Algarve a Top Choice for UK Tourists

The results of a new travel survey recently released in the United Kingdom place the Algarve in top spot among British holidaymakers.
The Post Office Holiday Costs Barometer for 2013 concluded that Portugal's sun-soaked southernmost region is a number-one value destination due to the low cost of holidaying, which has dropped by almost 15 per cent compared with the previous year.
Several key tourist destinations were surveyed but the Algarve was found to offer the best prices, narrowly beating Spain.
Albufeira in the Algarve emerged as the cheapest of twenty holiday hotspots for ten regular tourist purchases such as meals, drinks, supermarket mineral water, daily newspapers and cigarettes.
