15 per cent more British visitors to Spain in January 2017
The boom in the Spanish international tourist sector shows no signs of slowing down as another year begins, with the figures released on Tuesday for the month of January 2017, showing that the number of people visiting Spain from abroad was 10.7% higher than in the same month in 2016, standing at 3.9 million.
At the same time, the importance of the UK market to the sector appears to be growing still further. The number of British tourists was 15% higher than in January 2016 at almost 800,000, accounting for over one fifth of the total.
