The idyllic Indonesian island province of Bali is officially the cheapest long-haul winter holiday destination, according to a recent report published by the Post Office.
The Post Office Long-Haul Report was conducted in association with their Travel Money department and the aim was to identify both the cheapest and furthest away winter sun spots.
As part of the study, the Post Office’s report assesses the prices of 10 clearly defined travel necessities in as many as 34 winter sun holiday destinations.
These necessities – which many tourists often enjoy on tailor-made Bali holidays – are defined as a cup of filter coffee, a bottle of local lager, a bottle/can of Coca Cola, a glass of wine, a cocktail, a small chocolate bar, a bottle of mineral water, suncream, insect repellent and a three-course evening meal for two persons, including a bottle of wine.
The combined cost of these ten traveller must-haves is just £40.10 this year, representing a nine per cent fall from the collective price recorded in 2013.
