Research conducted by a leading online travel agent reveals that thousands of Brits will be heading on budget holidays to sunnier climes this Easter with many more sun worshipers jetting off for the Royal Wedding.

The Portuguese Algarve coast is proving to be one of the most popular destinations amongst holidaymakers, with bookings over the Easter period up more than 90% on the same time last year. Malta is also a popular destination this Easter with sales up 22% on the previous year.

Uncertainty surrounding Portugal's economy has seen many airlines and hoteliers offering discounted deals in order to attract British holidaymakers to its resorts.

Malaga, Turkey and the Greek Island of Rhodes make up the top five most popular destinations this holiday period.

Bookings during the period rised in comparison with last year and prices are about 20% lower, so it is expected that a lot of Britons will head the Algarve to take advantage of some days of sun during bank holidays.
