Canary Islands Holiday Rentals

Tourist demand for holiday rentals in the Canary Islands has increased by 14% in January 2012 compared to the previous year according to holiday letting companies.
The Canary Islands including Fuerteventura are attracting more independant holiday makers as they look for more reliable warm weather especially during the winter months.

More traditional destinations such as Menorca and Ibiza in the Baleric Islands meanwhile, would benefit from new investment in holiday homes to help improve the level of available rental accommodation. Recent cold weather accross mainland Europe has also affected future visitor numbers as footage of snow falling on the beaches persuaded many to look to the Canaries instead.

In both areas, house prices have held up better than those on the mainland as owners find they have a higher return on their holiday home investments.

Recently published figures by Tinsa show for the same year period house prices accross these two regions fell by 3.1% compared to the mainland 6.6%. This no doubt is also due to the 20-30% increase in tourist numbers in some of the Canary Islands like Fuerteventura compared to a rise across the whole of Spain of 7%.

Fred Olsen Cruises to Fuerteventura

Fred Olsen have started a new program of cruises to include Fuerteventura, West Africa and Cape Verde.The new fly-cruise iteneraries will include 'Sun & Souks', 'African Beaches and Tropical Islands' and 'Morocco and the Canaries', departing from London Gatwick and Manchester airports.

Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Nathan Philpot said:

“This is a really exciting, innovative development for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. While we know that many of our regular cruise guests relish several days at sea, there are many would-be cruisers who are slightly younger and cannot take time for a leisurely voyage, or simply prefer to start enjoying their sun-seeking as soon as possible. The short and easy flight to Tenerife means that guests can start to enjoy their cruise holiday in the sun within hours. This is a great new product to help agents sell cruises to those who might otherwise take a traditional package holiday.”

The new fly-cruises will be between seven and 14 nights’ duration, with exclusive charter flights from London Gatwick and Manchester to Santa Cruz, Tenerife. The fly-cruises are available as a "cruise only" option, so that guests have even more choice when booking their Fred. Olsen cruise holiday. This flexibility means that agents can take advantage of "dynamic packaging" to create a tailor-made cruise experience that is just right for their customer. It also means that agents can sell cruises to their local markets using convenient regional airports, as Tenerife is served by flights from London Gatwick, London Stansted, London Luton, Manchester, Birmingham, Blackpool, Glasgow, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Bristol, East Midlands, Cardiff, Aberdeen, Belfast, Bournemouth and Doncaster Sheffield.

The cruise ship Braemar, based in Tenerife from January to March 2013 will depart from Southampton on 6th January 2013, on her repositioning cruise of seven nights, and will return to the UK on 24th March 2013.

A seven-night cruise will depart from London Gatwick/Manchester on 17th February 2013, visiting Lanzarote, Madeira, La Palma, El Hierro, La Gomera, with return flights from Tenerife.
The most popular fly-cruise is 14-night "Cape Verde, Senegal and The Gambia", calling at Fuerteventura, Cape Verde, Senegal, The Gambia, and Gran Canaria.
