Egypt, South Africa, Japan and Argentina have all been recommended as top value destinations for British holidaymakers this year.

Mark Hodson, the founder of 101 Holidays, made the recommendations after a poor start to the year for sterling against both the euro and dollar raised the costs for Brits travelling to the eurozone and the Americas.

Egypt is regarded as one of the best short-haul destinations thanks to a 6.5% dip in prices. Hotels are also offering good deals this year, with the Arab Spring having impacted on tourism figures.

Japan won praise for its cheap eateries, with the commuters who eat out up to three times a day driving down prices. South Africa and Argentina were cited as places with 'reasonable prices on the ground'.

'By selecting your destination with care, you can drastically reduce the price of your next holiday,' Mr Hodson wrote on the Huffington Post's UK blog.
