News: Spain 'usurping' the US

Tue, 22 Jan 08

Flights to Spain are ahead of flights to the US in terms of attracting retirees, it has been reported...

Les Calvert, director of Property-Abroad.com, noted: “The US cannot compete with the European destination in terms of UK tourism, with Spanish holidays being a favourite among Britons. Spain is far more appealing to the British market.

"It's still obviously a long way from the favourites like Spain - it is in the top five while America's in the top ten. Managing director Lucy Ace added that this combined with the "child-friendly culture" Spain is a "winning formula".
