A recent survey conducted by Teletext Holidays and reported in the Daily Mail found Bulgaria to be the Best Value for Money holiday location in the World.
Holidaymakers can fly to the Baltic state for around £58 and check into a three star hotel room for less than £50 (my Apartment in Sunny Beach Bulgaria only costs from £5.50 per person per night*) claims the World’s Best Value Breaks Report which surveyed holiday costs in 20 worldwide destinations.
The findings cement Bulgaria’s reputation as a cheap package holiday destination, with many Brits now shunning the Costas in favour of Black Sea resorts like Sunny Beach and Golden Sands.
Visitors to the eastern European country can get a pint of beer for just 49p, a three-course meal for £7 a head, and – should you want one – a Big Mac for £1.
In 2008 this Value for Money rating should be even greater as Bulgaria, even though it is in the EU, still has its own currency, the lev. This is not dropping against the pound as the euro is – British holidaymakers to Spain, France and other European locations are going to find that their pound buys much less than it did a year ago.
Flights closer to the Sunny Beach resort are a little more expensive than the flights quoted into the capital city of Sofia. But with train and coach fares at around £10 for the trip down from Sofia to Sunny Beach, why not choose this as an option to enhance your holiday and experience more of the Bulgarian culture and countryside.
Once you arrive in Sunny Beach then you have a wonderful choice of holiday options. You can choose to relax by the pool or on the beach, take part in a wide range of watersports and activities, or venture slightly further out of the resort to enjoy any one of a number of more cultural experiences.
As the day draws to an end you have a huge choice of resturants, bars and clubs in which to eat, drink and be merry, knowing that it is not going to cost you a fortune.
