Denise Bartlett, UK Public Relations, said: “The “staycation” appears to be a popular choice this Valentine’s Day, with many UK travellers choosing to stay in the UK. Out of the ten most searched for destinations between the 13th and 15th February, the top eight were located in the UK, with Paris and Dublin taking positions nine and ten, respectively.

Out of the top ten most searched for overseas destinations, it is interesting to note that Dublin, Amsterdam and Barcelona are more popular than Rome, Bruges and Venice, which are usually perceived as “Romantic” destinations popular on Valentine’s Day. With prices up by a staggering 126 per cent in Venice, perhaps it is time UK travellers begin looking for cheaper alternatives.”
