Every year, Post Office Travel Money compares the cost of travel items in destinations around the world to find the cheapest places to holiday based on current exchange rates.

This year’s ranking looked at destinations in 44 countries around the world, calculating the total average spend for one day in each location.

The total is measured by the average cost of 10 holiday items, including a cup of coffee, a pint of beer, a bottle of water, suncream, insect repellent, and a three-course dinner for two with a bottle of wine.

From Cancun to Cape Town, here are the cheapest long-haul holiday destinations to travel to in 2017.
