Catherine Finlan, head of sales England at Barrhead Travel said: "Turkey, Greece, Majorca Tenerife. But, what's also proving really popular and growing in demand is those bucket list destinations and touring and adventure (holidays) as well. Those destinations include Canada, the US, Japan, and Dubai.”

Summer is the season most of us look forward to. It provides well needed vitamin D, long summer nights spent with family and friends and hopefully a holiday.

Catherine added: "Holidays are a top priority for people at the moment. What we are seeing is they are travelling for longer durations so that they get the maximum time of the holiday. Cruises are also proving really popular this year, and that’s really down to the value of the choice that cruising holidays offer. There are 26 new ships in the market this year."
