Bulgaria is top travel value

BULGARIA beckons for bargain-hunting British holidaymakers, with the Eastern European country proving the best-value destination at present.

A basket of 10 typical holiday spending items, including evening meals and drinks, cost just £43 in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria, according to a Post Office survey.

In contrast, the items in the two priciest destinations surveyed — Tuscany and Sorrento in Italy — cost more than £100.

Marmaris in Turkey was the second most inexpensive destination, with the items setting holidaymakers back £54. Spain's Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca areas were also good value for money.
