Survey reveals best value autumn city break destinations
Pre-Christmas holidaymakers looking for a bargain break before the hustle and bustle of Christmas begins should take note of the latest Travelzoo survey which analysed ten of the most popular autumn city break destinations.
The popular travel website has managed to put together a categorised list of the best cities to go to for things like affordability, weather, public transit, costs and food.
Based on feedback from their customers, as well as seasoned advice from their appointed ‘travel experts’ in each city, the infographic designed by the company also manages to offer prospective city travellers budget tips, as well as hotel and dining recommendations.
Prague is a popular European city gaining momentum as a tourist hotspot, but this infographic informs travellers on a budget and in need of some inspiration that it is the best city to visit when looking at value for money. The average meal for two cost only £18 – cheap in contrast to London’s £50 dinner bill.For travellers looking for cheap dining alternatives, or even just a cheap pint, Prague seems to be the city of best value for their needs. For those travellers looking to take in the local sights under the sun – Marrakech or Dubai seem to offer best value for money.
Despite being one of the coldest destinations to visit this autumn, Prague is also the cheapest city for public transport.
If you’re hoping for a quiet chance to explore some of the best cities the world has to offer whilst simultaneously avoiding the crowds, then the infographic also gives travellers ideas on places to visit where crowds of people are less likely. For travellers to Paris, Chateau de Vincennes, a royal castle to the east of the capital, is less likely to draw in the crowds of tourists in comparison to the famous Eiffel Tower, and tourists in Rome should check out the Knights of the Malta Keyhole instead of more popular and busy attractions like the Colosseum.
Travellers looking to seek out some early Christmas bargains might want to head to New York, where gifts are reportedly 73% cheaper than in London, Travelzoo reports.
