Tourists choose Spain, Portugal and Italy instead of France and Turkey

Tourists choose Spain, Portugal and Italy instead of France and TurkeyPopular traveler’s destinations are struggling to attract visitors after international arrivals fell because of terrorist attacks, BBC reported Monday.

The hardest hit is for Turkey while bookings for September to December are expected to be down by 52% on the same period last year.

The next for the strike is France, where bookings are down by nearly 20% over the same period.

The most favorable resort substitutes in Southern Europe become Spain, Portugal and Italy.

Also during the first seven months of this year, the available seats to Spain from the UK increased by 19% compared with the same period a year earlier, Germany increased by 12%, and Portugal increased by 12%.

France has suffered an accumulated year-on-year decrease of 5.4% between August 2015 and July 2016 and Paris suffered a worse decline, down 7.5% over the same period.

Bookings to Turkey were down by 15% between August 2015 and July 2016 compared with the same period last year due to a series of terror attacks and July's attempted coup.

Meanwhile Tunisia is getting their tourists back after international arrivals fell by 39.4% between August 2014 and July 2015, when a series of terror attacks targeted tourism destinations in the country. The last increase is in the number of visitors from Algeria and Russia.
