Bulgaria 'is best for bargain break'

Stag parties looking to take a weekend away without breaking the bank this year might opt to book their budget flights and jet off to Bulgaria.

The eastern European nation has long been renowned for its cheap booze and party atmosphere, but it seems it now provides an even greater bargain for tourists.

Along with Turkey and Croatia, the country was named among Europe's best buys in the Post Office Holiday Costs Barometer, with Bulgaria reclaiming top spot as the cheapest option on the continent.

Despite the weak pound, visitors will find that drinks and meals are still available at bargain prices, providing all the necessary ingredients for a top night out on the town.

Post Office head of travel services Sarah Munro said this will come as welcome news for UK travellers, who can "get more than expected for their money".

This comes after Nigel Pocklington, managing director of Hotels.com, advised Brits who are looking to be savvy with their spending this year to venture outside the eurozone to get the cheapest deals, with destinations such as Riga stag weekends, Bratislava stag weekends and Prague offering particularly good value.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19152864-ADNFCR
