If you hanker after the good old days when you could go abroad and buy all of the things you loved for half the price our infographic could be just what you need. With the pound still one of the world’s strongest currencies we show you how to get the best value for your money when travelling around the world on holiday.
Although European countries are still the most popular destinations this summer it is worthwhile checking out the variation in prices for such basics as hotel rooms, meals and taxis in cities on different continents to see which offer the best value for money.
Unfortunately, compared to the others we have listed, London is the most expensive city, so this could be the perfect excuse for dusting off the passport and buying guide books for more exotic locations.
Taking the cost of long haul flights out of the equation, Asia and Oceania compare quite favourably, but the African continent is cheapest overall for holiday value for money. The Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh has the lowest total cost at only £109, and with taxis charging a mere 19p per km, you can afford to travel around in comfort without worrying about the damage to your purse.
Hopefully the research done by the MoneySupermarket team comparing all the prices will be useful when you are choosing your next holiday. This way you should be able to worry less about you’re spending and be able to concentrate on relaxing and have a fabulous vacation!
