With the traffic light system a thing of the past, Brits can’t wait to embark on a hassle-free adventure holiday – and it seems that our sites are located in Spain.

Airbnb has released new data revealing the most popular European destinations among UK holidaymakers right now, and nine of the top 13 are in Spain.

The Spanish city of Cordoba is the trendy destination for those preparing for the winter sun, thanks to its ancient architecture and rich cultural heritage.

Beyond the traditionally touristy areas of Madrid and Palma, travelers are eager to explore the remotest corners of Spain and look for places in La Gomera and Santander.

For vacationers wishing for a winter wonderland, Trondheim in Norway is the coldest place on the list and will be the ultimate destination to enjoy snow-capped mountains and warm nightcaps to reign in the New Year.

Meanwhile, Chisinau is emerging as the booming Eastern European destination thanks to its Soviet architecture and market value, attracting British travelers looking for something new.
