Following the mad rush of Christmas, the continuing harshness of the British winter and the ever-depressing return to work, sometimes, we just need something to look forward to. And what could be better than a holiday?
Now is the perfect time to book yourself a little vacation to get excited for. It’ll also help to cheer you up while working through those emails that piled up during your 16 days of watching films and eating cheese and crackers.
With so many beach holidays to enjoy, with some being super cheap it’s hard to decide where to go. One thing you could do is to forget about the cheapness of the holiday itself, opting for a villa from the likes of Villa Plus rather than a shared hotel, and concentrating on how cheap items are in the country.
Below, we list what’s cheap to help you make the best European holiday decision.
A stunning holiday location, this is a destination filled with rolling white sands, stunning blue sea and food that’s so mouth-wateringly good you’ll never want to leave. But what about the costs.
With the local beer coming in at under £2, a cup of coffee costing around 62p and a two-course lunch for two at less than £30, you can’t really go wrong.
However, keep in mind that some things aren’t as cheap, with a glass of wine coming in just under £4 and a coke costing £1.78.
With beautiful sights to behold at every turn, Croatia is a country with a deeply contrasting landscape. From white sands and blue seas to towering hills, lush greenery and even scorched landscapes, it’s a place that’s still waiting to have all its corners explored.
A great place to start cheaply is Porec, where a two-course lunch for two costs just over £22, and a local beer comes in at £2.23. You’ll even be able to grab a bottle of water for 74p, but don’t forget your insect repellent, which comes in just under £5.
A known tourist location, if you’re considering going, make sure you head to Paphos this time around.
Cheaper than most locations this stunning place not only brings crystal clear waters and views aplenty, but you can get a two-course lunch for two for just over £20, while three courses will cost around £44. Meanwhile a bottle of water is just 24p, but don’t forget your sun cream, or it’ll set you back nearly £8.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, there’s plenty more destination you can explore that won’t break the bank. So get planning and forget those January blues.
