How Brexit pound exchange rate hikes holiday prices for YOUR family - in all its depressing glory

Welcome to Brexit Airport, where you're just one stop away from the European break of your dreams!

Oh - and we'll be taking an extra £100 off you, please.

The pound hit a nine-month low against the Euro yesterday, trading at €1.10, as fears mount of a no-deal Brexit.

Lots of things about leaving the EU sound like meaningless prophecies of doom. But if you like a cheap break abroad, the falling pound is something that actually hits your pocket.

If you're planning a holiday in Europe this month, things will quite simply be more expensive.

We've come a long way from the €1.30 exchange rate the night before Britain voted to leave the EU in June 2016. This week it's even down since mid-April, when it hit €1.16.

Yes, there are ways a low pound can help Britain - making our exports more favourable, for instance. But you won't be thinking about that when you're forking out for a hotel on the Costa Del Sol.

So we've taken 10 things tourists might buy - and looked at how much more they cost since April and the 2016 Brexit vote.

Please enjoy our gloriously depressing Brexit holiday guide.

1. 7-night luxury family hotel room in Alicante

Night before the Brexit vote: £1,200

2. Meal in Rome with a cheap bottle of wine

A family restaurant meal in the Italian capital could easily set you back €90 - that's £3 more than in April, or £12 more than before the Brexit vote.
