Costa del Sol one of Europe’s bargain holiday hotspots


THE Costa del Sol has been named one of Europe’s best value for money holiday hotspots.

Buckets and spades, sun cream and insect repellent can cost holidaymakers up to 80% more in some European resorts than in others, according to a Post Office Travel Money survey.

Spain was topped only by Bulgaria, while Italy and France were named as the priciest destinations in Europe.

A three-course family meal, beach items and alcoholic drinks were among the 15 typical holiday-spend items surveyed, in 13 popular European resorts.

The best-value resort was Sunny Beach in Bulgaria, where all 15 items cost just €83.

But the Costa del Sol was hot on its heels, where the items cost €101, followed by Crete at €110.

On the other end of the spectrum, buying a bucket and spade in Nice on the French Riviera – the most expensive resort – will set you back an incredible €10.32
