Spanish tourism boosts economy
13.6.17, CH: Due to the unsecure situation in other traditional holiday countries, Spain has been able to report a significant increase in tourist numbers over the last few years. This year too, a high number of numbers of overnight stays and sometimes new overnight stays are expected. As a result, many hotels and other private accommodation are well utilized in the popular regions such as the Costa Blanca. Also restaurants and tapas bars are hiring waiters, cooks and other staff. The Spanish labor market recorded an above-average rise in new recruits, particularly in the gastronomy and hotel industry. The labor market and the economy in Spain are also recovering overall.
Since 2013, the Spanish economy has been steadily increasing. An important driver is the tourism sector. The high security, breathtaking beaches and natural landscapes, a variety of leisure activities as well as a good infrastructure offer excellent incentives for a holiday in Spain or to get their own holiday home here.
The stable location on the tourism market has prompted so many English holidaymakers to become the landlord of private accommodation and generate a further income. There are also some interesting apartments in the Altea area, as well as holiday homes, which can be used by the owners themselves, but can also be rented out during the season. The rental income contributes to the financing of the property.
The location of cities like Altea is particularly good. Because it is not too far from supraregional infrastructure like Alicante with the airport, nevertheless the life there is a bit quieter and more tranquil. The fact that it is a tourist interesting place brings with it, that also there are many offerers, which are interesting for holiday home tenants and assist in the handling of the rental, even if the landlord himself can not always be on site.
