Bulgaria Voted Tops for Cheap Summer Breaks
This year’s financial woes have prompted many Brits to put their summer holiday plans on hold, but this needn’t be the case if you choose your destination wisely.
Consider Bulgaria, which has claimed the top spot in this year’s Holiday Costs Barometer from Post Office Travel Services, overtaking last year’s top three Thailand, South Africa and Egypt – and the good news is you don’t need to fly half way around the world to get there!
