Families looking to escape the UK this October half term and swap the autumn chill for a sunshine break should head to Spain’s Costa del Sol for low resort costs and cheapest family packages, according to the Post Office Travel Money Half Term Barometer.
The cost of a half term family holiday package (two adults and two children) with meals and drinks for one week, Post Office Travel Money found that the Costa del Sol (£1,108) was cheapest of six popular European half term destinations. The Algarve (£1,137) was close behind, just £29 more expensive. The other four destinations surveyed – Majorca, Marmaris (Turkey), Ayia Napa (Cyprus) and Tenerife – cost between £1,210 and £2,186 for a family of four.
Recent research shows a sterling slump of 5.2 per cent against the euro, meaning that visitors will get around £27 less in euros than a year ago when changing £500 and families will be looking the best deals possible.
The report also found that although eating out costs more in Marmaris, Turkey than some of the other destinations, it offers lower package holiday prices, making it less expensive (£1,395) than Ayia Napa (£1,619) or Tenerife (£2,186). Families planning a half term trip to Marmaris will also find their pounds stretch further as sterling currently buys 7.6 percent more Turkish lira than a year ago – the equivalent of over £35 on a £500 exchange.
Andrew Brown of Post Office Travel Money said: “Our new research proves just how important it is for families to check all costs when it comes to choosing a last-minute half term destination. The combination of low resort costs and cheap packages make the Costa del Sol best value overall, but with holiday prices changing all the time, the Algarve and Majorca are still worthy contenders this half term. Travelling at half term may be a last-minute decision but there are still ways that families can plan ahead, like checking resort costs in advance and organising foreign currency before leaving home to avoid getting a poor rate at the airport.”
