A study carried out by ‘Momondo,’ a free global search website (momondo.pt) which allows holidaymakers to compare the flight prices, car rental, and hotels has highlighted Madeira in three of its categories – Best European Active Holiday Island, Budget travel and Low Season European Travel. Although Crete topped the European list, Madeira was not far behind, scoring highly in several categories.
Collecting data from 70 European islands based on seven categories: climate, flight accessibility, prices (hotel, car rental, restaurants, local food and transport), things to do, child-friendly, COVID-19 safety, and sustainability. These categories were then evaluated on 19 sub-factors to determine which islands offered tourists the best experience and best suited to travelers’ needs, including the best family vacations, cheapest destinations, low-season favorites, and vacations in seclusion.
As far as the best islands for low-season holidays are concerned, Madeira is highlighted for having “a pleasantly mild climate all year round and an average level of rainfall that makes it a perfect place to travel at any time.” In the ‘The Best Budget Island Holiday’ category, the region was singled out for offering travelers “a budget friendly style holiday.”
Madeira came 8th in the ‘Active Holiday’ rankings, with Momondo stating that the island’s vast number of varied levada walks and hiking routes made it a great choice for intrepid outdoor adventure seekers.
