People heading to France on car ferries from Portsmouth to Santander
can enjoy much lower petrol prices in the eurozone.
This has been noted by Post Office Money, due to the pound gaining in value against the euro in recent months.
It means those planning a holiday in Spain or other eurozone countries will find driving up to 10.4 per cent cheaper, making it a tempting proposition to take the car or hire one.
The survey found that Spanish fuel is currently the cheapest in the single currency area,as well as revealing that while some countries still have more expensive petrol, diesel is far cheaper on the continent.
Post Office Head of Travel Money Andrew Brown said: "Our research shows that UK holidaymakers are not deterred by the high fuel prices they will find when driving in some countries this summer."
The gap between UK and European petrol prices has closed significantly in recent times as falling world oil prices have forced down costs at the UK pumps, the Automobile Association recently noted.
