London, UK (PRWeb UK) April 28, 2010
Research from Post Office Travel Money has revealed that Prague is the cheapest city for UK holidaymakers wanting to get best value from their foreign currency. According to the Post Office Travel Money City Costs Barometer, the Czech city is the top city break destination for making UK holidaymakers' travel money go further.
Based on current foreign currency exchange rates, Prague ranked by far the cheapest of the 15 city break destinations surveyed by Post Office Travel Money. At £106.17, the 11 typical city holiday purchases compared in the Post Office Travel Money City Costs Barometer cost almost two-thirds less in Prague than in New York, the most expensive city surveyed. Lisbon took second place as the cheapest city destination for UK holidaymakers' travel money. The Portuguese capital was also revealed as the cheapest eurozone city choice for UK travellers looking to make the most of their foreign currency.
Elsewhere in Eastern Europe, Budapest and Warsaw emerged as cities where thrifty UK tourists will also get more for their travel money.
Sarah Munro, Post Office Head of Travel Money, said: "UK holidaymakers planning a city break this spring should do their homework very carefully. We found big price differences between cities and in cash-strapped times tourists can make their foreign currency stretch further by picking one of Europe's cheaper capitals, like Prague or Lisbon."
