Spain was removed from the safe list by the UK government last week at short notice, affecting thousands of booked and future holidays.
This led to nervous tourists cancelling their holidays to other destinations such as France and Italy in anticipation of similar bans.
Instead, a British holiday is on the cards for the summer as families stay closer to home this year.
According to a YouGov poll, 28 per cent of Brits plan to take a UK holiday this year, which works out to around 19 million people, while just nine per cent are planning on going abroad.
With temperatures rising again this weekend, after the country faced the hottest day of the year last week up to 37C, seaside resorts are expecting another influx of tourists.
