Portugal has been named as the cheapest holiday destination in the world for Britons this year.
The country’s perennially popular southern coastal region, the Algarve, came top in the Post Office’s annual Holiday Costs Barometer, which takes into account the average price of eight essential purchases, including an evening meal for two, a beer, a coffee and a bottle of suncream, in 44 popular spots.
The Algarve pipped Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach, with the total cost of the eight items coming in at the equivalent of £33.36, just 17p less than its Eastern European rival. Spain’s Costa del Sol followed in third, ahead of Marmaris, Turkey, and the Czech Republic.
The Japanese capital of Tokyo, where the items cost £58.47, on average, was the only destination outside of Europe to feature in the top 10.
