Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer 2015

Prague is 2015’s best value destination while the Algarve is Europe’s cheapest beach resort, according to the new Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer from Post Office Travel Money .  Use our Travel Barometer to find out how much a range of items in each destination cost here.

 

The Post Office barometer monitors the price of eight tourist items in 46 destinations worldwide – including dinner for two, drinks and suncream. Key findings include: 

 

  • Low prices for meals in the Czech capital have made Prague this year’s best value destination but city break holidaymakers will also find Budapest a bargain too
  • Runner up, Portugal scores as the cheapest beach resort – although the Algarve is only pennies cheaper than Sunny Beach, Bulgaria and Spain’s Costa del Sol
  • A 19 per cent fall in barometer costs makes Crete a hot tip for 2015 
  • Bali remains the cheapest long haul resort and along with Cape Town is one of only two destinations to feature in a barometer top ten dominated by Europe

 

Up to 70 currencies can be pre-ordered at over 11,500 Post Office branches or online for next day branch or home delivery. 30 currencies are available on demand at 1,600 larger Post Office branches, while over 4,000 branches offer US dollars and Turkish lira and 10,000 offer euro over the counter.
