Paris most visited city by Brits in 2012

Paris has come out as the favourite destination for city breaks among Brits. The French capital beat New York, Amsterdam, Las Vegas, Dublin and Rome to be named the most popular city, following a report based on bookings made via Hotels.com.

New York was the second most visited city by Britons in 2012, followed by Dublin in third then Amsterdam, Las Vegas and Rome. The Spanish city of Madrid also grew in popularity rising to 10th place, up four places from 2011, and Istanbul also proved more popular, rising four places to 16th.

American long-haul destinations proved less popular in 2012 with Brits seeming to pick city breaks a bit closer to home. Flights to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Orlando all saw fewer takers from the UK last year, with Las Vegas and Los Angeles both dropping three places to 5th and 14th and San Francisco and Orlando both falling one place to 11th and 13th respectively.

It seems that Brits took advantage of a weaker Euro in 2012 opting to spend more time in destinations such as Paris and Amsterdam to get more for their money. “With the economy still sluggish, it’s not surprising that many UK travellers elected to save money by holidaying closer to home last year, taking advantage of the stronger pound and weaker euro at that time,” said Kate Hopcraft of Hotels.com.

The annual report also found which destinations were the most expensive and which were the best value in 2012. Mote Carlo came out as the priciest destination, with the average stay in a double room priced at around £200 per night. Southeast Asian destinations were found to be the cheapest, with one night stays in Phnom Penh, Pattaya and Hanoi all priced at below £50.
