Overseas tourists advised to research living costs

People who are planning to take a holiday in Europe have been advised to look at the individual costs of each country.

According to the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO), many people are being put off visiting the mainland by current exchange rates.

Indeed, the pound has in recent months slumped to a record low against the single European currency.

However, AITO insisted that the cost of living varies from country to country, which means some parts of the eurozone could be much cheaper than others.

"You can go to some places which have the euro but they have great value," it insisted.

AITO added that people should not automatically assume that membership of the eurozone equates to higher prices.

According to figures from the Post Office, France is currently the most expensive destination in the eurozone, as prices are over 16 per cent higher than those in Spain.
