British travellers looking to stretch their holiday money on a European city break should opt for Budapest, according to a new survey
Budapest offers the best value for British travellers looking to make the most of their holiday money, according to new research. A cost-comparison study found the capital of Hungary offers the lowest combined price for a selection of 12 items travellers can expect to pay for in 25 different destinations.
The typical expenses, on things such as accommodation and food, total £134.76 in Budapest, compared to the Scandinavian cities of Stockholm in Sweden and Copenhagen in Denmark where similar items will set you back £420.36 and £440.45 respectively.
Those opting for a break in Budapest will have plenty of spare cash available for
travel insurance and other essentials. But more good value is on offer in Lithuania, Warsaw and Latvia. The same items cost £140.99 in Vilnius, £151.69 in Warsaw and £155.34 in Riga.
The Post Office Travel Money survey also reveals how visits to the Croatian city of Dubrovnik, Moscow and Krakow in Poland are now high on the wish-lists of British travellers.
