Research from Post Office Travel Money has revealed that the Cypriot city of Paphos is the best value winter holiday destination – a useful tip for those looking to find some sun whilst the UK freezes!

Holiday in Paphos

As reported by several newspapers and other outlets, including in this Mail Online article, the city – which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is set to become Europe’s capital of Culture in 2017 – offers holidaymakers the cheapest high quality getaways of all those included in the research.

According to the recently released report, getaways to the heavenly Greek location – which features an enchanting mix of historic ruins and a vibrant, modern harbour area – are an average of 19% more affordable this winter than similar breaks in the Canary Islands.

In terms of long haul beach destinations, the Post Office report revealed that holidays in Cancun, Mexico come out on top as best value for money, whilst the cheapest long-haul location overall was the city of Orlando, Florida.

The experts at Post Office Travel Money have factored in the recent fluctuations in the value of the pound whilst collating their results, and explained in their findings how these were informed by the fact that the pound has risen against the euro by 6% since the start of November, whilst the Mexican peso is also much weaker against the pound than it was at this point in 2015.

Of course, there are many other great value destinations to choose from this winter, wherever you want to go in the world, so sun seekers should be sure to look around at what’s available before taking the plunge and booking their over 40s holidays for single travellers.
