A Bulgaria seaside resort has the cheapest beer for British holidaymakers, a new survey shows.

A bottle of local beer or lager at Sunny Beach, a small seaside Bulgarian resort on the Black Sea, costs as little as £0.64 beating the next cheapest location (Algarve, Portugal) by almost 20 pence.

The resort started life during the communist period in 1958 but has developed into a thriving tourism hub.

Other cheap locations for drowning your sorrows include Cape Town, South Africa, Prague in the Czech Republic, and Kuta in Bali, according to a survey by the Post Office Travel Money.

The data, which examined other cost factors such as the price of a cup of coffee and a three-course evening meal for two with a bottle of wine, found that Prague was the cheapest city break overall.
