Egypt 'best-value destination'

28th Dec 2012

Egypt has been named as the best-value travel destination for people planning to take a break in January.

Post Office Travel Money said the North African country, which has long been a favourite with British travellers, offers "cheap all-inclusive packages at three, four and five-star levels".

Mexico and Vietnam are also among the top ten list, while Orlando in Florida came second, followed by Dubai. Other good value-for money destinations include Thailand, Kenya, Bali, the Dominican Republic and Sri Lanka.

Post Office Travel Money head Andrew Brown said: "Every year travel companies report a spike in bookings immediately after Christmas as thousands of people go online or to their local travel agent to book an escape abroad.

"And after a year of washout weather, spur of the moment winter sun holiday bookings are more likely than ever.

"The strongest contender for post-Christmas blues bookings has to be Egypt with its cheap all inclusive packages at three, four and five-star levels."
