    Looking for the wild outdoors and stunning scenery? You'll have it in spades here. The landscape is rugged, the wildlife is plentiful, and it's a real hotspot for hiking, climbing, and even bear spotting.

  2. The Shetland Islands

    Just want to get away from it all? Take a ferry from Aberdeen, and you'll be rewarded by beauty and solitude. The walking trails are wild, the bird-watching is magnificent, and the island also boasts thriving music, arts, and foodie scenes.

  3. Majorca

  4. Italian Lakes

    Whether Como or Garda calls you, this spot is ideal for couples who want to relax. Enjoy the finest Italian food, wander around the lakes, enjoy some boating, or head up to the mountains for fresh air and incredible views. Remember to book your accommodation well in advance though.

  5. Madrid, Spain

    Holidaying solo? Why not try this trendy city, which is safe and friendly for individual travellers. Book a cosy BnB where the hosts can point out local hotspots, head to Calle de Ponzano for standing-only tapas, and revel in art and culture.

  6. Reykjavic, Iceland

    For travellers looking for something different, Reykjavic is a perfect place to find inspiration in the ethereal landscape. You can relax at the Blue Lagoon or the wonderful restaurants and hotels. Take a coach journey to see local geysers, waterfalls, and other local geological wonders. Remember to look out for the Northern Lights.

    In Lyon, you can look forward to proud gastronomic, cultural, and entertainment scenes, a beautiful city vista, and a sustainable approach to eco-travel.

  8. Istria, Croatia

    This glorious peninsula is on the cusp of becoming a global hotspot - so see it before everyone else does! Look for Roman amphitheatres, enjoy gourmet food, relax on tree-lined beaches, dance at live music festivals, and enjoy truffle hunting in autumn.

  9. Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    This is a fun spot for a young crowd and the city really buzzes in summer with live music, outdoor dining, great parks, and a cosmopolitan, trendy crowd.

  10. Cappadocia, Turkey

    If you've never taken a hot-air balloon over the magical rocky landscape of Cappadocia's caves, or explored the underground city of Kaymakli, then add it to your bucket list now!

HomeToGo's 2022 Summer Travel Forecast - HomeToGo
Top trending destinations and traveller sentiment for the upcoming high season

HomeToGo's 2022 Summer Travel Forecast

HomeToGo, the marketplace with the world's largest selection of holiday rentals, has released its 2022 summer travel forecast for the UK, using new insight to reveal how British holidaymakers plan to travel in the upcoming high season.

In 2022 so far and on a global scale, HomeToGo has recorded an overall ~+60% uplift in searches for summer holiday accommodation, and a ~+9% observed increase in the average length of stay. In addition, more than half (52%) of all searches for summer holiday rentals this year so far via have been for stays in international destinations, up from 26% in 2021*.

Dr. Patrick Andrae, Co-founder & CEO at HomeToGo, comments: “Over the past two years while restrictions due to COVID-19 have been in place, we’ve seen the demand for travel during the high seasons manifest as surges in domestic tourism, with holidaymakers seeking out rentals in rural destinations for summer stays. Now, as international trips and city breaks regain momentum, holiday rentals remain a top choice of accommodation for many travellers, seamlessly suited to workations and getaways with friends and family - two types of trips we expect to see define the 2022 peak season.”

Holidays Abroad

In a recent HomeToGo global consumer survey, more than a third (34%) of British participants selected good weather as the most influential factor in their choice of destination. Search trends further show that travellers from the UK will be jetting off to visit warmer, sunnier shores this summer, with searches for holiday accommodation in locations such as Málaga, the South of France and the Algarve seeing year-on-year uplifts of +468%, +248% and +207% respectively.

City breaks are also set to return, with sun-kissed urban hubs across Europe seeing compelling increases in searches for summer holiday accommodation - including Porto in Portugal (+548%), Budapest in Hungary (+444%) and Murcia in Spain (+238%). Elsewhere, long-haul destinations such as Canada's Toronto, Indonesia's Bali and Mexico's Cancún are being added to high season travel itineraries, registering search increases of +385%, +227% and +66% respectively.
