Malta and Cyprus the best bargains
BRITONS looking for the best bargain holidays in Commonwealth countries should make for Malta or Cyprus, a study revealed.
The cost of a week-long holiday in Malta has risen by only £1 over the last year, figures from M&S Money showed.
The study of ten Commonwealth countries showed that, including flights, Cyprus (£1,199) had the lowest total costs, with Malta next (£1,230) and Kenya third (£1,435).
The most expensive destination was Singapore (£2,662) followed by New Zealand (£2,206).
Jane Lawson, head of travel money at M&S Money, said: “In the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year many people will be tempted to follow in the footsteps of the Royal Family and see what the Commonwealth has to offer.
“Luckily, favourable exchange rates and lower inflation mean many countries in the Commonwealth offer great value for money.”
