Leading travel destinations visited from the United Kingdom (UK) 2019

Spain is the most visited country by residents of the United Kingdom, with around 18.1 million visits made in 2019. Outbound tourism from the UK has been increasing each year, with tourists mostly traveling to destinations in Europe.

Spain still a favorite among UK holidaymakers

Spain has become a firm favorite among holiday travelers from Britain, as it continually lists as the most visited holiday destination abroad. Beach holidays are popular among Brits in search of warmer climates, and the relative ease and cheapness of package holidays to the Mediterranean make it possible. Along with France and Germany, the UK is a key tourist market for Spain.

Will Brexit impact outbound tourism?

Outbound travel from the UK to Europe has been steadily increasing over the last decade, however many have expressed concern regarding the impact of Brexit on holidaymakers heading to Europe. Although visa-free travel has been put forward as part of the withdrawal agreement, until the UK leaves the EU the exact impact is unknown. Expectations of travelers include less favorable exchange rates, more expensive travel and longer passport queues at airports.
