Press Release: March 17, 2010

Whilst researching facts on the holiday island, newly launched online independent travel agent www.Tenerife.co.uk spoke to 576 couples who conceived on holiday to find out which destinations were the hotspots for baby making.

The study found that Spain was the country where most of the couples conceived, with 36% of the respondents claiming they became pregnant in Spanish destinations such as Tenerife, Malaga and Majorca.

The top locations where couples conceived were;

1.Spain 36%
2.Italy 19%
3.Dominican Republic 11%
4.France 8%
5.Egypt 5%

Of those who conceived in Spain the majority, 44%, did so whilst on holiday in the Canaries and Tenerife was the most popular island for amorous couples. Only 17% of the couples said they planned to try for a baby whilst on holiday. 5% of the couples were on their honeymoon when they conceived.

Tenerife.co.uk, a website that provides holidays solely to Tenerife, asked the couples what it was about being on holiday that got them in the mood. 12% said the warm weather made them more likely to make love whilst abroad and 24% said the general lack of clothing whilst on holiday, such as being in swimwear a lot of the time, meant they were more likely to be in the mood.

A third of the couples, 31%, said the simple fact they were on holiday made them more likely to sleep with their partner, as they were more relaxed than when they were at home. Of the couples who planned to conceive whilst on their holiday, 8% said they wanted to follow the popular trend of celebrities such as the Beckhams, who famously named their son Brooklyn after the place where he was conceived.

Chris Brown, the co-founder of the UKs leading online independent travel agent www.sunshine.co.uk and the newly launched Tenerife.co.uk said;

We were keen to speak to some couples who had conceived whilst they were on holiday and to mark the launch of our new website by carrying out some research to see which were the most popular destinations for couples returning with something a little extra.

It was slightly surprising that only around 1 in 5 actually planned to get pregnant whilst on their vacation and some of the reasons people gave, such as general lack of clothing, were quite amusing. As soon as we heard the rumours that Tenerife was a baby making hotspot, we held back slightly on the launch of Tenerife.co.uk until we had enough couples to speak to about conceiving on holiday, because it was such an interesting fact.

He concluded, We are proud to be able to say that Tenerife.co.uk is a unique website within the holiday industry and who knows, we could be responsible for some of the next generation of holiday babies.
