LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 20, 2012) - A number of people are preparing to go on holiday this summer. As low cost airlines make it easier to see the world more than ever before, there are a vast number of prime locations which are now easily accessible.

Asda Finance reveals the top summer destinations for 2012.


Over the last decade, Turkey has captured the hearts of European and international tourists. It has now become a highly sought after holiday destination which offers sun, sea and culture at reasonable prices. The southern regions of the country are particularly popular with tourists offering a gold coastline with a range of high quality accommodation.


Spain is the most popular holiday destination for families, according to one travel operator. *Spain has something to offer all holidaymakers; from extreme party paradise islands such as Ibiza, to family fun in Barcelona and relaxing retirement properties in Alicante.

Majorca is also a popular hot spot for British tourists. The island is easily accessible and bustling with summer holiday activities.


Portugal is another popular holiday destination for British tourists. There are a number of fantastic places to visit within the country, from the cultural capital of Lisbon to the sunny shores of Algarve.


Italy is bursting with culture and great cuisine. From the historic Vatican City to the romantic city of Venice, there is a lot to see and do.

Milan is typically considered the fashion capital of the country, attracting some of the world's most prestigious designers and clothing shops, making the city ideal for a summer shopping trip.

When travelling overseas it could be worth considering taking out travel insurance before you go.
