The Costa del Sol has been named as the top destination for families looking to get more for their money on an overseas half-term break.

The region in the south of Spain was found to be the cheapest of a dozen popular resorts around the world for tourist essentials. The eight items surveyed - a family evening meal with drinks, cup of coffee, bottle of beer, Coca-Cola, glass of wine, large bottle of mineral water, suncream and insect repellent - add up to £42.49 in southern Spain.

Marmaris in Turkey is the highest priced European resort at £68.86 for the same range of items.
