Winter Sun Destinations to Stretch Your Pound Further


Destination PR - MexicoAs the British pound fluctuates against the US dollar and the Euro, finding holiday destinations that are great value for money is seemingly harder now than ever before. HolidayPirates however, has a plentiful supply of tips and deals up its sleeves for those hoping to catch some winter sun without breaking the bank.

Magical Bali Christmas holiday from £540 per person

Indonesia offers idyllic beaches and tropical temperatures, all without the price tag of some better-known South East Asian destinations such as Thailand. £1 buys you 16,997 Indonesian Rupiah, where a three course meal for two in a mid range restaurant costs less than £10, and a bottle of beer will set you back a mere quid.

The island of Bali promises luxurious surroundings whilst still being excellent value for money. This HolidayPirates deal to Bali includes a fourteen night stay at the four-star Swiss-Belhotel Rainforest, nestled in lush greenery near the heart of Kuta. Guests can make use of the hotel’s extensive on-site facilities including restaurant, gym, spa and swimming pool.

All-inclusive First Choice Premier package to Mexico from £910 per person

Mexico is exceptionally good value for money, according to latest research by currency specialist Fairfax, which says the pound buys 28% more Mexican Pesos than it did three years ago. This means for every £500 exchanged, you’ll get an extra £109 in your pocket!

This HolidayPirates deal to Mexico is a First Choice Premier package offering a fourteen night stay at the five-star Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa. With board on an all-inclusive basis, guests can keep the bulk of their holiday costs down, stretching their pound even further.

All-inclusive First Choice Premier package to Jamaica from £864 per person

South African safari and beach adventure from £744 per person

South Africa’s weak Rand means you can explore Table Mountain and the Kruger National Park for less, where exchanging £500 will get you an extra £130 back. Renowned for its vineyards just outside of Cape Town, a bottle of wine in South Africa will cost you less than a fiver.
