As the fallout from the BREXIT vote still needs to be determined, UK holidaymakers might be wondering what kind of impact this will have on their trips and if they’ll have to resort to beans on toast for breakfast. 

Fortunately that’s not the case as FairFX has revealed a new list of holiday destinations, where the British Pound can still get you a full continental breakfast without breaking the bank.

For the first time in 2 years, the Pound has dropped below twenty South African Rands, but the hospitality stays the same as ever. Table Mountain, The Garden Route and Kruger National Park are all worth a trip to the south of Africa.

Topping the list is a second South American country and according to the FairFX currency analysis, for every £500 exchanged, you’ll get 6,000 more pesos than 2013. A family destination where Mendoza Malbecs, Buenos Aires Tangos and Incan mummies will delight all.
