Maldives holiday searches jump as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set a new trend
Maldives.net.mv – More Britons are looking to visit Maldives as Kate and William, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge holidays in the sunny side of life. Searches for holidays in the Maldives jumped by 15 per cent over the weekend and Britons researched trips following in the footsteps of the Royal couple to the Indian Ocean atolls, according to TravelSupermarket. This figure is expected to grow further in the coming days.
Speaking about the increase in searches for Maldives holiday, Bob Atkinson, travel expert at TravelSupermarket, said: ‘It’s no secret that where The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travel, the world will follow, but the interesting thing about their most recent trip to the Maldives is that holiday searches have risen, irrespective of the destination posing a once in a lifetime trip for many Brits.
‘The Maldives is an exotic paradise that many people dream to visit, and so seeing the royals photographed against stunning beachside backdrops, enjoying a week together without their first born son, has inspired sun-seekers to search and see if it is within their budget to sample for themselves one day.’
A recent survey revealed Maldives as the preferred honeymoon destination for Britons.
