Cheap travel tips – Best destinations

Here are few of the best travel tips so you can enjoy savings on your next break abroad – times are tough, so holiday demand is low, yet the pound is weak. Here are some top top tips to keep it cheap:

•Find currencies as weak as the pound

The pound’s weak, so find somewhere with a currency that’s just as weak.

The Post Office Holiday Costs Barometer found that Bulgaria, Turkey and Croatia are the best value short-haul destinations.

France, Cyprus and Italy will hit the wallet hardest.

For long haul, the most cost-effective spots are Thailand, South Africa and Kenya. The priciest are Antigua, the USA and Jamaica.

It’s also worth noting that not all Eurozone countries offer the same value for money. The Post Office’s survey put Portugal fifth place overall, but it was still cheaper than the other euro countries. The survey covered 18 top package destinations; of course, currencies fluctuate, but this is a useful guide.

If you can manage to bag Cheap Flight and Cheap Hotel to a non-traditional destination with an even cheaper cost of living, such as India or Argentina, your pound will stretch even further. See Mercer’s Cost of Living Survey for inspiration.

•Choose all-inclusive or self-catering

If you’re going abroad, the real cost is when you get there. Eating out is likely to be a big hit, so either consider full-board or all-inclusive. Alternatively, self-cater, and pop to the local supermarket.
