We may have just had the summer holidays but are you already planning your next break away? You’re not alone.
When the leaves start to turn, the colder weather begins to set in and the days become shorter, there’s nothing better than knowing you have a fun city break planned.
And the best bit is, jetting off to Europe really doesn’t have to break the bank either. In fact, during Autumn airfare prices drop and all sorts of deals can be found. The best one of all? Belgrade, apparently.
According to a new report in the Post Office Travel Money City Costs Barometer, the Serbian capital has been named the cheapest city to visit this autumn.
The report compared the average prices that holidaymakers will have to pay for two nights of three-star accommodation for the first weekend in October. The report looked at 46 cities in Europe and analysed the cost of 11 other essential holiday elements, including a glass of wine, coffee, a three-course dinner, a travel card, admission to a top art gallery and a sightseeing city bus tour, to determine which cities were the cheapest to holiday in.
Belgrade came in at an absolute bargain with the total cost of a trip to the city totalling at £148.70. Dinner out with a bottle of house wine, was found to cost just £33.99 for two people. And the price of entry to the city’s top attraction – the Church of Saint Sava – cost just £3 per person.
Total steal, right?
Other bargain destinations were found to be Krakow in Poland, with a trip costing as little as £169.21 for a weekend stay and Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, just 35p more expensive at £169.56. These figures might not include flights, but we reckon you can’t really do much better for a vacay.
