We’ve rounded up the 19 cheapest places to take a holiday in 2019, according to the ranking.

With half of January still to get through, chances are the thought of booking a trip to sunnier climes is looking pretty good right now — but purse strings may still be tight after the holiday season, too.

Luckily, Post Office Travel Money’s annual Holiday Money report has just been released — and it reveals the destinations around the world where you’ll get the best bang for your buck in 2019.

Based on data from national and regional tourist boards and specialist tour operators, the report’s annual Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer compares the costs of eight tourist staple items — a meal for two, a cup of coffee, a bottle of beer, a Coca-Cola, a glass of wine, a bottle of water, suncream, and insect repellant — across 42 resorts and cities worldwide.

The ranking then calculates a total cost for each destination to figure out which is the cheapest for a holiday.

We’ve rounded up the 19 most wallet-friendly destinations on the list.
