HOLIDAYMAKERS eating out in Spain this year will pay some of the lowest prices in the world, a new survey shows.
The Costa del Sol was rated as 2015’s fourth-best value for food, drink and other holiday needs from 46 destinations the Post Office Travel Money report visited around the world, with a price of €47.30.
The shopping basket consisted of a cup of coffee, a bottle of local beer, a can of Coca-Cola, a glass of wine, a bottle of mineral water, suncream, a packet of Marlboro cigarettes and a three-course evening meal for two with house wine.
An average Costa del Sol coffee cost €1.27 and a bottle of local beer coming in at €2.13.
The gap between prices on the Costa del Sol and the cheapest destination has risen from €1.32 last year to more than €7.90.
Portugal’s Algarve was the least expensive resort, with an average cost of €38.62.
