Bulgaria is the cheapest European holiday destination for Britons, according to a new survey by the Post Office.
The survey found that 10 typical holiday items and costs, including a three-course meal out, will cost tourists just 42.79 pounds sterling in Bulgaria, virtually half the price holidaymakers would be expected to pay in Brighton, according to Post Office Travel Money’s latest cost index.
Turkey is the second-best bargain country for Britons, where costs at the popular resort of Marmaris have fallen by more than 20 per cent since last summer.
The same investigation found that prices on Spain's Costa del Sol have risen by 35 per cent since 2011, where the same 10 luxuries now cost more than 50 pounds sterling. In Portugal costs have also increased by 10 per cent, although prices have gone down in most of the 15 destinations surveyed.
