Europe’s best value location for this year is Turkey, but Costa del Sol is the cheapest one in all of the Eurozone. According to research by Post Office Travel Money, most Spanish resorts charge more than half of the ones in Italy and France.
Despite the fact that Sterling has not been so strong against many international currencies, it has increased very strongly against the Turkish Lira within the last year. The holidaymakers were earning around 4.5 Turkish Lira/£1 in summer 2017, but now the tourists will be picking 6 Lira/£1.
According to The Post Office, and after a close look at the “beach” goods’ basket, the cost of family meals, and the hiring loungers, they found out that the prices of Marmaris, the resort in South coast Turkey, used to be cheaper by 36% than last July, which means, once the items were added together in the index, Marmaris removed Sunny Beach (Bulgaria) from its spot as the cheapest resort in Europe.
Moreover, the research shows the exceptionally good value that holidaymakers can get in Spain. With only £40.72, you can have a family meal in Costa del Sol (Spain), but in Nice (France) you will get it with £98.31. Not only that, in Sorrento (Italy), the average price of a family meal is £129.08, which is a little painful.
