Going abroad doesn’t have to cost the earth. trip expert Simon Calder told Rip Off Britain where holidaymakers can expect to have the cheapest holiday for their next trip.
Many Brits will head to Spain for some winter sun, but there may be cheaper options that you haven’t considered yet.
On saving money, he said: “When you go abroad, you just have to be very careful with your destination choice.
“For example, I think that Portugal is much cheaper than Spain or Italy. For less than a euro you can happily get a cup of coffee or a meal for 10 euros or less.”
He explained that despite traveling nearly 200 miles, a train from Faro to Lisbon costs about £4.
He called the vacation spot “really good value,” expanding this claim to “everywhere east of the former Iron Curtain.
He named Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania as low-cost destinations.
In addition, Simon resolved the current confusion surrounding the issuance and expiry dates of passports.
Knowing what each date means can mean the difference between staying home and going on vacation.
As reported by the Post Office, your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay for those visiting Australia.
This is the same for Canada, but if your validity is less than six months, it may take longer to go through immigration control.
For both China and Egypt, your passport must be valid for at least six months.
Brits traveling abroad are advised to check the guidelines of the particular country they are visiting.
