NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, England, May 4, 2011 - The results of a recent travel industry survey have revealed that Spain
is still the least expensive place to travel to this year with prices at a
four-year low, which means great savings for holidaymakers this year, say

A new poll commissioned by Post Office Travel Money has shown that
holidays to Spain are the most affordable for holidaymakers, with a typical
basket of holiday essentials, such as food, drink and sun protection costing
GBP42.15, much less than it would have cost in other popular holiday
destinations in Europe and beyond. The survey, which was undertaken in 14
counties around the world, revealed that the pound is worth so much more than
it was last year. So with the pound stretching further in Spain, it should be
at the top of the list for holidaymakers who want to save as much money as
possible, say ulookubook.com. (www.ulookubook.com/)

Ian Raine of ulookubook.com, comments: "While the cost of ten holiday
essentials in Spain may seem a little expensive, it is relatively cheap when
compared to the cost of the same items in other destinations, as the same
items would cost GBP92.81 in Miami Beach, and GBP77.01 in Brighton. This is a
huge reduction in price compared to the other examples, and it shows that
even the most cost conscious traveller can easily budget for a holiday to

According to the survey, the price of a basket of goods, which includes
food, cigarettes alcohol and sunscreen in Spain is now 15% less than last
year's most popular holiday destination, Portugal. In fact, other popular
destinations in Europe were among some of the most expensive, with the same
items bought in France costing GBP81.48. Prices in Spain have stayed at the
same level since 2010, when they were 36% lower than in 2007, and in Europe,
the same amount of holiday cash will buy the same amount of Euros as it did
last year, with GBP1 getting around 1.06 Euros, which is all the more reason
to look for the cheapest holidays to Spain. (

Raine continues: "The pound is particularly strong this year, and the
Post Office Travel Money survey shows that travellers will be able to get a
lot more for their money this year, particularly in Europe, where prices have
been slashed considerably. However, while many countries in Europe will be
much cheaper for tourists this year, Spain represents the best value for
money for Brits this year. So with the extra holidays during April coming up,
and the Summer fast approaching, the cost of all-inclusive holidays to
Majorca (www.ulookubook.com/all-inclusive-holidays-in-majorca) may not
be as expensive as people may think this year, which is of course, fantastic
news for every holidaymaker."
