Find out where to get best value in the world’s top holiday hotspots
For the fourth year running, Post Office Travel Money research has found that holidaymakers can expect to pay less for meals, drinks and other tourist staples in many of the world’s most popular resorts and cities. The 15th annual Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer has found that prices have fallen in over three-quarters of the destinations surveyed.
- Sunny Beach, Bulgaria is cheapest of 46 destinations surveyed for the fourth consecutive year
- Portugal’s Algarve experiences a 16.5 percent fall in barometer costs helping consolidate its position as the Eurozone’s cheapest resort area
- Bali is in fourth place and is the best-value long haul destination, followed by Cape Town
The Post Office barometer monitors the price of eight tourist items – comprising dinner for two with a bottle of wine, a range of soft and alcoholic drinks, suncream and insect repellent.
