Where Should You Spend Your British Pounds This Summer

The holiday destinations that show there's no need to penny-pinch this summer

If you are struggling for cash at the minute, you may think that the last thing you can afford is a holiday this summer. After all, there's just so much stuff that even the most frugal break requires you to pay. Airfares? Check. Taxis? Almost certainly. Don't get us started on the temptations of the local bars and clubs as well, or the cost of hotel room service. It's all just too much.

This infographic, then, may be a timely one for those of you who are well-versed in using all of the above protestations whenever anyone asks, "So where will you be going this year?"

Yes, it really is possible to get massive 'bang for your buck' from both short-haul and long-haul holiday destinations. Nor is the below list exactly one of 'cheap and nasty' backwaters - these are among the most popular places for Britons to embark on holiday.

Hugely frequented destinations with something for everyone

The above infographic shows six countries, each greatly varied from the next, so we're sure that there will be at least somewhere here of appeal, whatever your tastes as a holidaymaker.

If it's sun, sun and more sun that you want, for example, you simply can't beat Spain. Bulgaria, meanwhile, is the slightly more obscure, up-and-coming alternative, combining gorgeous stretches of sand with thriving bars and restaurants. Those not good enough for you? Well, what about India, with its iconic attractions like the Taj Mahal, or Hungary, where you will find remarkably well-preserved historical cities like Budapest and Debrecen?

For good measure, we've also thrown in Vietnam - a place of jaw-dropping natural beauty, but also of a vibrant street culture and excellent high-end restaurants - and Cambodia, which boasts such draws as the bustling capital city of Phnom Penh, the Temples of Angkor and the beach resort of Sihanoukville.

A brilliant summer holiday is possible... for less than you might think

But of course, all of the above is rendered irrelevant if you can't afford to travel to and stay in any of these super-desirable places. Thankfully, the infographic shows just how attainable holidays to these destinations can really be.

For each country, such insightful information as how long it will take you to get there, the local currency and the most popular destination has been provided, along with figures like the exchange rate to GBP and the typical cost of a hotel, taxi, train ticket, water, beer and restaurant meal.

The end result is your perfect 'cut out and keep' guide to just how much it will set you back to embark on a break to some of the most remarkable places in the world. Even if your financial situation is such that you have been forced to take out a bad credit payday loan, these figures should demonstrate that you can still enjoy your dream summer holiday in 2016.
