If you’re planning a late year getaway or looking ahead to next year, make sure to take a look at these best value long haul holidays!
We may be coming towards the end of the year, but there’s still time to get those last-minute holidays booked in to enjoy a bit of autumn and winter sun!
Before you head online or pop down to your local travel agents, Post Office Travel Money and online holiday company Travelbag have created a new report which lists the best value long haul holidays for both 2019 and the start of 2020.
According to the report released, local prices in half of the 30 destinations that were surveyed have recently fallen, meaning that these holiday hotspots are the best value long haul holidays as of the time of writing.
