It is the former playground of the Soviet Union, but now a beach resort is putting a smile on the face of British travellers.
A basket of 10 typical holiday items, including evening meals and drinks, costs just £43 in Sunny Beach in Bulgaria.
New figures unveiled in the Post Office travel money survey reveal that Marmaris in Turkey is the second most inexpensive destination, with the items setting holidaymakers back £54.
Spain’s Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca also give good value alongside the Portuguese Algarve and Paphos in Cyprus where prices have plunged 21% in the last year
In Ibiza the basket of items cost £97, with travellers to Nice in France paying £96.
Andrew Brown, of Post Office Travel Money, said: “The strength of sterling is great news for people planning holidays abroad and they can make sure their holiday cash stretches even further by doing their homework before booking to pick a destination where prices have fallen furthest.
“Resort prices can make or break the holiday budget so choose a destination where healthy competition between restaurants and bars has resulted in cheaper meals and drinks.”
