Family Holiday Report 2018
This year’s Family Holiday Report from Post Office Travel Money reveals that reveals that families are likely to find lower prices in two-thirds of the 15 destinations surveyed for the Beach Barometer.
Key findings include:
- The Post Office Beach Barometer, which compares prices for 13 family items including an evening meal, drinks and beach items such as a bucket & spade, inflatable lilo, ice creams and water rides, found that prices are up to 36 per cent lower than last summer.
- Marmaris is this year’s cheapest resort. Prices in the Turkish resort are more than a third lower than a year ago, thanks to a slump in the value of the lira against sterling.
- Sunny Beach, Bulgaria is another resort offering great value this summer – with the cheapest meal and drinks prices by far.
The Costa del Sol is best value in the eurozone while prices in Corfu are down 24 per cent.
Over 10,000 Post Office branches offer euro over the counter, while the Croatian kuna and Bulgarian lev are among 30 available on demand at 1,600 larger Post Office branches. A total of up to 80 currencies can be pre-ordered at over 11,500 Post Office branches or online at postoffice.co.uk for next day branch or home delivery.
