Beach Breaks on a Budget: Bulgaria ranked Europe’s Cheapest Destination

Bulgaria has slashed the costs of staying its country, making it the cheapest destination to go on holiday in 2017.

The Post Office’s Holiday Costs Barometer works out the costs of items in certain resorts in Europe. It compares the cost of a basket of typical holiday purchases including food & drink. For the fourth year in a row, Sunny Beach was ranked as the cheapest destination with items less than half the price of those in areas

For the fourth year in a row, Sunny Beach was ranked as the cheapest destination with items less than half the price of those in areas like South France, Italy and Ibiza.

Sunny Beach has become a tourist hotspot based in the East of the nation. The resort also has a large stretch of beach meeting the Black Sea.

One of the many benefits to holidaying in the Balkan country includes the cheap conversion of currency. With Bulgaria not in the Eurozone, the country uses the Lev as its currency. Current rates mean that a beer in the nation currently is valued at about 70p.

It also works out that the average three-course meal for two will be valued at £19.53.

Sunny Beach visitors continues to increase every year with the place making itself more appealing to Britons.
