Value-for-money destinations revealed

15th Aug 2012

Countries in India, Africa and South America are among the best value for British travellers wanting a new holiday experience, new figures show.

Research from travel money specialist Moneycorp and travel advice website gapyear.com compared destinations on the strength of sterling against local currencies.

Brazil, India, Nepal and South Africa were found to offer the best value for money, with the pound having risen against those currencies by anywhere between 18% and 26% over the past year.

Moneycorp currency expert Olann Kerrison commented: "There has been a great deal of fluctuation in the currency markets over the past 12 months and in countries like Brazil, India and South Africa, the pound has strengthened significantly.

"The strength of the pound is great news for gappers heading off on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. However, by the time they reach some of these countries, the economic landscape might have changed and their pound might not stretch quite as far."
