Here are some of the findings:

  • The Czech capital, Prague, is 2015’s best value city destination, with the average total cost decreasing to £35.29. Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is another ideal destination for a city break, with prices much lower than many other city destinations in Europe.
  • Is a beach more your sort of thing? Well head to the Algarve in Portugal, the cheapest beach resort, closely followed by Sunny Beach, Bulgaria and the Costa del Sol in Spain.
  • If you’re looking for something a little different, perhaps a long haul resort would suit you. The barometer reveals that Bali is the cheapest long haul resort and alongside Cape Town, it’s one of the only two holiday destinations to feature in the top ten of the barometer, which is dominated by European destinations.
  • In contrast, China Town in Singapore is the bottom of the list with prices shooting up to a whopping £149.65 for eight of the most popular tourist items.
