Premier Holidays reports that a Post Office Travel Money poll, taken over the summer, indicates that the Algarve is one of the most budget-friendly places in Europe to take a self-catering holiday.

The study found that the western Mediterranean resorts fared much better than those located in Greece and Italy, and the south of Portugal is now being celebrated as one of the best locations in Europe for a family holiday.
