According to the travel company, the area of Heraklion on Crete ranked third in TUI’s Top 10 last-minute destinations, with Rhodes taking the sixth place and Kos the seventh.

Majorca in the Balearic islands was announced the most popular last-minute destination for this summer. “No other destination is so often booked on short notice by German TUI vacationers. Increased flight capacity compared to the previous year further boosted this trend,” the Hannover-based tour operator said in an announcement.

Furthermore, Antalya in Turkey ranked second with double-digit booking growth.

“All [top] three travel destinations [Majorca, Antalya, Crete] have one thing in common: they are the so-called ‘volume targets’ offering high flight frequencies and sufficient bed capacity,” TUI Germany said.
