A recent report suggested the most affordable holiday destination for 2017. Here is a rundown of the best places and their corresponding travel cost.

The latest annual Post Office Holiday Money Report matched average costs of tourist expenses over 44 worldwide locations, to reveal the cheapest travel destinations for holidaymakers for the next 12 months. The report named Portugal as the most affordable holiday destination of the year for 2017. Ranked second is Sunny Beach in Bulgaria who trailed behind the Algarve with $42 travel cost. Costa del Sol in Spain ranked third place at $45 estimated travel expenses.

Marmaris in Turkey will set travelers to spend $56, shadowed by Prague at $57. Budapest $60 and Corfu $70 have maintained their top 10 places. Paphos ($70) however has ascended to sixth place, its top most position ever as the most affordable travel destination in 2017. The Japanese capital of Tokyo, where the items cost $65, on the average, is the only destination outside of Europe to be included in the top 10. Tokyo is the cheapest among the Far Eastern cities with tourist staples costing 18% less than in Phuket ($78), 28% less than in Penang ($88) and 43% less than in Beijing (£$110).

Post Office Travel Money also conducted a study on the travel expenses in the Caribbean Region. Between the six Caribbean islands surveyed, resort prices in Tobago ($97) and the Dominican Republic ($98) are much cheaper than in Barbados ($142), Jamaica ($151), St Lucia ($152) and Antigua ($171), which are among the survey's seven most expensive destinations.

Andrew Brown of Post Office Travel Money was quoted by Mail saying that holidaymakers can do little about sterling's value but they can do their homework and plan trips to resorts or cities where prices for meals, drinks, and other tourist staples are unbelievably low.
