The terrible weather seen in June has led to large rise in the number of Britons searching online for overseas holidays.
Travel firm Thompson revealed there has been a 20 per cent rise in enquiries compared to the same month in 2011.
And its head of online marketing Nathan Timmins noted: "Over the last month the Balearics, Spain, Greece, Tunisia and Morocco have proved popular as Brits look to escape to sandy beaches, beautiful weather and resorts that they know and love."
Some may want to opt for northern Spain, which can be accessed through ferries from Portsmouth to Santander
The development comes after a June that the Met Office confirmed to be the wettest since it began keeping comparable records in 2010.
During the month, an average of 145.3 mm of rain was recorded across the UK, topping the 136.2 mm that fell in 2007.
The level of sunshine was also the second lowest at 119.2 hours, with only 1987 (115.4 hours) having less.
