    A study by the website homelidays.com has revealed that the number of applications for holiday rentals in Spain rose by 18% year on year for June thanks largely to big increases in demand from Britain (27%) and France (26%).

    The results confirm that Spain continues to be an attractive destination for international tourism but also showed a rise of 14% in the number of Spanish tourists probably due to the fact that staying in Spain is an economical holiday choice.

    The regions that saw the most impressive year on year rises were the Costa Brava (30%), Costa Blanca (26%), Mallorca (26%), Formentera (25%) and Malaga (15%).


    The Costa Brava has been the largest beneficiary of the higher demand for holiday rentals

    I don’t know if it’s true or not but the news from SPI consists of tiresome press releases from property agents and letting agents with a vested interest ๐Ÿ™„ ..yawn!! Home holidays …WTF are they ๐Ÿ˜•

    It’s a dripping tap ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Homelidays is clearly a commercial site from the posting, never heard of them before, but now I have, that’s another piece of information that has now been stored in the old brainbox ๐Ÿ™„ Can brains be de-fragmented like computers? ๐Ÿ˜•

    Miles, you may want to dis-associate Spanish Property Insight from Homelidays as they appear to be part of a group named Homeaway Austin Texas. Carl Shepherd is their MD there and also for Home Away France SARL where Homelidays is registered.

    Parent Company is mentioned on a website http://www.ripoffreport.com for amongst other things: advertising illegal vacation rentals, non-compliance of laws, tax evasion and a whole lot more.

    Many complaints about them, and therefore I would not trust their stats ๐Ÿ˜ก ๐Ÿ™„

    shakeel, Google search Homelidays, takes you to their French site, which shows you who the MD is, the chap I listed. then look at bottom of page ‘Who Are We’ shows you parent company Home Away France. Then Google parent company Home Away Austin Texas, or you can just Google rip-offs by both companies in Europe and the States.

    Point is, it’s all the same company and mainly complaints, not repaying monies, listing homes that are not for rental etc, but major issues in America with fraud etc I may inform Kyero as well as they appear to have listed innocently perhaps this company’s stats without knowing their background ๐Ÿ˜‰

    shakeel, the more I delve the more I find about the interlink involving those companies.

    On the one hand there’s a lot of complaints and stories involving their dubious dealings, and on the other hand, that parent company is saying it’s website has been hacked by phishing scams which seem to be taking people’s deposits or payments.

    It looks really tangled ๐Ÿ™„

    With the increase in tourist numbers to Spain (May figures the best in 6 years) is it any surprise that demand for holiday rentals increase?

    Also the claim here is that Spanish tourists are coming back to the CDS

    http://www.surinenglish.com/20130628/news/costasol-malaga/spanish-tourists-starting-come-201306281434.html

    According to the INE (National Institute of Statistics), domestic tourist figures were up 20.6 per cent in May compared with the previous year, while the number of nights they spent in hotels was up 19 per cent.

    Domestic tourist has a nil effect. e.g if the Spaniards do not go to say Cantabria & go to CDS.

    Quite right shakeel ๐Ÿ˜‰ Spain doesn’t get 2 bites of the cherry if domestic tourists are in one region as opposed to another region it’s the same, only one region proffers ๐Ÿ™„

    Still plenty of rooms for hotels in July/Aug. never used to happen. We stayed 2 nights in a hotel last week on costa de la Luz for โ‚ฌ72 per night, last time we stayed there we paid โ‚ฌ120 around 6 years ago. Supposed to have been a bumper year last year after August figures but the full year stats showed only a small improvement.

    Should be a bumper year though considering what is happening in Egypt, Turkey etc. Although Greece is fine, being bankrupt doesn’t effect the tourists :mrgreen: Of course there is always bulgaria ๐Ÿ˜† Interesting that figures for Madrid are down ๐Ÿ˜•

    I feel that people who go Egypt, Turkey are not the same group who would go for Spain.
    Spain had its die hard supporters and I am one of them. I may go where ever but I must get my fix of Spain come what may.
