The 10th annual Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer from Post Office Travel Money brings encouraging news of lower costs in a number of the world’s most popular resorts and cities. The biggest falls among the 42 destinations surveyed are in long haul holiday hotspots, while prices in most European resorts have risen. However, eight of the 10 best value places in this year’s barometer are filled by European destinations.
Prices are down in over 40 per cent of the destinations surveyed, with falls of over 20 per cent in eight holiday hotspots including Dubai, New Zealand, St Lucia and Antigua.
