As England Exits the World Cup, WAGs Wash Away Their Woes With Holidays in the World’s Dreamiest Destinations
LONDON–(Marketwire – June 30, 2010) – The footballers’ loss is the travel industry’s gain as search rises by seven per cent just one day after England’s Cup exit says Cheapflights UK when comparing Monday 28th June with Monday of the previous week.
Brits are set to drown their sorrows along sunny shorelines and the UK’s leading flight comparison site has identified this summer’s Top 10 celeb destinations where holiday makers can enjoy the scintillation of a celeb style sizzle ‘a la WAG’.
Here we preview five of the ten top hotspots:
Popular not only with the likes of footballer Tommy Williams and his now wife, Nicole McLean, the Maldives are also a favourite of TV WAGs star Zoe Lucker. The glittering crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean are lined with ancient coral reefs which expanded along the sides of prehistoric volcanoes; a combination of natural wonders that make for astounding snorkelling and diving in the warm water lagoons. Accommodation comes in various exotic forms from beach-side huts along the shorelines to over-water villas with transparent flooring. So make like a WAG and grab your flip flops (and maybe some hair extensions?) to escape the World Cup blues from £464 return.
Isles of Fiji
The South Pacific paradise of Fiji is perfect for getting up close and personal with the footballing WAG likes of Sheree and Harry Kewell, among others. Its only drawback is that it can be slightly more costly depending on which island you choose, but the idyllic surroundings are well worth the extra spend. From £601 return, you could be taking a dip along the shorelines of one of the world’s most exclusive celeb destinations.
The Caribbean Isles have proven popular with the likes of Louise and Jamie Redknapp as well as Alex and Steven Gerrard. While there are many islands to choose from, one of the most popular isles of the moment is Anguilla. Its unspoilt, yet to be developed surroundings create a feeling of serenity making it the perfect setting for footballers and their WAGs to escape the post loss media frenzy. To create your own WAG-esque hideaway, hop a flight from £585 return.
St. Tropez, France
WAGs love the tanning spray, but did you also know they love the actual place? Glitz and glam is the name of the game in St. Tropez where the likes of Coleen McLaughlin and Wayne Rooney have been known to hang out. Yacht parties and beach lounging (or posing) are what it’s all about here, so pack your most stylish sun hat, enough bikinis for a mini catwalk parade and perhaps a bit of beach bling to blend in. Make your own celeb style entrance from £124 return.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Its close proximity to Los Angeles makes Cabo San Lucas it a natural celeb hotspot, but it’s proven to be a WAG destination too frequented by the likes of Amanda Harrington and Joey Barton. Water sport enthusiasts can hit its white sandy beaches for activities like parasailing, snorkelling, kite sailing and diving. Andale over to Mehico with flights from £691 return.
