Brits opting out of Eurozone for holiday value

British holidaymakers are avoiding Eurozone countries in the search for value-for-money holidays, according to figures from a leading UK travel website.

 

Non-Euro destinations have seen an increase in bookings of 60 per cent compared with this time one year ago, and of the top five destinations of choice for Brits in May, four of them were non-Euro, with flights to Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia and Bulgaria seeing a boost.

 

It appears that British tourists really are seeking value, as the difficult economic times show no signs of turning around. And it appears that they are right to shun the traditionally popular destinations within the Euro, in favour of lesser-known, or further afield, holiday spots.NoEur2

Latedeals.co.uk has analysed data on the average price of four essential holiday purchases in eight different countries (four popular Eurozone holiday spots, and four popular non-Euro ones), to see which destination really does provide the best value.

 

A three-course meal for two in Spain was seen to cost twice as much as it would in Turkey or Bulgaria (€40, compared to €20), while Tunisia and Egypt were the cheapest, at €15.50 and €16.40 respectively. A loaf of bread was seen to cost seven times more in Italy than in Tunisia (€1.50 compared to €0.17), and a beer in Spain or Portugal (€2), was nearly double the price of a beer in Bulgaria (€1.02).NoEur3

These figures really do highlight the disparity in cost between traditionally popular, Eurozone destinations, and their non-Eurozone counterparts. And as British holidaymakers continue to look for value in their vacation choices, it will be the non-Eurozone destinations that continue to enjoy their moment in the sun.
