Individuals with property in the United States will be encouraged by news that the country is seeing an increase in tourism.

According to online travel agent, bookings to the country have almost doubled on the website.

Stella Clery-Ackland, UK representative of the United States Travel Association, backed up the news, saying: "The US has always been the most popular long-haul holiday destination for UK travellers.

"The country is attracting increased visitors seeking soft adventure, heritage and cultural experiences."

She added that popular locations included old favourites such as Florida and New York, as well as emerging destinations like Utah, Missouri, Louisiana and Texas, which have seen "double-digit visitor growth".
