Summer on a Shoestring

As the UK recession officially hits its fifth year in 2013 overtaking the previous record of four years set between 1930-1934 and talks of a "triple dip" recession escalate, many holidaymakers are finding it increasingly difficult to save their hard earned cash for a summer holiday. Although currently not as deep as the downturn of the 30's, this recession has steadily been eating its way through the population's wallets, leaving travellers searching high and low across the country for the best value deals they can find to help get the most out of every penny they spend.

Research has found that holidaymakers are searching for destinations that not only offer a great package price but also excellent value when in resort. With this is mind Balkan Holidays have created an exciting range of Bulgaria Package Holidays for the upcoming summer season with deals starting from as little as £277pp which include flights, transfers, accommodation and breakfast.

Holidays to Bulgaria offer travellers the opportunity to get away from the unpredictable UK weather and laze in the warm sunshine on one of the countries many EU Blue Flag awarded beaches at a fraction of the cost. Although a member of the European Union since 2007, Bulgaria have chosen to retain their own currency called the “Lev” and its for this very reason that Bulgaria is able to offer its visitors the incredible non euro value they have come to know and love.

The 2012 annual Post Office Holiday Costs Survey found Bulgaria to be the best value holiday destination in Europe and its anticipated that Bulgaria will once again be crowned champions when the new 2013 survey is released later this year.
