Spain Has the Cheapest Resorts in the World

By February 4, 2013

Follow me on:

A study by the Post Office in the UK has found that Spain has the lowest in-resort prices of any major tourist destination in the world.

A 'basket' of goods, including a meal for two, cigarettes, coffee and suncream (among other things), cost just 36.14 on the Costa del Sol, equal to the price in Sri Lanka and beating other budget destinations such as Prague (39.17) and Bali (40.47) and way ahead of places like Corfu (57.50) and the Dominican Republic (71.97). You can see the full results here: Holiday Money Report Barometer

What exactly is meant by 'resort' is not always clear. Clearly, there is a world of difference in price between a street stall in the Dominican Republic and the prices tourists meet in an island resort, but Prague doesn't have any 'resorts' as far as I am aware. So while the survey may be a little subjective in what it chose to look at, there is no doubt that Spain is one of the very best budget travel destinations in the world.
