Some of the year’s most popular searches on Google include ‘Royal Baby’, ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘twerking’, but today we’re focusing on a far more interesting subject: your holidays.

We’ve compiled a list of the most searched-for destinations on the Holiday Discount Centre website, so whether you’re planning your holiday for 2014 or are stuck for some travel inspiration, here are what you – our customers – have been looking for the most.

Top 5 Resorts

1. Benidorm
Attracting an average of five million tourists each year, Benidorm was Spain’s first ever package holiday resort. After London and Milan, Benidorm has the third highest number of skyscrapers in Europe and people return year after year for the clean beaches, hundreds of bars and amusement parks. Be one of them next year from just £389 full board.

2. Sharm El Sheikh
This Red Sea resort is one of Egypt’s most popular tourist destinations, and a world renown place for diving holidays. You can dive all year round in Sharm, but for the warmest water, time your visit between June and September. Fancy it? We’ve got a 5* all inclusive holiday deal from £289.

3. Playa De Las Americas
One of the island’s largest party capitals, this Tenerife resort is best known for its black beaches thanks to the local volcanoes. Any light-coloured sand you see in the area is imported from Africa’s Sahara Desert.

4. Marmaris
Situated along the Aegean Coast, the colour turquoise also got its name from this region. French for ‘Turkish stone’, the blue-green gem originates from the area –  it’s just a coincidence that the water happens to be the same colour.

5. Paphos
The 8th largest city in Cyprus, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is not only the birthplace of the Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty, but also has around nine wineries in the area too. That’s us sold (and with 4* all inclusive holidays from £319, probably you too).

Top 5 Countries

1. Turkey
Santa might live in the North Pole nowadays, but it’s believed that good ol’ St Nick is originally Turkish and was born in the country’s Patara District. Take an all inclusive trip to your top searched country in 2014 from just £339.

2. Spain (including the Canaries)
Home to 8,000km of beaches, this Mediterranean country isn’t just famous for its coastlines: did you know that 45% of the world’s olive oil comes from Spain? Get us to the tapas bar…

3. Greece
This ancient country has the most archaeological museums in the world and is the top producer of sea sponges. That shore is a lot of coral!

4. Portugal
At 11 miles long, the nation is home to Europe’s longest bridge (Lisbon’s Vasco da Gama). Portugal also produces half of the world’s cork.

5. Malta
With roughly 360 churches in the country, Malta is home to the world’s most churches per capita. That’s about one for every 1,000 residents.
