Spain has topped a list of cheap holiday destinations for Britons

Spain has topped a list of best-value holiday destinations for British travellers this year.

The study, conducted by Post Office Travel Money, indicated that holidaymakers may find visiting the country cheaper when compared with other destinations such as Brighton or Brittany.

It showed that Spain offers best value-for-money for 10 typical holiday items, including cigarettes, beer and suncream. However, adequate travel insurance would still prove useful for people heading off on a holiday.

Travellers can have the items for just £42.15 in Spain, while they come to £77.01 in Brighton and £92.81 in Miami, Florida.

Second in the list of 14 popular tourist destinations is Bulgaria, where the items totalled £43.50. In Brittany, the items cost £81.48.

In some of the holiday spots, the cost of the items is higher compared with last year, with Brighton up by 10%.

A three-course evening meal with house wine in the Sussex resort, for example, now costs around £45.30 compared with £23.58 in Spain.

Corfu in Greece is 10% less than 2010, with the 10 items now costing £58.87. Turkey is down 13% to £79.58 while Egypt, although comparatively expensive at £78.30, is 12% lower than last year.
