ACTA: Tourist Arrivals Expected To Reach 3.5 Million This Year

According to the Association of Cyprus Travel Agents (ACTA) Chairman Dinos Kakouras, reservations until October are pretty good and it is important to extend the tourist season well into the winter months and secure reservations for the rest of the year.

Speaking to the Cyprus News Agency, he also said that most tourists come from the UK and Russia, pointing out that tourists from other countries such as the significant markets of Germany, Israel and Sweden are very welcome too.

According to Kakouras, a large number of Cypriots prefer to holiday overseas, with Greece and its islands on the top of the list of destinations. Crete, Preveza, Mykonos, Santorini and Skiathos are the most preferred islands.

A big percentage of the population travel to Europe, mainly Spain, Italy, Austria, Serbia, the Czech Republic and less people visit the US and Asia.
