He said: “We want to emphasise the idea of how Spain is a home from home for British tourists. “The links between both countries are undeniable and strong. “They feel safe and secure there and they know they can communicate easily with people.” Hernandez also asserted that British tourists in Spain can be confident of safe roads and the “best healthcare”.
