More British tourists for the DR
According to the latest trends report from Hayes and Jarvis, British tourists seem to be opting for destinations they perceive to be safe from the troubles that have dampened demand for Egypt and Kenya.
'West is Best' could be the motto as Hayes & Jarvis reports record bookings for Mexico, Latin America and the Dominican Republic as well as significant increases for both the USA and Caribbean. Value is key to the Caribbean success with rock bottom pricing fuelling demand for three and four-star trips to Barbados and St Lucia.
As a result 2012 bookings in the Caribbean are up 37 per cent overall - but as much as 800 per cent for the Dominican Republic, 66 per cent for Cuba and 55 per cent for St Lucia - while Mexico has seen a further surge of 143 per cent compared with a year ago.
