Brits booking flights to Spain and taking a break at La Manga Club this year have been advised to do their homework and shop around for a good deal on foreign exchange.
According to Moneysupermarket.com, a person buying 1000 from Travelex at Heathrow Airport can expect to pay an average of £68 more than someone withdrawing euros on their debit or credit card.
Travel money expert Peter Harrison commented: "Using an appropriate product can save holidaymakers a packet and there are several different options available to savvy travellers.
If the idea of waking up every morning and taking a dip in your own private pool appeals to you, then you may wish to consider renting a villa at the Mar Menor Resort in Murcia.

Brits have been urged to take out an adequate travel insurance policy before taking a holiday in Spain or elsewhere this year.
The warning comes after a recent survey by Sheilas' Wheels revealed that the average holidaymaker carries a handbag with contents worth £1,100.
Of those polled, eight per cent said they have credit cards with an available limit of at least £10,000 in their purse.
Furthermore, it was found that the average makeup kit is worth more than £100.
Travel insurance is essential when taking a holiday in Spain or elsewhere.
This is according to Paul Thilo, vice-president of Direct Travel Insurance, who said people should view it as an vital purchase.
He noted that the cost of a good policy is very small compared to the expense involved in replacing lost luggage or paying for medical bills.
"I would advise those who are planning a holiday to consider carefully what they wish to be covered for, even if they are travelling on a shoe string," Mr Thilo commented.
As well as the restaurants within the resort, guests holidaying at La Torre Resort will find several eateries to explore within the locality.
There is something to suit all tastes and budgets nearby, including La Tropical Restaurant in Los Alcazares, which serves up a range of rice dishes, as well as tapas and fresh seafood.

As well as lounging around by the pool, holidaymakers staying at La Torre Resort in Murcia can also explore some of the nearby beaches.
There are dozens of places to choose from, including the Mar Menor, which is Spain's largest saltwater lagoon and is the perfect place to take a dip or enjoy water sports activities.
Holidaymakers will also find plenty of beaches to explore along the sun-soaked Costa Calida, including the two sandy stretches of coastline at Lo Pagan and the beach at Santiago de la Ribera.
