Ayia Napa: cheaper than some destinations but far from the cheapest


AYIA Napa ranks in the middle of a list produced by the UK Post Office as regards the cost of 12 holiday essentials this summer in ten of the most popular European resorts for Britons.

The yearly survey compares the prices of products and services such as suncream, a three-course meal for a family of four, a glass of wine and a pedalo ride.

The total cost in Ayia Napa would be £98.46, amounting, a 5.5 per cent increase in comparison to the summer of 2012.

Corfu had a cost of £99.91, Crete £107.75, Bournemouth in England £139.28 and Sorrento in Italy £176.

Sixteen of Britons’ favourite destinations were found to be more expensive than Ayia Napa.

In all destinations prices had increased since last summer, with the exception of Crete. The Greek island has dropped its prices by 18.8 per cent, more than any other rival destination.

On the other hand, the cost of the 12 products and services was lower than Ayia Napa in Marmaris in Turkey (£96.57), Algarve in Portugal (£96.27), Spain’s Mallorca (£91.02) and Costa del Sol (£77.68) and Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach (£76.35).
