If you’re planning to take a vacation this year but don’t want to spend a fortune, the latest Holiday Money report from Post Office Travel Money might inspire an idea or two. Its round-up includes popular vacation destinations in the U.S., Mexico, Europe, Africa, and Asia where you’ll get the best deals in 2019, as Insider reports.

Post Office, a UK-based provider of foreign currency, created its rankings using data from tourist boards and tour operators. It compared the cost of eight items that tourists are likely to be shelling out money for, including dinner for two, a bottle of beer, a cup of coffee, and sunscreen. (This list accounts for local travel costs, but if you’re looking to save money, you’ll also need to factor airfare into the equation. This will vary, depending on which city you fly out of and into.)

Of the 42 resort towns and cities analyzed, Bulgaria’s aptly-named Sunny Beach is the place where your dollar will go the furthest. Located along the Black Sea, this tourist hub is known for its nightlife, amusement and water parks, and affordable hotels.

Next on the list is the Turkish resort town of Marmaris, situated along the Mediterranean coast. In addition to sun and sea, its proximity to a 16th-century castle and rock tombs may also appeal to history and architecture buffs.
