SPAIN is hoping to capitalise on Brits' rising energy costs, with claims that winter warming trips will be cheaper than paying energy bills this year.

The Canary islands and other southern Spanish resorts are hoping to make the most of "thermal tourism" as Brits are expected to flee the cold winter weather.

December trips to Nerja are available for as little as from £79, including flights and accommodation.

Stays in Granada and Cordoba are available from £81.

The president of the Spanish federation of tourist departments Miguel Ángel Sotillos told the Observer: “What we’re saying is that it might be less costly to turn off the heat back home and come here. It’s as simple as that.”

It's not just Spain hoping to make the most of the icy British temperatures either.

Greece is hoping Brits will opt to spend their money on holidays rather than heating their homes, with the country's tourism minister Vassilis Kikilias urging people to visit.

He told the Observer: “Our doors are open 12 months round, our friends in northern Europe should know this. They should head here for the winter.”

Brits will also be targeted with an advertising campaign that asks if they “Wanna feel 20 again?" before adding: "With warm winter temperatures up to 20C, Greece is the place to be.”

December holidays in places like Peloponnese are available from £109.
