    Holidays abroad still cheaper

    If the dodgy Easter weekend weather made a summer 'staycation' seem that bit less appealing, here's some news to cheer you up. A new study just published by Thomas Cook has revealed that, despite the falling pound, the credit crunch and the cost of flights, it might still be a better idea to travel abroad for your 2009 holiday. As reported by TravelMole and the Mail Online, prices in many overseas resorts are still significantly cheaper than staying in the UK. The 'holiday cost of living' study compares prices in 16 popular destinations. Goa comes out lowest - where a cup of coffee costs a whopping ten times less than it does in the UK. Other long or medium haul destinations, like Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco and Turkey also get glowing reports for their bargain status. That's no huge surprise. After all, we've been hearing for a while now that you could find a bargain break by travelling further afield this year. But the study also states that many Eurozone countries are also better than Britain for tight budgets - with flights for most short-haul destinations actually costing less than UK rail travel. Spain (where you can get a three-course meal for around £11.50) and Cyprus are the cheapest European places to visit, and a beer in Bulgaria only costs £1.20.See below the 'Top Ten Value Destinations', as chosen by Thomas Cook, and the average cost per day in each (for comparative purposes): UK - £48.51Goa - £14.10Cuba - £30.75Tunisia - £33.05Turkey - £33.74Egypt - £34.0Bulgaria - £34.60Mainland Spain - £34.66Morocco - £36.17Majorca - £42.50Cyprus - £45.38
