The release of The Inbetweeners Movie has led to a substantial increase in demand for trips to the holiday resort of Malia in Crete, according to Club 18-30.

A spin-off from the award-winning sitcom, the new film sees British teenagers Will, Neil, Simon and Jay head to the Greek island in search of girls and a good time.

Club 18-30 revealed that it has seen an increase in searches for clubbing holidays in Malia since the movie came out and predicted that the destination will prove popular among young travellers next year.

"Early indications show more interest than ever before [in] Malia since The
Inbetweeners Movie was released last week," said Russell Whitton, the company's trading manager.

"Whilst it's only been a few days since the film's release, it is a positive sign that Malia will be the place to go in 2012 for young holidaymakers."

Club 18-30, the UK's largest youth specialist tour provider, offers package holiday deals in Malia from £175 per person, as well as trips to popular destinations such as Mallorca, Corfu, Rhodes, Cyprus and Turkey.

The operator teamed up with the production team for the Inbetweeners film, meaning 100 of its retail staff and other representatives appear as extras in the movie.
