A new study by travel money specialist FairFX found that the worst of those places is Costa Rica, where exchanging pounds for local cash could cost Brits hundreds more than it did not long ago.

The pound is currently down 18 per cent against the Costa Rican colon, meaning significantly less for every £1,000 exchanged, which equates to £219 less in the local currency, compared with April 2022.

Il Repubblica Dominicana is also a pricey place for Brits to visit at the moment.

The pound is down by 17 per cent against the Dominican peso, which means £207 less for every £1,000 exchanged, compared with six months earlier.

Cuba is a destination worth dodging at the moment, as the pound is down 16 per cent on the Cuban peso.
