Eastern European cities come out cheapest in Post Office report

Cities in Eastern Europe have been listed as the cheapest for a city break, according to a new Post Office report. The City Costs Barometer lists Riga in Latvia as the best bargain city, sometimes less than half the price of holidays to Paris, Amsterdam and New York. Prague, Budapest, Tallinn and Warsaw then followed the Latvian capital as having the lowest holiday spend. This included the total amount for holiday costs including one hotel night for two adults (three star), three attraction visits, a sightseeing bus tour, 48 travel card, airport transfers, a three course evening meal and then a cup or bottle of coffee, lager and Coca-Cola. In addition, prices were down for several cities including Rome, Berlin and Dublin. “These price falls are good news for people planning city breaks this spring. However, wide variations in costs between competing cities mean that tourists really do need to do their homework before booking,” said Sarah Munro, head of money at the Post Office. Stockholm, New York and Boston were named as the most expensive city spends, respectively.
