Consumers have been searching for a break from Brexit ahead of today’s EU referendum vote, new data from Hotels.com claims.
There has been more than a 35% increase in people looking to go on holiday today over June 23 last year.
The results come as neither side commands a clear lead and with uncertainty surrounding the implications of a potential Brexit.
The booking site has seen an almost doubling of searches to Barcelona, a 70% rise in people looking to book Amsterdam and nearly 75% increase in searches for Berlin.
Searches for New York were up by almost 30%, Las Vegas 20% and Tokyo 30%.
However interest in UK destinations fell year-on-year with Edinburgh down by 30%, Manchester down 20% and Glasgow down 5%.
A Hotels.com spokesman said: “Whether it’s the frankly abysmal weather we’ve been having or a desire to get away from all the talk of Brexit, we’ve definitely noticed an increase in UK searches for hotel check-ins on the day of the EU referendum. It looks like some Brits might prefer to join the ‘brexodus’ to sunnier climes.”
