Wednesday’s lead article alerting Britons to the fact that the Association of British Travel Agents, ABTA, had issued a warning to  Britons who are planning on coming to the Balearics or Spain this summer, to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, attracted a record number of visits to our website. Today, the story was continuing to prove the most popular article on our site.
Within 24 hours of the article being posted, it had attracted 18,348 visits and by this lunchtime that figure had breached the 20,000 mark.

The vast majority of the visits, nearly 88 per cent (some 14,341) came from readers in England. 980 were registered from Scotland, 809 from Wales, 147 from N. Ireland, just three from the Isle of Man and four from other areas of the UK.

The remaining 2,044 visits came from all over the world from as far afield as the United States to the Far East and Australia to slightly closer to home and various parts of Europe, not to mention mainland Spain.

Over the past few months, we have also noticed a significant and continuing increase in the number of comments being posted on the new website. Thank you.
