Black_Friday

Black Friday bargains will be enjoyed by even more Spaniards this year, according to Deloitte.

Black Friday, the term adopted by online and high street retailers to denote a 24-hour flash sale on the last Friday of November, has had a very successful trial period in Spain over the last few years.

Brits boost Andalucía tourism in January

Even in January in the Canaries and maybe even Andalucia, Brits can be found braving the beach.

Even in January in the Canaries and Andalucía, Brits can be found braving the beach.

The first month of the year in the UK was unseasonably mild, particularly in contrast to the sub-zero temperatures hitting the country as March arrives.

Even so, the temptation for Brits to jet off to sunnier climes in January was strong, with new tourism data from Spain showing that UK holidaymakers accounted for 800,000 of the 4.11 million foreign tourists registered in the country in January…

Expat life is a two-way street, which is why the weak pound is not all bad news

A strong British pound was always great news for British holidaymakers, but expats in Spain benefit when the euro rises.

A strong British pound was always great news for British holidaymakers, but expats in Spain benefit when the euro rises.

Last week it was confirmed that the two-year process of pulling the UK out of the EU – the triggering of Article 50 – will begin in early 2017. This news prompted the predictable flurry of doom-mongering articles and mild panic. That was to be expected.

Brits' spending in Spain in 2012 increased by 12 per cent

Brits spent a total of €1.46bn in Spain in 2012 – a 12 per cent increase on 2011.

The figures, which were compiled by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, are likely to be well received by the Spanish government, who are keen to keep British tourists onside as Spain’s recession enters its fourth year.

They needn’t worry. After Spain, the second-place country for Britons’ expenditure was France, coming in a fair way behind – Brits spent just €515 million in France in 2012, which did, however, represent a 16.6 per cent increase on 2011 levels…
