Searches for UK-based holidays increased following the news that people who attempt to travel abroad without a valid reason will be fined £5,000.
Under England’s lockdown rules, people can only leave the country for essential trips, such as for work or compassionate reasons.
News of the fine came as Covid-19 cases continued to rise in parts of Europe, with Boris Johnson warning the effects could also be felt in the UK.

International travel will not be allowed until at least 17 May under England’s lockdown roadmap.
But domestic getaways will be back on the cards sooner. Here are the rules for each of the devolved nations.
Under England’s lockdown roadmap, limited domestic holidays are likely to be allowed from 12 April, as part of the second stage of reopening.
Residents will be allowed to travel in their household or support bubble, for overnight stays in self-contained accommodation such as holiday cottages and campsites where facilities are not shared.
Hotels and B&Bs are likely to reopen from 17 May, under the third step of the roadmap.
From this date groups of six from different households will be allowed to holiday together, or larger groups from a maximum of two households.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said all restrictions on travel within mainland Scotland will be lifted from 26 April.
She added: “We hope that restrictions on journeys between Scotland and other parts of the UK and the wider common travel area can be lifted, if not on 26 April, then as soon as possible thereafter.”
Scotland plans to reopen all tourist accommodation from this date, along with pubs, restaurants and cafes outdoors.
This means residents in England, Wales and Northern Ireland could be allowed to holiday in Scotland from 26 April.
First Minister Mark Drakeford has said that Welsh residents can holiday within Wales from Easter, with self-contained holiday accommodation reopening from 27 March.
Residents from other parts of the UK will not be allowed to enter Wales until 12 April.
“Thanks to a real team effort across Wales, coronavirus cases remain stable, and the vaccination programme continues apace,” Mr Drakeford said ahead of Thursday’s news conference.
“As a result, the Welsh Government has the headroom to continue its careful, step-by-step approach to relaxing restrictions.
“The review we have concluded this week, means we can continue with our programme of further re-opening of the economy and loosening the restrictions in place.”
Northern Ireland is planning to relax its “stay-at-home” message on 12 April, and replace it with guidance to “stay local”.
Caravan sites, hotels and B&Bs will reopen with restrictions under stage three of Northern Ireland’s roadmap, but a date for this has not yet been given.
