife was one of the top ten most popular destination airports for Scottish travellers in 2008.
