Recovery: more marked than on other Spanish Costas

THE summer season is called the high season with good reason.
Hopes are high as the tourist sector prepares for an influx of visitors and the increase in summer rentals for apartments and villas on the coast reflects this optimism
According to holiday experts TripAdvisor, Almeria Province holiday rentals have risen 30 per cent this year, comfortably outstripping the average 7 per cent increase anticipated elsewhere on Spain’s Costas.
This comes as particularly good news to business-owners in Almeria Province. Having felt the full impact of the fall in summer visitors during the crisis years, they are now among the first to benefit from the recovery.
The increase in national visitors is especially noticeable but foreign tourism is holding up nicely, too, say holiday bosses.
The Diputacion provincial government will pay Serhs Tourism €6 for each tourist who arrives on a charter flight and spends at least five nights in the province between now and October.
To earn this quota, the Barcelona-based travel firm must bring a minimum of 33,000 tourists via the ‘Costa de Almeria’ tourism promotion in place in Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Poland, Holland and Portugal.
