The new Post Office Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer monitors the price of eight popular tourist items in over 40 holiday destinations worldwide - including dinner for two, light refreshments and sun cream.
- Spain and Sri Lanka share the top spot for value of 42 destinations surveyed
- Turkey returns to the barometer top 10 after resort prices fell 16 per cent in the past 12 months; Portugal and Bulgaria also feature among the 10 cheapest destinations
- Falling prices in Bali and Vietnam have helped these fast-rising Far East destinations to overtake Thailand and take fourth and fifth places in the Worldwide Barometer
- Prices have fallen 20 per cent in Egypt, thanks to sterling’s surge in value against the Egyptian pound and lower resort costs. As a result, the mid haul favourite has risen to 13th place in the barometer table - and is 45 per cent cheaper than its rival, Dubai.
