Costa del Sol is by far the most inexpensive holiday resort in Spain for a late summer getaway, according to MyTravelMoney.co.uk.

The travel finance website compared the average price of holiday essentials - including flights, hotel rooms, drinks, taxi and a meal for one - across popular Spanish holiday destinations, to discover which offered the best value option. 

Costa Del Sol September getaway cheapest, says survey

While the sun-drenched Costa del Sol was the cheapest the most expensive was the capital Barcelona, where hotels and eating out were more expensive that elsewhere in Spain.

The Costa del Sol also boasted the joint average cheapest flights, the second cheapest hotel rooms mid-range drinks and food but the cheapest taxis in the poll.

The second most expensive resorts were the Baleric Islands - the average of Mallorca, Minorca and Ibiza combined - followed by the Canary Islands and the Costa Blanca.

Daniel Abrahams, MD of Mytravelmoney.co.uk, said: “Barcelona may prove popular with culture vultures but the hotel prices in particular will take a large chunk out of your holiday money. You are better off joining the expats on the Costa del Sol, for a sunshine break that won’t break the bank."

In September, average temperatures in the Spanish Costas reach 23 degrees compared to around 13 degrees back in the UK.
