Holidaying outside the eurozone 'can help reduce costs'

Holidaymakers should consider traveling outside the eurozone this summer in order to save money.

With the global credit crunch and rising food and fuel costs reducing the amount of disposable income, UK tourists should be looking for cheaper holiday options.

Holidays in western Europe are set to be at there most expensive this year so by traveling outside the eurozone, holidaymakers can make their money go further as the pound continues to struggle against the euro.

Tourists do not have to look too far for holiday bargains as many top destinations are within a comfortable travelling distance.

Sophie Butler, travel writer for the Times recommends Bulgaria as it is just over a three hours flight away and has an extremely cheap cost of living with a three-course meal costing not much more than £10.

Holidaymakers should research their locations before traveling to avoid disappointment.

"You need to choose your accommodation carefully as noisy building work can spoil some resorts," writes Ms Butler in the Times.ADNFCR-1320-ID-18591834-ADNFCR
