Lanzarote's Playa Blanca

Enjoying an exotic location in the Atlantic Ocean off the southern tip of Spain and the north west point of Africa, Lanzarote makes an ideal holiday destination. Flights to Lanzarote are some of the in Europe as tourists from colder climates look to soak up summer and winter sun in the Canary Islands.

Indeed a recent Thomas Cook survey recorded the Canary Islands among the top five European travel destinations. And search figures from Teletext holidays put Lanzarote and the Canary Islands at number one of the most sought-after holiday destination for Europeans.

That is good news for the islands which suffered a dip in tourism over the last two years due to the financial crisis. In a bid to aid the Canary Islands economy the Spanish government has reduced airline charges for 2010 and 2011.

Getting to Lanzarote is becoming easier and easier, especially now that the there are cheap deals with companies such as Fly Thomas Cook.

If you were to leave on January 27, a week long Lanzarote holiday is available from just £373 per person. Flying from East Midlands airport, you arrive at the self-catering four star Pueblo Marineros Apartments in Playa Blanca.

With January 24 down on calendars as Blue Monday, this is a very popular time of year to travel. Blue Monday is calculated as the most depressing day of the year according to a number of factors including that fact that people having low income as it is after Christmas and just before their next pay check.

But with the weather in Northern Europe being among the coldest for decades, it is thought that Europeans will still find a way to take a quick break in the sun, especially as prices for flights to the Canary Islands have become even cheaper.

Alex Saint, the CEO of Deal Checker explained: “There is on-going investment in tourism to Lanzarote and the Canary Islands which is good news for travellers and everyone involved in the Canary Islands travel industry.

“Canary Islands tourism recently suffered due to the challenging economic climate. However, the Canary Islands government took steps to rectify this and announced the creation of the Regional Marketing Fund in 2013 to support air traffic growth in Lanzarote and other islands. Hopefully that will encourage more people to fly to this great holiday destination.”
